Report: The situation surrounding Tottenham’s potential January spending

Tottenham Hotspur made some big steps in the summer as they not only broke their transfer record, but also brought in a number of young and exciting players.

Jack Clarke and Ryan Sessegnon, both teenagers who have torn up the Championship in recent seasons, were joined by Tanguy Ndombele and finally Giovani Lo Celso on loan from Real Betis.

Football London claim that these signings led to a £71m net spend for the Lilywhites in the summer, which is set to rise once the Lo Celso deal becomes permanent at the end of the season.

However, the same report claims that the summer window did fall short of what Spurs were aiming for, as Poch and Levy wanted an overhaul of the squad.

Unfortunately, the move for Dybala fell through and the likes of Eriksen, Alderweireld, and Vertonghen have dominated the headlines for their contract situations rather than performances on the pitch.

Football London have predicted that Spurs will not splash the cash in January, as they are actually £2m in profit over the last five January windows.

They do concede that if Poch pushes for any new signings, he will have to sell players too.

Spurs Web Opinion:

While I can agree that Spurs have historically not spent in January, I think things could change this year. It makes far more sense for Spurs to spend now and bed new players in, rather than wasting a whole summer on rebuilding again. I would like to see some major sales and major additions.
