It has been a long old wait for Tottenham fans to see a new signing come through the doors of Hotspur Way, but transfers look to be happening this week.

Jack Clarke has reportedly completed his medical today ahead of a move to Spurs from Leeds later in the week (Standard), with a fee of around £10m agreed (Guardian).

Meanwhile, Tottenham have also apparently agreed a £65m deal for Lyon central midfielder Tanguy Ndombele (Sky Sports), who is also expected to join later this week (Sun).

For the time being, Lucas Moura is still Tottenham’s newest signing, despite joining from PSG almost a year and a half ago in January 2018.

In this period without a single Spurs signing, the Lilywhite’s top six rivals have been busy in the transfer market, spending over half a billion pounds (Independent).

Since Jan 2018, Man City have spent £69m, Liverpool £160m, Chelsea £189m, Arsenal £70m, and Man United £82.5m.

That makes for a total of a staggering £570.2m worth of spending from Tottenham’s top six rivals since Spurs last signed a player. Yet Pochettino still guided his side to a Champions League final and a top-four finish.
