Tottenham Hotspur haven’t signed a player in over a year now, and became the first Premier League club in history not to sign a single player over an entire season this year.
The last incoming transfer was Lucas Moura from PSG way back in January 2018, with Mousa Dembele being the only piece of transfer business this season after he moved away to China.
Spurs will surely be looking to sign a new face or two in the summer once they have moved into their new stadium, and what better way to get fans off their feet than with a marquee signing for the new White Hart Lane.
There are many names out there in the transfer market that would generate a buzz around North London, but there is perhaps one that would also bring with it a sense of nostalgia.
Ryan Mason believes that Spurs should try to resign Gareth Bale, currently an unpopular figure at Real Madrid, to bolster their attack.
He said (SkySports): “Manchester United and Tottenham stick out for me, as they are both clubs looking to get back to that top level. I think Manchester City are recruiting in a way where they recruit young, trying to develop.
“Bale could play anywhere, but I think for Tottenham it would be a huge statement signing, improve their front line and in wide positions. Why not make him that marquee signing as they move into that new stadium?
“The type of mentality he has, he’ll be thinking: ‘Where can I go and impact things and win things?’ He’ll want to go and make the rest of his career as successful as possible.”
