Some Spurs fans are thrilled to hear that Tottenham’s managing director of football Fabio Paratici is going about revamping the club’s scouting department.

Tottenham activity in the transfer market over recent years has been a bit hit-and-miss, with some big money signings failing to live up to expectations.

Football.London’s Alasdair Gold has revealed that Paratici is undertaking an overhaul of the club’s scouting network.

It is claimed that Paratici is prioritising addressing the area along with the club’s technical performance director Steve Hitchen.

The report explains that Daniel Levy has chased Paratici for a long time and when he eventually got the Italian this summer, the Spurs chairman gave him a role with more power than previous directors of football at the club.

The North London club are now expected to invest significantly in scouting to bring the department to the same level as some of the other top clubs in Europe.

New recruitment roles are thus expected to be created at Spurs, who are thought to be keen on identifying and bringing in some of the best young players in the world to the club.

The report further revealed that this week, a new video scouting role was advertised by Tottenham online, with the successful candidate having to report directly to the club’s chief scout Brian Carey.

Some Tottenham fans on social media were delighted to hear about Paratici’s decision, insisting that it was a long time coming.

The only way we can narrow the gap with the likes of City, Chelsea and United and compete with these clubs over the long-term is by identifying and snapping up the best young players in the world before they become superstars. So, investing in the scouting department is something that is essential.
