Speaking to the press ahead of the weekend’s action, Ange Postecoglou was asked about the likelihood of new signings coming in and whether his current squad size was impacting that, and he suggested all that will change soon enough.

Despite there being much change at Tottenham Hotspur already this summer, there is still expected to be plenty more activity in the final week of the transfer window, both in terms of incoming players and outgoings.

New Spurs boss, Ange Postecoglou, has already put his stamp on the team with his attacking brand of football. The Australian has also been able to add quality players such as Micky van de Ven, James Maddison, and Guglielmo Vicario to his squad.

However, the departure of Harry Kane to Bayern Munich earlier this month has left a considerable gap in the Lilywhites attack.

It was believed there would be a lot more players heading out of the exit door at Tottenham this summer as the club looks to offload peripheral figures, but progress has been slow on that front.

Postecoglou suggests fast Spurs transfer activity

When asked about the idea of new signings being held up by the fact the club hasn’t been able to sell players yet, Postecoglou seemed to dismiss this and suggest that deals in both directions should happen before the transfer window closes.

He told Football.London: “Not necessarily. These kind of things are pretty fluid, they can happen pretty quickly. At the moment you can see by doing the maths we have got too many players in terms of when we submit our final list.

“There will be guys here who won’t be on that list if nothing changes so I am pretty sure that will change. From now until the end of the window I am sure there will be some movement.”

Spurs Web Opinion

There is no question that Spurs simply must move on a good handful of fringe players before the transfer window closes. Whether it would be to free up space for new signings or not, doesn’t really matter. The simple fact is we have too many players that we just do not need.
