The major disadvantage Spurs face compared to Real Madrid in the transfer window

Tottenham Hotspur waited 517 days to finally sign a player when Jack Clarke arrived from Leeds United earlier this month (BBC).

A second signing soon followed when the club smashed their transfer record with the arrival of Tanguy Ndombele during the very same day but there have been no other incomings.

Kieran Trippier has become the club’s highest-profile departure of the summer when he completed a £20million move to La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid (BBC).

The clock is now ticking down to the closure of the transfer window with fans certainly hoping that there will be more arrivals ahead of the new campaign if they are to challenge for the Premier League title.

When will the summer transfer window close?

The transfer window for Premier League clubs closes on Thursday, August 8 at 5 pm, just before the start of the new season, but clubs can still sell players to other nations if the window in that country remains open.

The transfer window in Spain closes on August 31st (talkSPORT) which means that the likes of Christian Eriksen could still leave the club for Real Madrid even after the English window has closed leaving the North London club unable to replace the Dane until at least January 2020.
