Some Spurs fans on social media are thrilled to hear that Tottenham now have just one player over the age of 30 in their squad after Moussa Sissoko’s departure.

This summer has been an extremely eventful one for Tottenham, with Fabio Paratici wasting no time in rebuilding the squad.

The likes of Paulo Gazzaniga, Danny Rose, Joe Hart, Erik Lamela, Toby Alderweireld and Moussa Sissoko have all left the club while Pierluigi Gollini, Bryan Gil, Cristian Romero and Pape Sarr have come through the door.

As a result of these moves, the average age of the squad has come down considerably and if reports are to be believed, Paratici is not quite done yet, with the Italian eyeing a late move for Barca starlet Ilaix Moriba.

After Sissoko joined Watford on Friday, Hugo Lloris is now the only player in Nuno Espirito Santo’s squad who is over the age of 30.

Some Tottenham fans see this as evidence that the club is moving in the right direction.

Spurs Web Opinion

It feels like we are moving to a similar strategy to the one we had when Damien Comolli was the director of football i.e shopping for potential rather than established stars.

While this strategy will help us unearth some gems, it will also be a little hit and miss as one can never be sure how young players will develop.

So, for every Aaron Lennon or Gareth Bale that we unearth, there is also likely to be an Adel Taarabt and a Giovani Dos Santos, who fail to fulfil anywhere near their potential.
