Video: Journalist raises question marks over Spence, Perisic and Bissouma signings


According to talkSPORT journalist Alex Crook, there are some major question marks over some of Tottenham’s summer signings.

Spurs have been proactive so far in the summer transfer window, managing to bring in six players through the door in the form of Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster, Yves Bissouma, Richarlison, and Clement Lenglet and Djed Spence.

Some pundits have suggested that on the back of Tottenham’s transfer activity so far, they could challenge Liverpool and Manchester City for the title next season (Metro).

However, Crook has revealed he is not sold on some of the new faces who have arrived at the north London club.

He suggested that there are doubts over Spence’s attitude and questioned whether Perisic will be able to adapt to English football.

Watch what Crook said about Tottenham’s singings on talkSPORT:

Spurs Web Opinion

This transfer window for Spurs has been more about improving the squad than the starting eleven. However, having said that the likes of Bissouma, Perisic and arguably Spence will likely improve our starting eleven.

I also believe that the increased competition for places could bring the best out of players like Hojbjerg, Kulusevski, Davies and Sessegnon. However, I do agree with Crook that talks of a title challenge are slightly premature, given the levels that City and Liverpool have reached over recent seasons.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, last summer 90% of the pundits and footballing journalists were set on Harry joining City……which was wrong.
    Journalists should report the news, we use to have mystic Meg for opinions, maybe Alex should read up on her autobiography for tips.
    Spurs were the only team in the top 5 to take points from both City & Liverpool last season (home & away) we will once again compete for the champions league, this year.
    Conte is only strengthening his squad to compete in all competitions, no one at Spurs have said anything about the league and vieing to win except the press.
