With the Premier League 60 days from return, silly season is in full flight. Plenty of teams; including Spurs, have already started strengthening their squads. After a full year in the hot-seat this is a crucial window for Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham masterplan. In this two-part article, I’ll first look at players who could improve Spurs defence and centre-midfield…
Trippier ranks very high on the likeliness scale I feel. He’s relatively young, yet by no means raw. Premier league proven, and while he may not add the same dynamism as Walker (or even Yedlin), he does provide consistency. Underwhelming? Yes, but also a smart buy. Trippier’s addition could not only improve our first team by his presence, but he might even cause a ‘Ben Davies’ affect, in the sense that he could give Kyle Walker the kick in the ass he needs to hit top form! The result either way is a less shaky defence! A likely price of £3.5mil is probably worth taking a punt on.
