Tottenham’s summer transfer targets

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…


Kieran Trippier

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.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. I've just read that Loic Remy has been given permission to talk to Wet Sham. I think he would be a perfect No 10 to HK.

    As for the writers wish list, I was a bit disturbed to see how he saw them fitting in. There are better players than Bentaleb, but he is only 20 years old with about six years of improvement ahead of him. Why would we want to risk losing him.

    Fazio was also mentioned. At first he looked like a massive liability, but as the season has gone on, he has improved dramatically. I'd give him another year, where he should be a very reliable squad player.

    Really? I thought the opposite about Fazio, when he arrived nothing got past him in the air, his head was on the end of everything, even if he was a bit slow on the ground. In the second half of his season he disappeared completely as a defensive presence in my book and was at fault for frequently leaving free headers totally unopposed (hence benteke’s 1-0 winner).
