The Daily Star journalist, Paul Brown, claims that there is no need for Spurs fans to panic as big signing is yet to come. According to Brown, the club may take a short pause after three deals already completed, but this does not mean that Paratici and co are not ready to spend.
Tottenham have always been slow starters in transfer windows. For example, their January signings were made only on the deadline day while the board reportedly missed on Adama Traore and Luis Diaz along the way.
Antonio Conte, back in the day, expressed an opinion that entering the final third of the season the club had technically become weaker as four Tottenham players, for various reasons, departed against the two newcomers. Luckily, the latter two have been marvelous in the Spurs shirt so far.
At the same time, Levy did understand the Conte’s comments properly as during the June alone there are already three signings completed and just 25million spent.
This also implies that the big-money signing must happen as the club wants to compete at the same level as other PL giants.
Paul Brown told GIVEMESPORT:
“You’re seeing some of these lesser deals happen now because they’re trying to keep their powder dry a little bit and get bodies in, in case they have to make a big-money signing in that area of the pitch.”
To be competitive on all fronts, a club like Tottenham must possess immediate impact players on the bench. Counting on that Kane and Son keep 100% of their best form during 50+ matches is a poor strategy. Not to say, depending on the Tottenham’s progress during the season, the number of games can be even higher. For example, our London rivals, Chelsea, featured in 63 games during the season 2021/22.
