Tottenham Hotspur had a ‘successful’ season. Now, they look to strengthen their squad to go one better than they managed previous season

Tottenham conducted no transfer business in the previous two transfer windows. Yet, they managed a top 4 finish in the league, and a very respectable 2nd place in the UEFA Champions League.

The Lilywhites debuted their shiny stadium late into the 2018/19 season. Now, they look to build on what is a promising squad of players.

The Spurs chairman, Daniel Levy, has been stringent in transfer business in the past. Tottenham has brought in young and promising players only on a low budget.

But with the stadium issues behind them, the main man is ready to back manager, Mauricio Pochettino. The manage is now looking to “splash the cash” in the summer on big signings.

Tottenham Hotspur lodged a bid of around €70 million for promising Real Betis midfielder, Giovani Lo Celso. There were plans to bring in Tanguy Ndombele of Lyon as well. There is nothing to suggest Spurs will not go back with a better offer.

But FourFourTwo understand Tottenham failed in their pursuit of the players.

Tottenham Hotspur are now looking elsewhere to shore up the holes in their squad.

One of the names is Fulham defender Ryan Sessegnon. The player was relegated to the Championship with Fulham, and may look to join a Premier League club.

Another target is Celta Vigo forward Maxi Gomez. He had a decent 2018/19 season in La Liga, bagging 13 goals and 5 assists.

But the ins are not the only transfer talk at Tottenham. Certain players may be sold to sanction the players coming in.

Fernando Llorente looks set to depart at the end of his contract. Some first team starters like Victor Wanyama and Kieran Trippier also have doubtful futures.

Spurs will look to hold on to Christien Eriksen and Toby Alderweireld, who are on short contract timers.
