Tottenham transfer news
Latest Tottenham Hotspurs Transfers News
Fans who have been watching the team will have seen how they have struggled with injuries this season, and it has highlighted their lack of depth compared to the other teams inside the top six. Tottenham have been regularly in the top for positions for the past few seasons now, but if they want to take another step up and contend for a league title then they need to add depth.
One area where Tottenham will more than likely need to strengthen is in attack as it seems likely that Fernando Llorente will be leaving the club this summer. That leaves just Harry Kane as the only out and out striker at the club, and he will need some help.
Tottenham and many other Premier League clubs have been watching Che Adams of Birmingham City with interest. The 22 year old has scored over 20 goals already in the Championship this season, and his instinct in front of goal, and his ability to be in the right place and the right time is certainly drawing interest from the biggest and best teams in the top flight.
We have seen Tottenham successfully sign young British players from the leagues below them and develop them into genuine Premier League players, and that can only be a positive for them if they attempt to sign Adams. He will see what they have done with other players, and that will give him a path to follow during his career.
The emergence of Harry Winks has saved Tottenham from a big crisis in the middle of midfield this season, and this is something they have to address this summer. Injuries to Eric Dier and Victor Wanyama have shown how light they are in this position, which is one of the most important on the field.
Winning the midfield battle is key to winning many games, and Tottenham simply have to find a player out there who can come in and boss the midfield for them. This is the one area of their starting eleven that they could improve on, and signing a top quality central midfielder to start games should be their main priority and where most of their money goes this summer.
The move would push someone like Dier or Wanyama further down the pecking order, and instead of relying on them to be in the starting line up they would become depth players, which is more suited to their ability.
Tottenham have a decision to make this summer, are they happy being a top four club, or do they want to move to the next level? To make that move, they need to add a top quality central midfielder to their squad.
