Spurs transfer news as Teddy Sheringham backs one player already at Tottenhm Hotspur Stadium to shine under Ange Postecoglou and put his previous troubles behind him
Tottenham have spent more than £57million on three new signings already this summer, but there is still work to be done in the transfer market.
Spurs have signed James Maddison in a £40million deal from Leicester City and goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario in a £17.2million deal from Empoli. Manor Solomon has also joined the club on a free transfer from Shakhtar Donetsk following the end of his loan spell at Fulham.Their spending will not end there though. Spurs are in the market for a central defender or two, having shipped 63 goals in the Premier League last season. New head coach Ange Postecoglou made no secret of his desire to bring in reinforcements during a press conference ahead of facing Lion City Sailors in Singapore on Wednesday.
When asked if he was frustrsated by the lack of defensive signings, Postecoglou said: “No, it’s just the football world, mate. I’ve been in it a long time. I wish it could be like my wife with Amazon where we get deliveries everyday mate. But I can’t put one in and get it the next day, unfortunately. It’s just the way of the football world so no frustration, just keep working hard to try and get it done.”With Maddison arriving, Spurs have reinforced the midfield significantly, with players returning to the club from loan spells in that area too. The likes of Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso will both be looking to make a mark under a new head coach, and Ndombele could be like a new signing for Spurs.
That’s the view of Spurs legend Teddy Sheringham, who expects the mercurial Frenchman to play a big part in Postecoglou’s squad this coming season. Speaking to Lord Ping he said: “I expect Ndombele to do well under Ange. I think it’ll be like a new signing without spending money, bringing him back into the fold. Hopefully he comes back with a different mentality and wants to show that he’s ready to play for Tottenham. I think he could. I think he could have a big impact at the club this season.”
