According to journalist Alasdair Gold, Tottenham could be making another signing after completing a deal for Pedro Porro.
The Spanish defender, who has signed from Girona, looks set to be the club’s second signing of the summer, but there could be more to come.
Spurs have been looking to bring in a wing-back and an attacker, and with the additions of Porro and Danjuma, it seems that those areas have been addressed.
However, Gold suggests that the club could now be looking to bring in a midfielder, a centre-back, or even a forward depending on what happens to Bryan Gil, who is reportedly attracting interest from other clubs.
Gold shared what he knows.
“One thing, from what I understand Spurs aren’t necessarily going to stop with Porro. The priorities were a wing-back and an attacker and that’s Danjuma and Porro which are hopefully going to be done,” Gold said.
“If an opportunity arises for them to push any of their summer plans forward, and we know the summer plans were a centre-back or a midfielder or maybe even another attacker depending on what happens with Gil, they’ll take that opportunity. It’s one to keep an eye out for in the last few days.”
ALL THREE OPTIONS OPEN
it’s no surprise that Tottenham are looking to strengthen their defence. Clement Lenglet, who has been on loan from Barcelona, is set to return to the Catalan club and Ben Davies, who is a converted left-back, has been playing out of position at centre-back. Adding a quality defender to the squad would be a wise move for Conte and Spurs.
Furthermore, the midfield could also use some reinforcements, perhaps with an anchor man to shield the defence and provide the midfield with more control or an attacking midfielder to carve out more chances.
Meanwhile, it would also be in Spurs’ interest to add more attacking depth if Gil does go, but, saying that, it’s not a pressing issue, especially after Danjuma signed.
It’s clear that Tottenham are looking to make some key signings. They will be looking to build a squad that can compete for top honours and hopefully get them a top four finish come the end of the season.
