In what has been a season filled with ups and downs and marred by inconsistency, many Spurs fans have begun anticipating potential entries into the summer transfer window.
Many are eager to see how Conte’s first ‘big’ window plays out with the help of transfer assistant Fabio Paratici and the ‘support’ of Daniel Levy.
Taking these factors into account, here are 4 players I think Tottenham should be looking to sign this summer:
Stefan De Vrij
For me, this one is a no-brainer given the Dutchman’s history with Antonio Conte at Inter and the fact that he is experienced and has a silverware in the past. That kind of mentality, mixed with experience, is sure to help Tottenham’s problems at the back.
Although many were impressed with the performances of Eric Dier and Cristian Romero, I believe an upgrade is needed on the left side of the back three which would see Ben Davies lose his place in the starting XI but certainly not in the team.
In my opinion, the acquisition of a new right-back is essential for the performance of the team in the future. Emerson Royal has been a bit hit and miss in his debut season in N17, with the young Brazilian yet to live up to Spurs fans’ expectations.
Meanwhile, Matt Doherty has looked like a different player in recent weeks, putting in strong performances against Leeds, Everton and West Ham.
I think the introduction of Tariq Lamptey would bring much-needed consistency to the team in a position that hasn’t really been replaced since Kyle Walker’s departure in 2017.
Spurs are crying out for another creative midfielder to challenge Rodrigo Bentancur next season, and I think Soler is the right man for the job.
Although I would still start the Uruguayan after brilliant performances so far, Soler would prove to be a smart signing for Spurs de Conte and would certainly benefit the team.
The Spaniard has provided 9 goals and 5 assists for Valencia in 23 games (TransferMarkt) and with the potential prospect of UCL football, that could be enough to steer Soler away from Spain and lucratively move up to N17.
It wouldn’t be a Spurs transfer window if we didn’t mention a striker, would it? For years, Tottenham have tried to provide backup for Harry Kane with Vincent Janssen, Fernando Llorente and Carlos Vinicius to name but a few.
The Italian, Gianluca Scamacca, has looked brilliant for Sassuolo in Serie A this season, scoring 13 goals with his team sitting 9and in the Italian first division (TransferMarkt). Plus, the fact that he’s only 23 suggests there’s plenty of room for improvement, and with Harry Kane’s guidance, Scamacca will only get better.
