On the subject of the summer transfer window and Spurs’ potential business plans for it, Bridge had this to say on the matter. (37.37) (38.46)

He said: “I think they’re going to strengthen everywhere, I really do.

“Tottenham’s team on Thursday in the Europa League, there are some players you wonder if they’ve got a chance of coming back from this.

“I can see there being, once again, many changes with Spurs – incomings and outgoings – but in terms of outgoings, because Daniel Levy always likes to get his money back on players he’s signed, this could be the summer where they sometimes will have to potentially cut their losses on certain players who just don’t quite cut it at Tottenham and in the Premier League.”

Jose Mourinho’s side are currently sat in sixth place in the Premier League table on 48 points with just nine games left to play in this current campaign (per BBC Sport).

TIF Thoughts on Michael Bridge’s comments on Spurs’ summer transfer window…

The previous summer transfer window saw the north London club bring in players such as Gareth Bale, Sergio Reguilon, Vinicius, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Joe Hart, Joe Rodon and Matt Doherty (per Transfermarkt).

Do you think Spurs need to sell some players this summer?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Given how many players Spurs brought in last summer, it’s understandable why Bridge has suggested that the club could look to cut their ties with some players before trying to bring any new ones in this summer amid their sub-par performances this term as Daniel Levy may feel he has not got his money’s worth.

In our view, if Spurs are aiming to finish in the top four next season, they will need to sign some quality players in the upcoming window that can fit into Mourinho’s squad and help progress the team forward to where they want to be.
