Following an indifferent start to the campaign for Tottenham, losing three out of their four league games and talisman Harry Kane yet to score in the Premier League this season, many Tottenham fans have expressed their frustration over the lack of forward players signed this summer.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side being linked to an array of attacking players this summer including the likes of Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic, Sampdoria playmaker Mikkel Damsgaard, long-term Arsenal target and Lyon midlielder Houssem Aouar, Roma captain Lorenzo Pellegrini and Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez.
However, the only attacking option Daniel Levy utlimately signed this summer was Sevilla winger Bryan Gil, with Erik Lamela going in the opposite direction after eight years spent at the North London club.
And now, in a post for The Athletic on Friday morning, Charlie Eccleshare has shed some light on Tottenham’s January transfer plans, revealing that the club will try and sign an attacking player in January to add competition to the likes of Harry Kane, Son Heung-Min, Steven Bergwin Lucas Moura and Dele Ali as Santo’s primary attacking options at his disposal.
This has subsequently seen Spurs fans take to Twitter.
What did Spurs fans make of Charlie Ecclestone’s transfer update?
“We need a striker that can actually score goals”
“Bring Kessie or gravenberch + kulusevki + vlahovic”
“Creative rw like Kulusevski or a creative midfielder like Kamada or Aouar”
“Need at least 5/6 players. One attacker is laughable”
“PELLEGRINI and a striker thank you, I would settle for Schick”
“Someone that can start out wide/rotate with Lucas on the RW. A Greenwood type”
“Really great news”
“I won’t be surprised if we don’t go in for anyone, that’s how we week in January. Maybe it’s different with Paratici but January is always quiet. The odd exit and contract signed but no incomings.”
“Please I beg for Adama please Levy”
“We are back”
Interestingly, Spurs fans seem to be in agreeance that the club should look to sign multiple attacking players this coming transfer window given star striker and Kane’s difficult start to the campaign.
However, with City unwilling to match Tottenham and Levy’s £150 million valuation of Kane, the Spurs talisman ultimately stayed at the North London club this summer but appears to still be suffering after failing to secure a move to Pep Guardiola’s side this summer.
However, if Tottenham are to be successful in ending their 14 year spell without a trophy and fight for Champions League qualification this season, their is no denying that a in-form Harry Kane will be instrumental to their chances.
