Speaking on the latest edition of The View From The Lane podcast, Jack Pitt-Brooke has been talking about all things relating to Tottenham Hotspur.
One of the main talking points on the podcast was the upcoming transfer window in January and potential moves the north London club could look to make.
Do you expect Spurs to spend in January?
Over the summer, Spurs were linked with Adama Traore, but ultimately failed to secure the services of a creative playmaker, with Tanguy Ndombele remaining a Tottenham player despite speculation over his future.
Meanwhile, Tottenham have struggled in front of goal this season, with just six goals in the Premier League to show for in their seven games played.
Discussing the club’s plans ahead of the January transfer window, Pitt-Brooke had the following to say on what position Fabio Paratici will be focusing on.
“I think if you look at what Spurs are interested in this January – they’re looking for another attacking player, like a kind of goal threat in that front three, which I think suggests that the feeling in the club is that this is where they missed out the most.
“You know, they didn’t get Adama Traore and they could do with somebody else who scores goals in that frontline. I think it has to be a forward.”
TIF Thoughts on January for Spurs…
We feel Tottenham have been missing a creative spark in their midfield since they sold Christian Eriksen to Inter last January.
The Danish midfielder racked up 69 goals and 90 assists during his time at Spurs, and since arriving in north London, Giovani Lo Celso (13) and Tanguy Ndombele (17) have only been able to tally up 30 goals and assists between them.
Given Harry Kane is yet to get off the mark in the Premier League this season, we feel Fabio Paratici needs to be targetting a playmaker who can slot into the role Eriksen had at the club in creating big opportunities.
