Sky Sports News reporter and Tottenham Hotspur fan Michael Bridge still feels that the club must add more this summer.

The Lilywhites have already spent an initial £87.5m this off-season, with Ivan Perisic and Fraser Forster first through the door on free transfers before Yves Bissouma was brought in for £25m upfront.

Antonio Conte bolstered his forward line with the £60m signing of Richarlison and then filled in key positions at the back with Clement Lenglet and Djed Spence coming in. However, Bridge is of the impression that they still need further additions and hinted that there could yet be more to come.

Taking part in Football Daily’s ‘Transfer Talk’ on Twitter Spaces, Bridge said: “I think it’s been a very decent window so far, but if the window shut tomorrow and Tottenham didn’t do any business, they still haven’t really done enough, in my opinion.

“I think they need a little bit more creativity. I think they need someone in that attacking midfield area, but I think that they will address that, ultimately.

“I think there’s two stages to this window. There’s getting big business done early then maybe seeing what’s about, and then maybe let’s see who sells and who buys with a couple of weeks of the window remaining.”

TIF Thoughts on Spurs…

Is this Tottenham's best ever window?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Transfer expert Dean Jones previously told GiveMeSport that Fabio Paratici could swoop to bring in a ‘luxury’ addition towards the back end of the window.

The Evening Standard has stated that Spurs may still look to add a creative player, and FA Registered Intermediary Paul O’Keefe believes that the club are targeting James Maddison.

He would certainly fill the creative void that Bridge is concerned about, having scored 18 goals and produced a further 12 assists last season and is most definitely more attacking than the club’s current options in centre-midfield – particularly when you consider Giovani Lo Celso and Tanguy Ndombele are seemingly out of favour in north London.

Conte hasn’t tended to use a No 10 during his time in N17, largely operating with a 3-4-2-1 formation, but during his tenure at Inter, he did favour a 3-5-2 system, and that may appeal to the 25-year-old.

However, perhaps it will take a couple of further outgoings to occur before Tottenham look to make another addition, but it is definitely something to watch over the coming weeks.
