In recent years we’ve become used to Tottenham making late moves in the transfer market and leaving it right until the last moment before getting new players into the club. Sometimes it works – as in the case of Rafael van der Vaart but when the club tried to sign Blackpool’s Charlie Adam in January 2011, they literally ran out of time.
Move forward to 2012 and Harry brought Ryan Nelsen and Louis Saha to the club – signings that were met with mixed receptions.
Transfer rumours at this time of the year are nothing new but there have been some reports of advanced talks in some areas – most notably with Jan Vertonghen and Loic Remy. Euro 2012 could play a part in Remy’s case too – does he want to secure his future before he gets on the plane?
We will only know the answer as the summer unfolds but maybe Spurs will, for once, get their squad in place for the new season before it actually starts.
