The new Premiership campaign is less than three weeks away and although some fans are still impatient over the lack of a new striker at White Hart Lane, it’s actually quite unusual for Spurs to have tied up two major transfers before July is out.
The possibility of adding to our list of failed deadline day deals is therefore fading but for those still feeling a little anxious, Head Coach Andre Villas-Boas has some reassuring words.
“We will continue to do our market and we have not stopped yet, for sure,” Villas-Boas said.
No names or positions were mentioned in the interview but a much needed swoop for a striker is likely with reports continuing to link the club with an improved offer for Valencia’s Roberto Soldado. Club President Amadeo Salvo is keen for those that have expressed an interest to declare their intentions.
“The message we have to give is that we need tranquillity,” Salvo said.
“If Soldado leaves in the near future, near to the end of the transfer window, we will have to find a replacement.”
The transfer fee in question may end Tottenham’s quest however and Salvo has said that the cash strapped club won’t let their financial situation be taken advantage of.
So we welcome our new recruits and the question after AVB’s comments is ‘who’s next?’
