Tottenham Hotspur are set for a huge overhaul at the end of this season in order to raise funds and build for next season. Many players have been drafted in over the past couple of seasons but many of them have proved to be failures in their attempts to increase the club’s fortunes on the pitch.
The sale of Gareth Bale was a huge blow to the club but financially, they found themselves in an excellent position to bring in new blood. Big things were expected of their signings, especially Roberto Soldado, Erik Lamela, and Paulinho, who were all high profile names in their national teams and they were all in excellent form.
Soldado was a £26 million acquisition from Valencia, Lamela cost Spurs £30 million and was expected to fill the void left by Bale, with Paulinho set to be the dictator in midfield as he was a regarded as one of the brightest talents coming out of Brazil’s star studded squad.
All three players can’t get in the Spurs first eleven and the money seems wasted in a lot of the supporter’s eyes, with many calling for them to be offloaded after almost two failed campaigns. Other players set for the exit door are captain, Younès Kaboul, Emanuel Adebayor, Ben Davies, Étienne Capoue, Benjamin Stambouli, Federico Fazio, Vlad Chiricheş, Moussa Dembélé and Michel Vorm. All these players look surplus to requirements at White Hart Lane as does Franco Baldini, the clubs’ Technical Director who is expected to leave in the summer.
Mauricio Pochettino’s reign at Spurs has been promising with signs of progress in the team certainly showing in many games this season. Judged on their first eleven you can see how well they’ve done compared to the other big name clubs in the division, so the Argentine boss must take a lot of credit for the philosophies he is preaching.
He is expected to bring in a number of new faces in the next transfer window and he will be looking to mould his team to his preferred style of play so potentially, Spurs fans have a lot to look forward to. Players such as Morgan Schneiderlin, Alexandre Lacazette, Kevin Wimmer, Kevin Mirallas, Mateo Musacchio and many others have been talked about in recent times as the North London club looks for a revamp in the following months. #Football
