Fan rant of the day: Tottenham moving for four talents from English leagues is the right transfer decision

Tottenham opinion: Tottenham’s plans to sign four players from across the English leagues is the right decision 

Tottenham are being linked with moves for five players from across three leagues, according to the Daily Mail.

Spurs haven’t signed a player since Lucas Moura joined us more than a year ago, but we were more than willing to sell Mousa Dembele to Guangzhou R&F.

This has left us with a lot of work to do in terms of transfers, and the Daily Mail adds that we could lose Christian Eriksen and Toby Alderweireld due to their contract issues.

More attacking power for Spurs

Tottenham are being linked with Aleksandar Mitrovic, Jarrod Bowen, Carlos Soler, Jack Grealish and Wilfried Zaha, according to the Mail.

Looking at that list, it would be incredible if we could sign even three out of the five. Bowen and Grealish are up and coming through the Championship and should develop into quality footballers under Mauricio Pochettino.

The Argentine has a history of developing talent, especially England talent, during his time in the country and the pair could turn out to be another example of Dele Alli.

Bowen has been on fire for Hull City in the Championship while we failed to land Grealish in the summer (h/t Daily Mail).

The Aston Villa star even scored in the derby against Birmingham City after being knocked down by a supporter.

Grealish has the potential to become quality in the coming years, and it will be interesting to see if Villa are willing to let go of their player should they miss out on promotion.

Premier League talent for Spurs

Zaha has been linked with Tottenham for ages, and he would make an excellent signing too. The Ivorian has the Premier League experience and is one of the most creative players.

The Crystal Palace man would not come on the cheap, but Spurs need to show intent in the market. Zaha has also played for a big club like Manchester United earlier but that move didn’t work out. However, with Pochettino at the helm, the Palace star should have a better time of it here.

Aleksandar Mitrovic

Mitrovic is one that catches the eye more than others. The Serbian seems set to suffer relegation with  Fulham and would be a great back-up to Harry Kane.

The Serbian is more mobile that Fernando Llorente and is great in the air too, giving us a different option up front.

Soler could be a smart signing from Pochettino, however, some of our imports from the other leagues haven’t worked out well.

The right signings for Spurs

Pochettino has tried his hand in bringing talent from overseas and has seen mixed results. Georges-Kevin Nkoudou and Vincent Janssen stick out like sore thumbs while we have only seen glimpses of the quality that Lucas Moura and Serge Aurier possess.

Compare that to what he has done with the British talent at the club, and it provides a better reading. Eric Dier, Danny Rose and Harry Winks have all grown under Pochettino while Dele Alli and Kane are hitting new heights every year.

Bowen and Grealish are a pair of quality youth players coming through the system while Zaha and Mitrovic know the Premier League well.

They might not be in the top bracket of players we could get, but they have potential and could cost less than some of the other big names.

Spurs are moving into a new stadium, and that will affect our finances. We cannot battle with the likes of Manchester City or Real Madrid in terms of bidding for players, and have to be smart in the transfer market.

The aim for Spurs has to be finishing in the top four. Champions League football not only brings in revenue but also makes the club and even more attractive proposition to transfer targets.
