Why Tottenham need to be extra careful about making changes to the team once the winter window opens



Why Tottenham should be careful ahead of the January transfer window

Things just don’t seem to be going right for Tottenham at the moment. The results and performances have been poor, while the injuries keep piling up.

Hugo Lloris is out until 2020, while several of our players have missed parts of the season with problems. Son Heung-min and Juan Foyth were suspended for the start of the season, and that didn’t help our cause too.

However, we kept hold of several players during the summer who wanted to leave. Danny Rose and Christian Eriksen sought greener pastures but could not clinch an exit. Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld are free agents at the end of the season and have struggled so far.

There are a lot of questions regarding Spurs’ transfers despite Mauricio Pochettino landing four signings in the summer.

The Argentine hinted at making moves in January to fix the problem after the Carabao Cup exit at the hands of Colchester (h/t

However, the winter window cannot guarantee a turnaround in fortunes and Pochettino has to be wary of any moves made.

Risky business for Tottenham

Tottenham made four summer signings this season after going more than a year without adding any new faces in the team.

The team’s choices were understandable as all four players were below the age of 23 and have immense potential. However, the recruitment hasn’t worked out all that well with Ryan Sessegnon not featuring even once for the club.

Giovani Lo Celso also picked up an injury in the previous international break and hasn’t played since. Tanguy Ndombele also had his problems while Jack Clarke hasn’t started a league game at Leeds United.

Tottenham also spent a huge sum to land Ndombele, and making moves in the winter window carries a lot of risk. Pochettino has to pick the right player to solve several issues at Tottenham, and more importantly, they should not be overpriced.

Further, the Argentine has seen some dud signings during his spell at the club, and the same mistakes cannot be repeated in the winter window.

Lucas Moura is one winter signing who has come good, but we only got to see the best of him after six months of acclimatizing to the team.

Tottenham could also decide to sell some of their unwanted stars in January, and that carries more problems too. Daniel Levy is one of the best negotiators in the game but the chairman has to make some tough calls in January.

Lucas Moura

Some of the blame goes to the board as three world-class stars should not be on the final year of their deals. Tottenham should also be careful with the finances after the completion of the new stadium. Spurs need to play better football and cannot miss out on Champions League football next season.
