Paul Robinson warns Jose Mourinho against making signings amidst Christian Eriksen, Nicolas Gonzalez links
Tottenham Hotspur have recently been linked with winger Nicolas Gonzalez and midfielder Christian Eriksen, but Paul Robinson thinks Jose Mourinho does not need new additions to the squad at the moment.
Speaking to Football Insider (h/t football.london), the former Tottenham goalkeeper stated that he thinks Tottenham do not need to sign anyone in January. Robinson added that the Tottenham squad is good enough as it is.
“I don’t think they need anyone. They are in a position now where they’ve got a really strong squad.”
Robinson does say that the squad can be improved. But, the club would have to spend a “really big fee” to make it happen. (h/t football.london)
The Lilywhites are linked with a move for VfB Stuttgart winger Nicolas Gonzalez. Spurs have already held preliminary talks for a transfer and face competition for him from Borussia Dortmund.
No transfers needed?
However, the former England stopper does not think that Spurs need a winger. He says that the way Tottenham play, an out-and-out winger should not be a priority for the team in the transfer market.
“The way that they play, they rarely use an out-and-out winger…. So for that to be a priority or to be pushed through, I’d be surprised.”
Apart from the Argentinean, Spurs are also linked with a move for former Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen. Inter Milan have made the 28-year-old available for transfer this month after a difficult year for him in Italy. (h/t football.london)
What Robinson says does make sense, at least on paper. Spurs have a wealth of attacking options as well as creative players.

However, the club could stand to benefit from adding quality players in this window. Adding a player like Gonzalez would give the team more options upfront and a possible plan B in games.
