After the Trix ITK saying 1or 2 Midfielders and a LB and Herc saying whispers of Poch has a preference for 3 at the back and Rose would struggle to pass a medical I wondered if,

Poch has decided to use Dier at CB next season (he might be more willing as he’d have 2 years to nail down an England spot in that position before euros).

With 3 at the back a more attacking left wing back may be required which would seem to fit Sessegnon well, Davies could be the left of the back 3 if Jan is out/rested.

The 2 midfielder purchases could then cover Dier and maybe a sissoko upgrade (I don’t want to contemplate losing Dembele right now!)
Where did he say he preferred a back 3 what did he say mate?

I have zero idea of who Poch wants and what our plans are but this is the most defining transfer window we've ever had. Sign a few more squad players and essentially we're saying that where we are now is the extent of our ambition, on the other hand a couple of marquee signings means that Levy really does want to challenge for the title. He's no dope and of course he knows that but I'm fascinated to see our line up early next season.

We don't need depth we need quality, an improvement on what we already have.

I'd be happy with Lascelles, he's an excellent defender, while Jay Rod might make some sense if we'e looking for a homegrown option to take on the Janssen/Llorente role of barely playing. Personally, I have no interest in us signing Evans because of his age and better options being available, or Zaha who's is ok, but won't offer value for his mooted price.

If De Ligt and Sessegnon happen though, and that 120m figure is true, there's most of it gone right there.
It100% has to be quality over quantity this window. If we sign another CB or Am we might as well sell Foyth and one of Lamela/Son/Lucas.

Dembele, rose and toby out in one window?? We will be sort of experienced player that is for sure. Again inexperienced will show up during the crunch moment of the season or in ucl knockout round ...

Tottenham want Manchester United ace Sam Johnstone as Hugo Lloris back-up next season

Spurs are planning for the possibility of Michel Vorm leaving to look for first-team football next season

SAM JOHNSTONE is on Tottenham’s radar as back-up to Hugo Lloris next season.

Spurs are looking at goalkeeper options in case Michel Vorm looks for regular first-team football.

Johnstone has impressed after being loaned to Aston Villa by Manchester United, with his contract running out in the summer.

The 25-year-old will be available on a free transfer after SEVEN loan clubs during his time at Old Trafford.

He has been a regular at Villa Park this season but Premier League football is not guaranteed.

And he will face a massive dilemma if the chance to be No2 at a big club comes up.

Vorm, 34, has been understudy to Lloris during his four years at Spurs.

The Dutchman is also out of contract in the summer and can leave without a fee if no extension is agreed.

Especially of we get De Ligt which I really doubt, I'm sure we're interested but so is every other club in the world, with the big teams that can just throw cash at him I doubt we'll get him.

Foyth has been good and does need to play more

Makes sense being HG & free but his passing is worse than Hugo

We have to sign an absolute top quality centre-midfielder this summer if Dembele is leaving. Some would say we needed to anyway, but now if it happens there is no doubt the replacement has to be really really good. Not someone who hasn't played well for 2 seasons like Andre Gomes.

That's fine.

If he isn't fit enough to play for us anymore then better to go than just
But he’s had a good run of games recently and has played a big part in our unbeaten run ( before city match) would be a strange decision to let him go imo as I believe he has at least another good season in him

Yeah he's been good but it seems it's his call purely based on his fitness. Who can say, maybes he's even playing through pain right now, or ledley king like in training.

A more sedate approach to training and match days probably more appealing

I know some will say they are largely happy with the squad and that "we don't need much." With increased revenue & player sales we really have an opportunity this season to have a great summer window.
I don't see why it can't be both quality and quantity with the proposed outgoings.

This is still a wishlist thread, right?

In:
Sess/De Ligt/De Jong/J-Rod/Pereira/Kurzawa (or better like Telles)/Maddison = £265?

Out:
Janssen/Nkoudou/Sissoko/Llorente/Rose/Toby/Dembele/Onomah/CCV/Vorm/AURIER! = £240-250ish?

For around £15-£25m we can seriously upgrade the squad.

Tottenham transfer plans in motion with Mauricio Pochettino set to spend £120m

It is understood that Jamaal Lascelles and Ajax’s Matthijs de Ligt have particularly impressed the club while Wilfried Zaha, Jonny Evans and Jay Rodriguez are also being considered

Mauricio Pochettino will have a budget of at least £120m to upgrade his Tottenham Hotspur team in the summer, as he primarily seeks players in central defence and attacking positions.

That amount will likely be boosted by the possible sale of Toby Alderweireld, creating that need for another centre-half, but the Argentine’s plans are already set and in motion.

It is understood that Newcastle United’s Jamaal Lascelles and Ajax’s 18-year-old Matthijs de Ligt - a former teammate of Davinson Sanchez - have particularly impressed the club for the defensive positions.

Pochettino also wants to give more unpredictability and depth to his attack, with Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha a long-time target. The relegation of West Brom could also provide opportunities for deals as Jonny Evans is set to leave for a cut-price deal, and Pochettino has previously worked with Jay Rodriguez at Southampton. The latter’s injury record may be an issue, however.

Spurs are meanwhile said to be relaxed about Mousa Dembele’s contract situation and the midfield position, and there remains the possibility that he will extend for another year although China is also an option.
If we're still after that quality of players then we really haven't pushed on. We shouldn't be competing with the West Hams of this world for signings. Rodriguez and Evans just screams mediocrity.

Of course it’d be sad to see Dembele go but being pragmatic, he only has 1 or 2 more seasons in him at most, and his fitness/injury concerns mean he can’t play a full season for us now as it is.

If he feels it’s time to step back then fair play to him, he’s been a great servant to the club.

By him sticking around and us not signing a replacement this season, we’re only prolonging the inevitable and increasing the risk of being left short if his game time capabilities reduce further.
