Harry Kane’s potential transfer saga continues to dominate the headlines, with Bayern Munich reportedly preparing an improved offer of £70 million. If Kane is to leave Tottenham, a fee starting with a nine would be more appropriate for a player of his caliber with one year left on his contract.
Meanwhile, the club’s pre-season tour to Thailand raises concerns among fans. The lack of new center-back signings is troubling, as this has been an issue for Tottenham for a while now – yes, there have been links here and there but when are we going to make it happen? the pre-season is about but there…
To be precise, Tottenham are resolute in their quest to fortify their defensive line and have set their sights on two promising talents: Edmond Tapsoba from Bayer Leverkusen and Micky van de Ven from Wolfsburg. Tapsoba is apparently the primary target, though that hefty fee demand of Leverkusen is proving to be a stumbling block.
Multiple Spurs faithful have been speaking about the transfer window being strategically planned, ensuring new signings join the tour to build chemistry and understand the team’s style of play. However, with only three working days remaining before the tour the chances of completing signings seem slim to me.
Tottenham’s failure to secure center-back reinforcements early in the window raises questions about the club’s management and planning.
The recent pursuit of Mikkel Damsgaard and Florian Neuhaus from the Bundesliga has yet to yield any concrete bids, leaving fans frustrated with the lack of progress. While the signings of Pierluigi Gollini and James Maddison have been positive, they won’t solve Tottenham’s long-standing defensive issues.
Furthermore, there have been reports of Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) expressing interest in signing goalkeeper Hugo Lloris. With Lloris likely to lose his starting spot to Pierluigi Gollini, PSG could offer him an enticing opportunity. If Lloris departs, it remains to be seen whether Tottenham will receive a transfer fee or terminate his contract. Regardless, Lloris has had a successful career at the club, captaining the team and even winning a World Cup with France.
