Opposition strengthening, not much to be concerned about

TRANSFER TALK


The following list of transfers is an extract from the Guardian article which you can read in full at the link below. I produce it because there were the usual plastic fans on Twitter moaning ho everyone else is strengthening and we are not, which isn't true, but when has the truth ever stopped them.

If you actually go through and look at who people have signed, there isn't much to be concerned about.

Tottenham Hotspur

Spurs were always building from a strong base and the additions of Vincent Janssen and Victor Wanyama have served to add more strength in depth. Georges-Kévin Nkoudou, whose move from Marseille seemed to drag on for weeks, could be an intriguing addition. Mauricio Pochettino will hope Moussa Sissoko, a late £30m purchase from Newcastle from under the noses of Everton, can find the form he showed with France at Euro 2016 rather than return to the up-and-down form he showed at St James’ Park. Interest in Wilfried Zaha seemed half-hearted at the price offered.
