Potential signings??

Current rumours are surrounding two players: Franck Kessie of AC Milan (on loan from Atalanta) who is a DM similar to Kante but not yet quite as good. Very powerful athlete with a good touch and like Dembele, extremely difficult to knock off the ball.

The second player is a more familiar name, Timo Werner of RB Leipzig, who is Equally good as a striker or playing just off the main striker. Has a good record with 13 goals so far this season.

Reports suggest we are in talks with AC Milan over Kessie and this could be one to watch.

Anything else I will only believe when it actually happens.

However, if either or both of these rumours were true and came to fruition then it would be incredible business for us.

Please do not shoot the messenger, I am only reporting what I have read.COYS

I think for a number 9 striker then Spurs are probably the least attractive club in the world right now.

Unless he agitates for a move (and he's shown no sign thus far) then Kane will be the Spurs striker for the next 5-8 years. Werner's good but he's never going to oust Kane so it's effective a bench and league cup role. Not very appealing.

You basically need to find your own version of Solsjaer - very good goalscorer who is happy playing from the bench.

Werner can play on wing. Yes not really a 9 from what I've seen. We have got enough forwards. Llorente has shown he can finish when called upon and Janssen might add energy when needed.

we need top quality CM

I can’t claim to have watched RBL that much but watched a couple of games after I found out we were signing Keita, Werner didn’t look like a winger to me. Looked like a centre forward who was comfortable drifting out wide to find space - bit like Henry used to (albeit not as good obviously).

Maybe I just watched the wrong games though.

I think the Kane situation is exactly the reason why Eriksen must be resigned. Even when Kane has missed time.... The axis of Son, Dele, Eriksen , Lamela & Moura is more than capable & interchangable to provide goals.... We are crying out for a proper ball playing central midfielder.... I don't think Winks is the answer, Sissoko is a squad player & Dier is a DM/CB hybrid.

They mainly research who has good potential on fifa career mode and go from there

Rumours are we’re preparing a bid for Alex Hunter.

We need CMs not attackers

I agree. Don’t really care whether it’s Kessie, Doucoure or whoever but a box to box midfielder should be our no1 priority.

Need a box to box and a playmaker

Or a hybrid. Dier will be good having back, can play in winks current role who has been poor of late. Dier is limited but offers a bit of leadership and metal

Totally agree. We are desperate for a CM. Especially if Dembele leaves as expected.
