Rio Ferdinand’s message on new Spurs signing Yves Bissouma that Tottenham fans will love

Totteham will be a team to watch this season after a successful transfer window, according to Premier League great Rio Ferdinand.

Rio Ferdinand says the Premier League will see the best of Yves Bissouma once his fitness improves, after he made his Spurs debut against Southampton over the weekend.

Bissouma made a name for himself at Brighton and Hove Albion where he was considered the best midfielder in Graham Potter’s dynamic side.

He, alongside Everton’s Richarlison, lead the group of players who have arrived at Tottenham seeking to help them challenge Manchester City and Liverpool for the Premier League title.

And Spurs wasted little time in showing off their muscles with a come from behind 4-1 win against Southampton.

Asked which team has impressed him so far this summer, the former England and Manchester United defender said Spurs.

He told the Vibe with Five podcast that it’s only a matter of time before Bissouma and his teammates storm the Premier League.

“Kulusevski, him and Bentancur are two wicked signings. You saw last season, they came in and hit the ground running,” the Peckham lad said.

“I would argue that Spurs have had the best window. Bissouma, who starts in that team, is going to make a difference, Richarlison, gives them another dimension.

“They’ve got good options up there, Lucas Moura’s still there and I think the Conte impact is massive - the mentality, the drive.

“What I loved when I saw Kane and Son being sick in pre-season, he is stripping all these men back, I don’t care who you are, Golden Boot, I don’t care, strip you back you’re all getting rinsed in pre-season.”

Tottenham take on Chelsea

Tottenham made a strong start to their season but that will be put to the test when they travel to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea this weekend.

They were beaten four times by Chelsea last campaign, including three times last January, and their recent growth will be measured on how well they react to the Chelsea test this weekend.

Antonio Conte is a demanding manager and he would have been hurt by the way his side rolled over against the Blues and will want a big statement.
