Despite that, and a change in terms of manager, Spurs fans can be optimistic, with world-class manager Antonio Conte at the helm, and a chance to sign his own players.
The north London side currently sit sixth in the league, four points off of fourth place with two games in hand.
Conte has reportedly been assured by Daniel Levy that he will be financially backed, and given that, here’s three players Spurs can sign to reignite their season.
Spurs have made their interest in Adama Traore known this season.
Once one of the most feared players in the league, the Spaniard has fallen off recently, and his output has been really low.
If he could just refine his final ball and finishing, he would flourish into a fine player.
Conte is reportedly disappointed by Emerson Royal and Matt Doherty playing the wing-back role, due to their inability to be a threat in attacking positions, and wants Adama to fill that role.
Adama could be a big threat going forward, and if Conte wishes to change in game into a system that requires wingers, Adama can also fit in there.
Spurs are crying out for an energetic, box-to-box midfielder and Yves Bissouma is the answer.
Bissouma’s chapter at Brighton is seemingly coming to an end. His contract has just 1 months left and it’s looking unlikely he will sign a new one.
With Conte’s high press, energetic midfielders are needed, and Giovanni Lo Celso and Tanguy Ndombele just will not provide that, but, Bissouma can.
Despite his contract running out, Brighton aren’t concerned and have put a £50million price tag on Bissouma, with Liverpool and Aston Villa also expressing interest in him.
It’s been reported that Spurs want a midfielder “with the same profile” as Bissouma, so why not sign the man whose blueprint you want?
The transfer saga over the big Serbian centre forward is seemingly never ending.
Now, it seems we’re down to two clubs battling for the Vlahovic’s signature.
Arsenal and Tottenham are seemingly the front-runners for Vlahovic.
Like Bissouma, his contract is also running out in 2023, and La Viola are also unsure if he will sign a new one or not.
This one could run into the summer, as Fiorentina want around £75 million for the striker.
With Conte deploying the five-back formation, that gives a chance for two strikers up front.
With Harry Kane dropping deep to collect the ball, Vlahovic can occupy both positions up top given he’s a classic poacher.
This would gives Kane more freedom, and take the burden off of both him and Son Heung-Min.
