Jose Mourinho says he can make transfer decisions that will solve Tottenham problems

football.london: It’s going to be a very interesting summer at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with limited funds in the transfer market to play with.

Clubs across the globe are not going to be able to splash the cash as they have done in previous years and many will need to be very creative with what they have available in the transfer kitty.

Jose Mourinho did start to add to his squad in January with the additions of Gedson Fernandes and Steven Bergwijn but the club’s form this season has highlighted that a number of areas need to be improved on if they are to climb the table once again.

A new striker has to be high up on Mourinho’s list of priorities having had no back-up option to come in for Harry Kane during his injury layoff, while it’s evident that Spurs require a defensive midfielder to give the much-troubled back four a bit more protection.

Mourinho’s sides have always been built on a solid backline but this has not been the case in north London so far after only keeping three clean sheets in 26 games.

Defence is very much a priority or else the team will more often than not have an uphill task to win games if they carry on conceding.

One area that will need addressing, although that not a pressing priority right now given the squads other needs, is in goal.

Hugo Lloris has made some high-profile mistakes over the past two seasons for the club that have resulted in dropped points.

In fact, the Frenchman has been at fault for three of the last four goals they have conceded after his costly errors in the away games at Burnley and RB Leipzig.

While the head coach may be keen on adding to the goalkeeping department as he looks to build a squad for the future, the limited funds coupled with other areas of the pitch that need addressing first and foremost means a new goalkeeper needs to be put on the back burner for now.

However, one thing for sure is that it must become a priority position sooner rather than later.

Last summer in N17 was dominated by talk that Christian Eriksen, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen could all depart on free transfers at the end of the season due to their contract status.

Discussions need to take place over the coming months about the players who can walk away for nothing in the summer of 2021 to stop the above situation occurring again, with those in the same boat 12 months down the line also on the agenda.

A player’s market value starts to decrease once he enters the final two years of his deal and that means clubs have to start planning for the future by either offering new deals or cashing in while they can still get a decent fee.

A look at the players who are out of contract at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in 2022 shows that the club need to be proactive as Lloris, Paulo Gazzaniga, Alfie Whiteman and Brandon Austin will all be soon entering the final two years of their respective deals.

Michel Vorm, the club’s other goalkeeper on the books, is out of contract at the end of this season after signing a short-term contract in October following the elbow injury that Lloris sustained in the defeat at Brighton.

None of the aforementioned goalkeepers would bring in massive amounts if the club decided to cash in before 2022, but the fact they are all out of contract at the same time highlights that it is an area that will soon be a priority.

While there’s the possibility that all four could be offered new terms to extend their stay at the club and things stay exactly as they are, it presents Spurs with a real opportunity to really upgrade on the current options between the sticks.

Key to Spurs challenging at the top once again will be bringing in players who can improve each position even if it means that those who have played a key part in previous years are cast aside.

Mauricio Pochettino was always fiercely loyal to his captain but Mourinho may think differently if he continues to make some costly blunders here and there once football finally resumes.

Whether the head coach brings in a new second-choice goalkeeper to really push Lloris in the short term or signs a new No.1, changes need to be made if there is to be a considerable improvement in north London.

Tottenham need to sign at least 4 players when the transfer market opens if they want to compete with the likes of Liverpool and Mancity when the next season starts
1. Goal keeper
2. Striker
3. Defensive mid fielder
4. Right back
5. Center back (optional)

Of course he can sign players that will change Tottenham as a whole but the problem is the chairman of the club won’t release enough fund to sign them

Really i think Jose Mourinho should be given the chance to scout for his players himself and motivated with finance to buy the players. He will always have excuses to make if he fumbles by the end of the season, so let him have what he wants

Jose Mourinho can go ahead to make decisions in terms of signing in new players but he should be conscious of the players he should buy for better performance

Mourinho needs to strenghten his team because most of the senior players will be leaving after their contract ends and moreso he need a back up striker for Harry Kane based what has happened to him.

When it comes to cash you can trust jose on that, he knows the exact players for is team, so dealing with transfers himself, that means the club need to be ready for spending spree, but one thing jose has, he spent them well.
