You never know with cup runs...Many Spurs fans have written the season off already. No way we are getting 4th; waiting to be knocked out of the CL. A Cup run would be a nice distraction.
It must be hard to find positives in the short term.
Kane out for (probably) 3-6 weeks. Ndombele (£60m) off injured again and Mourinho calling him out to the press after a loss. Inconsistency throughout the squad.
Mourinho getting booked and insulting other teams to the press.
The main concern is what Levy will do in the transfer market in January and summer. Who will stay/go and is the club an attractive prospect for much needed players?
Harry Winks is wanted by both Manchester United and Manchester City. The former want to sign him this month whilst the latter are planning a summer move. [The Athletic]
Seems that was a bit prematureTottenham have agreed a deal worth £28m for AC Milan forward Krzysztof Piatek, according to a few sources.
The Athletic UKSpurs are reluctant to pay the fee of around £30M demanded by AC Milan for striker Krzysztof Piątek.
Be interesting to see a) if West ham do sign Gedson on loan from Benfica and b) if so how he performs in the EPL. Very versatile hard working midfielder( with some CL and Europa League experience) team player, he defends and attacks well, passing good, movement good and has got the odd goal . Not scared to rough it looks quite slight but thats deceptive as he has lots of determination and some strength. He's in a queue to try and break full time into what is an overcrowded Benfica midfield esepcially due to the unexpected revival of Adel Taarabt. Benfica also have a model as a selling club where good promising youngsters ie Joa Felix, Renato Sanchez are flogged off often at somewhat inflated prices despite needing a bit of development .Benfica cant really lose with this as the loan will add value to any future transfer. For West ham its a bit of a gamble as the tempo and tactics of the game in the EPL are very different from the Portuguese League and hes not the finished product . West Ham fans will need to be a bit patient with his development but if he signs I hope he does well.
Be hilarious if Chelsea stepped in again and signed him, a la WillianGedson Fernandes is set to join José Mourinho's Spurs on a 1.5 year loan deal with a non-compulsory buying option of €50m [A Bola]
I wrote a bit about him on the West Ham thread as it looked like he might be going there:
