5 Players Spurs Could Realistically Sign This Transfer Window

Gonzalo Higuain Chelsea

Mourinho's first chance to develop in north London

With the summer transfer window fast approaching, clubs will now be listing some potential transfer targets in an attempt to help take them to the next level.

While under the management of Mauricio Pocchettino, Tottenham chairman, Daniel Levy seemed rather reluctant to splash the cash on players. Arguably the money that would have been in the transfer budget at that time was used to build the new state of the art Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, which has clearly not changed much just yet.

Now as Jose Mourinho will begin his first full season at Spurs, he will be looking to strengthen his side prior to the start of the 2020/21 season. Following a rather poor showing so far this season by their standards, Mourinho will, without doubt, want to make improvements to the side so they can challenge the top clubs in the league once again.

Emil Audero - GK - Sampdoria

With captain Hugo Lloris only having two years left on his contract - by which time he will be 35 - Spurs need to start thinking towards the future for the goalkeeper position.

Following the World Cup winner's horrific arm injury against Brighton in October, one thing that Tottenham learned the hard way was that back up goalkeeper, Paulo Gazzaniga is not up to standard for the Premier League. Following Lloris' broken arm, it took the Argentine over two months to get himself his first clean sheet in the Premier League, something far from acceptable for a team that is supposed to compete for the top six.

Young goalkeeper, Emil Audero could be the perfect fit for Tottenham. The 23-year old has made 62 appearances for Serie A side, Sampdoria since the start of last season. This exposure to high-level first-team football at a young age will certainly well equip the shot-stopper for a step up from Sampdoria in due course.

I think it would be a sensible to move for Tottenham to buy the goalkeeper this year and then loan him out back to a high-level club like Sampdoria and will be ready to don the number one shirt as soon as Lloris leaves the club.

Max Aarons - RB - Norwich City

One of the brighter sparks in what has been a miserable season for Norwich which will almost certainly see them making an immediate return to the Championship.

At 20 years of old, Aarons has shown this season that he does have the potential and current ability to play in the Premier League. Considering the Canaries will need to make some financial cutbacks that come with relegation, selling the right-back will be a wise move because his quality, being a homegrown player and four years left on his current contract at Carrow Road will all contribute to what could a monumental price tag that only the richest of clubs could afford.

Aarons will be a key player on Mourinho's radar because the right-back position is somewhere in the squad that they could do with upgrading because Serge Aurier, this season, has been recognised as a weak link in the team that opponents have targeted.

Alessio Romagnoli - CB - AC Milan

Romagnoli has been ever-present for Milan this season and the 25-year old has put in impressive performances in the current campaign.

One of the big stories in the past year surrounding Spurs is the question of whether to extend the contract of Jan Vertonghen, the Belgian defender's current deal runs out at the end of the season. In addition, Toby Alderweireld is not getting any younger and has been below par this season. Going into next season, it looks as if Davinson Sanchez will need to be accompanied by some real quality at the back considering Juan Foyth has never looked comfortable in a Spurs shirt.

The centre-back position is surely one of high priority that Mourinho needs to strengthen. Romagnoli has had plenty of experience in Serie A, having played regular first-team football since the start of the 2014/15 season. Currently 25 years of age as well, the Italian defender would also be a signing with the future in mind as well as the present.

Donny van de Beek - CM - Ajax

One of the players that really impressed the footballing world with his performances in Ajax's dramatic Champions League run in the 2018/19 season.

The Dutch giants have a wonderfully renowned youth academy that has produced excellent players like, Dennis Bergkamp, Christian Eriksen and Patrick Kluivert. The midfielder is still at the young age of 23 and van de Beek is both younger and a definite upgrade on the likes of Harry Winks, Eric Dier and Moussa Sissoko.

Back in May 2018, the Dutch midfielder even scored at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the Champions League semi-final first leg as Ajax won 1-0 before losing the second leg in dramatic fashion.

Andrej Kramaric - ST - TSG Hoffenheim

One thing Tottenham have really struggled with this season is that they suffer when Harry Kane has been absent through injury. One thing that did not help them was that Fernando Llorente left the club last year.

Even though players like Son Heung-min and Lucas Moura have experience of playing as a striker, they have plied their trade as prolific wingers. Despite not impressing in the Premier League during his time at Leicester City, Kramaric has since shown that he is a clinical goalscorer at Hoffenheim and played a key part in Croatia's run to the World Cup final in 2018.

This season has been a difficult campaign for Kramaric. Since Alfred Schreuder took over at Hoffenheim last year, he has only made 13 starts for Die Kraichgauer and made six unused substitute appearances. Having lost his regular place in the team, Tottenham could pounce and make the Croatian striker a good quality back up to Harry Kane.
