A select round-up of news relating to Tottenham Hotspur…
Tottenham Hotspur will target three quality signings this summer according to the Telegraph.
The paper reports that after spending a fortune on new additions last summer, Spurs will look to bring in a trio of players who can make an immediate impact on the new campaign.
That does not rule out the possibility of further, younger arrivals who could look to push for a first-team chance in the future. But it appears Tottenham want to hit the ground running next season.
The same newspaper reports that one man who arrived last summer – Erik Lamela – is at serious risk of missing the World Cup as his injury problems continue.
With the Argentine unlikely to return to the first-team squad before mid-April, he will have little time to prove he is match-fit and ready for a spot on the plane to Brazil. Any further set-back in his recovery and that chance may well be gone altogether.
The defender is quoted as saying he is yet to hear anything from Spurs about a possible new deal.
“I focus now to the very end of the season. Whether I play at Tottenham next year? I have not spoken with the club.”
Although he did add that for now he is 100% committed to the club, only the time will tell if he remains at White Hart Lane for the long haul.
