Jermaine Jenas believes Tottenham Hotspur can't wait until January

The former Spurs midfielder feels the club made poor decisions in the summer.

Former Tottenham Hotspur player Jermaine Jenas has been heavily critical of the club’s work in the summer transfer window during an appearance on BBC Radio 5 live.

Jenas, who spent eight years as a Spurs player, made it clear that he felt Spurs did not take the opportunity this summer to put pressure on players in the right areas of the field:

“I think they could have gone harder, in pushing people like Eriksen with better players, Eriksen and Lamela with better players in that area.

“They could have got a better option than Janssen, in that attacking area.”

Danish international Eriksen has certainly struggled for form this season and it seems Jenas does not believe summer signing Moussa Sissoko was the right man to try and pressurise him.

He went on to state that the French international, who cost Spurs around £30 million according to the BBC, is simply not a Spurs player and that Tottenham will be looking forward to January so they can rectify their transfer errors:

“I think that they half played it safe and relied a lot on the youth and people like Sissoko who I do not think suits Spurs at all.

“I think they are paying for it now. (I think) they can’t wait for January.”

Spurs fans have certainly struggled to take to both Janssen and Sissoko recently. The former tries hard, but struggles to score goals it seems at this level. The latter, who shone for France at Euro 2016, has not been a big hit among the Tottenham faithful as he struggles to fit into their system.

Hopefully both can come good for Tottenham in the near future.

If not, the situation may have to be addressed in the January transfer window.
