Tottenham have such a well-rounded squad even the “incredible” Dele Alli is a bit-part player.
That is according to ex-Spurs, Manchester City and Leeds man Michael Brown, who spoke exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Adam Williams.
He was reacting to the news reported in the Evening Standard among other outlets that RB Leipzig midfielder Marcel Sabitzer could be on his way to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the January transfer window.
Brown was in no doubts over the depth of talent at Jose Mourinho’s disposal but maintained that the addition of a fresh face, especially one of Sabitzer’s quality, will always be a bonus.
“Which manager wouldn’t take another attacking player like him?” he asked Football Insider.
“As a squad, they look healthy, they look good, they’ve got balance.
“You look at the bench, nine subs and Dele Alli didn’t even make it, which was just incredible. So they do have some serious talent.
“But you do think Spurs could improve in terms of individuals.
“Maybe they could swap a few players with new signings to get to the level of a Championship winning side.”
Sabitzer, a Champions League semi-finalist with RB Leipzig last season, has played 44-times for Austria and is widely regarded as one of the Bundesliga’s finest midfielders.
The versatile 26-year-old has an excellent goalscoring record and netted his 100th career goal against Freiburg in November.
