'I really think...' - Exclusive: Top Pundit shares bold Tottenham claim
Tottenham will “definitely” win a trophy this season, according to Paul Robinson.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, the former Tottenham and England goalkeeper believes the club’s transfer business means the squad is the “strongest it’s looked in a number of years”.
Jose Mourinho has added midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, goalkeeper Joe Hart and defenders Matt Doherty, Sergio Reguilion and Joe Rodon on permanent deals.
Meanwhile forwards Gareth Bale and Carlos Vinicius have moved to north London on loan with the club having an option to make Vinicius’ move permanent next year.
Young players Troy Parrott, Oliver Skipp, Juan Foyth, Ryan Sessegnon and Cameron Carter-Vickers have all left the club on loan.
And with the strength of Mourinho’s additions, Robinson believes it made sense for them to leave.

He told Football Insider: “Players like that are players that the club likes, that the club wants to keep but there’s no space for him in the current squad.
“There’s no point keeping a player that can go out on loan to prop up the under-23s or to play a bit part, traveling on a bus around the country sitting on the bench or in the stands watching Spurs.
“You look at the additions Jose’s made at Spurs this window, the squad looks the strongest it’s looked in a number of years.
“I really think Spurs can do something this year. I think they’ll definitely win something this year.
“With the squad of the size and quality that they’ve got it just makes sense for players like that to go out on loan.”
Tottenham have not lost since their opening day defeat to Premier League leaders Everton.
They will visit Stoke City in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals in December and begin their Europa League group stage campaign on Thursday.
