Sky journalist makes revelation about Tottenham summer transfer plans
By Amir Mir
Tottenham want to make at least one attacking signing in the summer, according to a reliable journalist.
Sky Sports journalist Lyall Thomas made the revelation about the club’s transfer plans on his personal Twitter account on Sunday evening.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side recently concluded the Premier League season by finishing off the campaign as runners-up to winners Chelsea.
“Tottenham want at least one new attacking player this summer but not many players out there to improve on Son-Alli-Eriksen,” Thomas wrote on his personal Twitter account.

Last summer, the North London club made three attacking transfers by signing Georges-Kevin N’Koudou, Moussa Sissoko and Vincent Janssen.

France international Sissoko was the biggest transfer as he made a £30million switch from Newcastle, who had suffered relegation to the Championship at that time.
All three have struggled since making their moves, with N’Koudou and Sissoko failing to find the back of the net and striker Janssen scoring only two league goals.
As a result, the club have relied upon Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Son Heung-Min to score the bulk of their goals as the trio have scored over 20 goals each this season in competitions.
Football Insider verdict:
With another Champions League campaign on the horizon and moving into Wembley, Spurs will need to add more strength to their attacking line. There is not much wrong with their starting XI, but the depth of quality, especially in an attacking sense, is weak. If Pochettino’s side are to secure a Premier League title or compete better in Europe then they need better quality players than the three attackers that were signed last summer. Sissoko should especially be shown the exit door as he has failed to show any threat in the final third since his big-money move.
