Tottenham Hotspur’s best 11 will look very different next season.
“Tottenham’s squad for the 2023/24 season under manager Enzi Postecoglou will be shaped by big transfers across four positions,” the club said on Tuesday.
This season has been one of Spurs’ worst ever. It’s not surprising that the drought that began in 2007/08 continued this season, but the team disappointed fans by finishing eighth in the league.
After climbing as high as second in the league at one point early in the season, Spurs seemed to fade after the World Cup break. However, they were still able to maintain a top-four finish in the league, so there was hope that they could qualify for the UEFA Champions League next season.
However, after Antonio Conte stepped down as head coach due to poor results, assistant coach Christian Stellini took over as acting manager, and the team’s form deteriorated further, dropping out of the top four.
Spurs fired Stellini and brought in Ryan Mason, who lost three of his final five league games to finish eighth, behind Brighton and Aston Villa, and failed to qualify for the UEFA-organized club competition.
Tottenham’s appointment of Postecoglou, who led Scottish giants Celtic to three titles, signaled the beginning of a transformation. The club will also be looking to strengthen across all positions in the upcoming summer transfer window.
First up, the club will look to bring in David Laya (Brentford) to replace goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, who has been linked with a move to Saudi Arabia or parent club Nice. Laya, who boasts excellent saves and footwork, would be an ideal replacement for Yoris.
In defense, Aymeric Laporte, who won the Champions League with Manchester City this season, is expected to join the team. Laporte, who has fallen off Pep Guardiola’s radar, is likely to leave City this summer.
“If they can land Laporte, Tottenham’s defense will go to the next level. Spurs should go all out to sign Laporte.”
He also envisions a shift from a back three to a back four, with Destiny Udoji returning from loan at Udinese at left back and Pedro Foro on the right.먹튀검증
In the midfield, I believe Yves Bissouma will win competition from Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Oliver Skipp for a starting spot, and will be joined by Rodrigo Bentancur and Leicester City playmaker James Maddison.
Finally, in the attack, I think they will sign Dejan Kulusevski outright from his loan at Juventus and keep Harry Kane, who has been linked to Manchester United and Real Madrid, to form a top three with Son Heung-min.
