Tottenham Hotspur’s fate in the ongoing Premier League campaign hangs in the balance, as the authorities figure it out whether or not it is okay to resume football amid Coronavirus pandemic. However, that hasn’t stopped the Lilywhites from being active in the transfer market, although missing out on Champions League could serve as a massive blow for the club, as far as market activity is concerned.

In this article, we will talk about two things Jose Mourinho needs to worry about in the upcoming summer transfer window.

What does the future hold of Harry Kane at Tottenham Hotspur?

Harry Kane has emerged as a subject of speculations linking him to a move away from north London. The English international has already been courted by Manchester United, among many other clubs across Europe. Even the player himself has reportedly admitted that he would consider moving elsewhere if the team makes no progress.

Kane’s potential departure could serve as a massive blow for Tottenham. He has been their leading striker for the past few years and is considered as one of the best players in world football.

His sale will create a massive void in the goalscoring department and given how Spurs have struggled without him, Mourinho needs to do everything he can to convince Kane to remain at the club this summer. The striker’s future could very well depend on whether Spurs qualify for the Champions League next season.

Even then, it would perhaps be wiser for Mourinho to kickstart his search for finding a proper replacement. It will be a difficult job finding a proper successor of Kane, but Tottenham could gain the upper hand by making early moves in the market.

Signing fullbacks

Lack of quality fullbacks could transform into a major issue for Tottenham Hotspur next season. In the right-back slot, the club has really struggled to replace Kieran Trippier, following his move to Atletico Madrid last summer.

Serge Aurier has emerged as a first-team regular but has lacked consistency. Meanwhile, other options like Kyle Walker-Peters and Juan Foyth have failed to win the trust of Mourinho.

Tottenham arguably face bigger problems on the opposite flank, with Ben Davies as the only option. Even then, the Welshman’s disastrous form after returning from injury was overshadowed by the club’s existing defensive problems. So the Lilywhites need to secure the services of two reliable fullbacks if they are to revamp their defensive department this summer truly.
