All The New Faces At Tottenham Hotspur Reviewed
Richarlison – Bought For £60million
The 25-year-old Everton striker has been brought over to North London in the light of providing cover to Harry Kane in the striking position. The Brazilian sensation remains versatile in the attacking end, making him a perfect fit for Antonio Conte’s squad. He managed to score 11 goals and secure five assists over 32 appearances for the Merseyside club last season across all fronts. He performed exceptionally well to save them from relegation during the final weeks of the Premier League.
Yves Bissouma – Bought For £25million
The Mali international performed well in the central areas of the pitch for Brighton last season. He put in a series of dominant displays in the midfield catching the eye of Antonio Conte. He can certainly increase competition in the holding positions providing cover for Pierre Emile-Hojbjerg and Rodrigo Bentancur. The 25-year-old fared well at the end of last season scoring two goals and producing two assists over 28 appearances across all competitions. He also managed to average 2.9 tackles, 1.9 interceptions, 1.8 clearances and 1.3 dribbles per game in the English first division.
Ivan Perisic – Free Tranfer
The 33-year-old winger has found the back of the net on ten occasions and produced nine assists over 49 appearances for Inter Milan during the last campaign on all fronts. His experience and skillset would definitely inject more goals into the Lilywhites’ attack. They could make use of a player with such calibre as they are bound to compete in the Champions League. Perisic would be seen coming off the bench making a huge difference during important games.
Fraser Forster – Free Transfer
Forster has appeared in 143 matches during which he has acquired 42 clean sheets in the Premier League. He had a decent campaign with Southampton last season as they finished in the fifteenth position in the English first division. Conte was looking to bring forth a goalkeeper to provide support to Hugo Lloris who has been exceptional in between the sticks. Forster would be seen playing second fiddle to Lloris in the next campaign, mostly being a cup keeper when required.
