Former Premier League goalkeeper Shaka Hislop believes Tottenham Hotspur can sign England ace Jadon Sancho, and has explained why he thinks that is the case.
There are going to be a lot of eyes on Spurs’ transfer activities this summer, after they failed to sign anyone in either of the last two windows.
Tottenham will be linked with a number of players between now and the window reopening, and Hislop believes that Daniel Levy and Mauricio Pochettino will go out and make a statement signing.
The goalkeeper has also suggested that Manchester United and Real Madrid will have helped in that cause, as with Zinedine Zidane already having his return confirmed, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer expected to be in the Old Trafford hot seat permanently, the Spurs boss will be staying at White Hart Lane.
Therefore that continuity can help Tottenham make big signings, with Hislop believing the Borussia Dortmund star Sancho would fit the bill.
“I just feel that this is a perfect fit for Sancho and his talents,” he told ESPN FC.
“Also coming together, I spoke about Pochettino, I think he will still be at White Hart Lane come next season.
“Let’s keep in mind that Daniel Levy and Spurs have barely spent any money over the last couple of seasons.
“I think, new stadium opening, Pochettino, who I think will stay, given Solskjaer, given Zidane and Real Madrid, those were the two big clubs really after Pochettino reportedly, Pochettino will be promised money.
“And if I’ve got a whole lot of money to spend and I’m looking for an up and coming talent, that maybe available, and maybe acquirable, Jadon Sancho ticks all those boxes.
“I think Spurs spend heavy on him.”
Sancho is going to be in demand by plenty of clubs this summer, with Manchester United already rumoured to be ready to offer £100 million for his services, so if Spurs are going to make what would be an amazing signing, the chances are they are going to have to part with plenty of cash.
