Tottenham Hotspur’s recruitment process is on hold, according to the Daily Mail. The report claims that due to the global health crisis, furloughed staff in the club’s scouting department must cease working, including watching footage of potential transfer targets at home.
However, the good news for Tottenham fans in this scenario is that Spurs are reportedly done with their scouting already.
The Mail claim that Tottenham have already identified their potential transfer targets for the next transfer window. The final decision on those signings will now rest with manager Jose Mourinho, chairman Daniel Levy and chief scout Steve Hitchen at a more appropriate time.
Tottenham fans should be glad to hear that the club has already drawn up their shortlist of potential targets for the summer. It shows a much-needed foresight amid the club’s struggles on the pitch this season.
However, making transfer decisions will likely have to wait until Tottenham assess the financial impact of the current lockdown and whether the Premier League season does eventually resume and the impact of potential European qualification.
But Tottenham fans will hope that the club are in a position to bring in some of these identified targets when the next transfer window finally opens.
