How Tottenham could look with Sheikh Jassim’s billions to rub salt in Man Utd wounds

Sheikh Jassim might be persuaded to continue invest his money in a Premier League team and acquire shares in Tottenham after recently withdrew from the bidding process for Manchester United. Despite some Spurs fans asking him to quit the team totally in favor of new ownership, Daniel Levy was frank about how he is accepting new investment. Tottenham might splurge with Sheikh Jassim’s money to reinvest in their team and establish themselves as legitimate title challengers.Express Sport examines how their new starting lineup would appear with the Qatari billions supporting their transfer strategy.

Goalkeeper: Marc-Andre ter Stegen

Ter Stegen was heavily linked with a move to Spurs previously and it would be no surprise if he remains in their thoughts if Sheikh Jassim demands short-term success upon his arrival in north London – especially as Barcelona are still in a weak financial position and would be willing to entice Ter Stegen to leave. Guglielmo Vicario has made a sensational start to life at Spurs, but the Italian could benefit from working with a more experienced goalkeeper and learning from their experience

Defence: Jeremie Frimpong, Cristian Romero, Micky van de Ven, Destiny Udogie

Tottenham does not need to attempt to entirely rebuild their defense despite having the money to do so. Instead, bringing in Frimpong from Bayer Leverkusen would improve the right-back position further while finally allowing marginal players like Emerson Royal and Ivan Perisic to be let go. To prevent injuries from derailing Spurs’ campaign, it would also be essential to sign another top-tier center-back. Sporting sensation Ousmane Diomande, 19, would be one alternative that is investigated.

Ange Postecoglou might receive the transfer cash from Sheikh Jassim to enter the market and buy a defensively-minded midfielder of his choice to complete his midfield three. Martin Zubimendi has proven to be difficult for any big team to entice away from Real Sociedad, but if Spurs make a sizable offer for his services, the thought of becoming a part of a well-supported, wealthy project could prove compelling.

With Rodrigo Bentancur returning from injury and Pape Matar Sarr impressing so far this season, Tottenham do not lack depth in midfield and one further signing in the department – to replace Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg – would suffice.

Forwards: Kaoru Mitoma, Ivan Toney, Son Heung-min

In their first eight games of the season, Tottenham has scored freely, but they can still do more in that area. A huge declaration of intent from the team would be to sneak up and steal Ivan Toney from Chelsea and Arsenal, giving them the focal point needed for Postecoglou to play a more direct style of game when necessary.

If Tottenham receives an infusion of transfer riches, another left-winger would probably be on their shortlist, and Mitoma of Brighton is one of the best in Europe. The Japan international would thrive out wide for Spurs thanks to his outstanding dribbling style and quickness, however he won’t be cheap considering that he is in advanced talks to extend his contract at the Amex Stadium.
