5. Ryan Sessegnon
As I said, the majority of the club’s summer expenditures will be devoted to solving the club’s attack. Notice I didn’t say that all of the club’s summer purchases would be allocated to front line players.

I don’t think it’s any secret that Ben Davies is struggling to fill Danny Rose’s spot in the starting XI. He simply doesn’t have the athleticism to play the position the same way that Rose does. That’s why Sessegnon would be a terrific summer purchase.
The English starlet has been outstanding for Fulham this year in the Championship. He’s arguably the division’s top prospect. Bringing him to White Hart Lane to learn under Pochettino’s watchful eye would be perfect for his development.
It would also be perfect for Spurs. Adding Sessegnon would give the club a promising backup for Rose and allow them to sell Davies to a club that better suits his style of play. Winning the race for Sessegnon won’t be cheap (or easy) but it could pay big dividends for the club down the line.
