Tottenham need a star signing like Mesut Ozil says Collymore


Football pundit Stan Collymore revealed that he feels Tottenham need to make high profile signings like Arsenal stars Mesut Özil or Alexis Sanchez regardless of their price tag.

Collymore stated that Spurs missed the opportunity to bring in marquee names like Arsenal did and that their transfer policy has been flawed.

“It’s been a strange three or four seasons – I think the crucial thing is, Tottenham should have gone for a big marquee signing at £30 or 40 million, someone like Mesut Ozil or Sanchez rather than Paulinho – I do fear there will be a big burden of expectation on Harry Kane next year,” Collymore was quoted as saying by HITC.

The former Nottingham Forrest star believes Tottenham need to bring in a higher caliber of player to reduce the expectations on Harry Kane.

Tottenham sold Gareth Bale to Real Madrid for £82 million in the summer but his replacements have been criticised as lacking the quality to take the club forwards.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has been criticised in the past for not spending money on bringing in players of the highest calibre but he has altered his policy recently.

Özil joined Arsenal on a club record £42.5 million transfer from Real Madrid in 2013. The North London based club also signed Chilean star Alexis Sanchez the following summer for £35 million.
