Spurs boss targets more new bodies.
Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas has admitted that he still needs to add more players to his ranks this summer if the club are to compete with the best next season, Sky Sports reports.
The north London outfit agreed a deal with Dutch side FC Twente over the weekend for highly rated Belgian midfielder Nacer Chadli, who will complete his move to White Heart Lane this week after agreeing personal terms and passing a medical.
Chadli will become the club’s second signing of the transfer window, having already added Brazilian international midfielder Paulinho to the side after his exploits in the Confederations Cup last month.
The Portuguese coach is expected to be heavily involved in the transfer window this summer, having watched his side fall heart breaking close to securing Champions League football next term and he has revealed that he is hoping to add numbers to the squad for enhanced competition.
“We will continue to do our market and we have not stopped yet, for sure,” he said.
Spurs are believed to be desperately seeking a new striker after missing out on Aston Villa’s Christian Benteke last week following news that he had agreed a new four year deal to stay in the West Midlands.
Though Chadli will prove a shrewd addition, adding more creative flair to the attacking midfield area, AVB spoke of his delight at being able to bring him on board.
“Chadli’s a player we’ve been following for quite some time and we managed to strike a deal in the last few days.
“He’s a player who is extremely versatile and can play in several positions up front. He played with tremendous success on the left for Twente as a winger and as an attacker for Belgium. We look forward to having him on board with us.”
