Tottenham Hotspurs' transfers rated

2015-09-02 15:22

Cape Town - Mauricio Pochettino's failed pursuit of England striker Saido Berahino could come back to haunt him.

Tottenham Hotspurs' transfers rated: 5/10

Spurs failed to add to their strike force all summer and now have placed a lot of expectation on the shoulders of Harry Kane and new recruit Son Heung-min.

Transfer summary:

In: Kevin Wimmer (Cologne, £4.3m), Kieran Trippier (Burnley, £3.5m), Toby Alderweireld (Atletico, undisclosed), Clinton N'jie (Lyon, £12m), Son Heung-min (Bayer Leverkusen, £22m)

Out: Brad Friedel (retired) Etienne Capoue (Watford, undisclosed), Paulinho (Guangzhou Evergrande, £10m), Lewis Holtby (Hamburg, £4.6m), Younes Kaboul (Spurs, undisclosed), Benjamin Stambouli (PSG, £6m), Roberto Soldado (Villarreal, £7m), Vlad Chiriches (Napoli, £4.5m), Ryan Fredericks (Bristol City, free), Shaquile Coulthirst (Wigan Athletic, loan), Aaron Lennon (Everton, £4.5m)

Best bit of business: They didn't manage to sign anyone outstanding but did well to cut their losses on several players including the likes of Soldado, Paulinho, Kaboul and Chiriches.

Worst bit of business: Failing to move Emmanuel Adebayor on was bad but failing to sign a backup striker to support Harry Kane was worse.
