Former Arsenal star Paul Merson has a habit of winding up Tottenham Hotspur fans and his latest comments look set to do so once again.
The Sky Sports pundit has been having his say on Spurs‘ summer transfer window activity and in particular his comments on the club’s record signing, Davinson Sanchez, who moved from Ajax for £38m, could rile supporters.
“It was a hard summer for Tottenham because they’ve got their first team settled and they were looking for squad players,” he explained.
“Yes, they let Kyle Walker leave but I’d be dropping him off at the gates of Man City for 50 million quid!
“I look at Serge Aurier and some of the stories that surround him and you wonder what will happen with him.”
He added: “Then they spent £38m on Davinson Sanchez, who is a player they didn’t really need and is just happy to be there.
“Fernando Llorente is good back-up to Harry Kane and will come on when they are chasing games.
“It’s been hard for Spurs in this market and people need to understand that.”
