Although Mauricio Pochettino had very little time to assess his squad and see what areas needed strengthening, the Argentine still made six signings over the summer window (seven, including Dele Alli in January), and some have been successes, whilst some have been flops. We rate the signings that Mauricio Pochettino made last summer.
Michel Vorm (5/10)
When the goalkeeper signed from Swansea in the summer, you would have thought he would have been informed that he would be second choice keeper behind Frenchman Hugo Lloris. Whether he was in the knowledge or not, Vorm has gone about things in a professional way, and although in my opinion he hast quite proved his worth yet, this piece of business hasn’t been too bad.
Ben Davies (6/10)
There was a very bad reaction from fans when Danny Rose signed a new contract with the club, and many thought that Ben Davies would start over Danny Rose. That was until we saw the excellent form of Rose, and perhaps this had something to do with the squad competition that Ben Davies brought to the club?
Eric Dier (8/10)
This signing has turned out to be a pretty good one, judging by his first season at the club. Despite form dropping off a little towards the tail end of the season, Eric Dier’s blistering start to the campaign has left us all wondering what this young man can do once he gets an extended run in the first team next season.
DeAndre Yedlin (N/A)
I cant give this signing a ratings as we have seen him appear just once in the Premier League against Aston Villa. We all hope to see more of the former Seattle player next season.
Federico Fazio (5/10)
It has been a debut season at Spurs littered with red cards for Federico Fazio. He has proved to be unreliable at the back for large parts of the season, and he has shown us all that he has the occasional error in him.
Benjamin Stambouli (5/10)
Benjamin Stambouli hasn’t featured much in the first team for Spurs this season, but when he has played, he has shown great composure in the midfield, and whether he will play more for us next season or even stay at the club remains to be seen with reports suggesting that he could be heading back to France in the summer.
Overall, it has been a decent summer for Mauricio Pochettino and Spurs, and as we know, new signings may need more than just one season to reach their full potential.
