Spurs already lagging behind competitors in race to land talent
While there’s no questioning Paratici’s ability to get a head start on prospective transfers, it’s unlikely he’ll be able to pull the final trigger.
And that poses a problem for Spurs, who are already lagging behind direct competitors in the race to secure talent for the forthcoming campaign. Other Premier League clubs are already poised to start bidding on primary targets, ensuring transfers have enough time to assimilate to their new environment before pre-season training commences.

While Tottenham waits impatiently to hire a new gaffer, it’s not a quagmire that Paratici cannot overcome, but it will take a concerted effort to quickly, not haphazardly, get Tottenham’s affairs in order.
If Paratici fails to quickly and efficiently right the ship, Daniel Levy has another scapegoat to blame the disarray on.
And if Paratici pulls off the miraculous and has Tottenham in a place to complete advantageous signings before the end of Euro 2020, Levy will undoubtedly take the plaudits.
Though even if Paratici gets his ducks in a row behind the scenes, new arrivals to north London will almost assuredly have less time to get used to their new surroundings before the 2021-2022 season kicks off.
Either way, Paratici faces an uphill battle to restore Tottenham to prominence. You can guarantee that feat will take a lot longer than a single, increasingly abbreviated summer.
