Tottenham Hotspur Transfers
Son Heung Min from Bayer Leverkusen for £22m in 2015
When the South Korean winger arrived at White Hart Lane in 2015, he was only 23-years old. However, he already played 5 seasons in Germany, first for Hamburg and then Leverkusen. The move proved to be a very smart buy from Spurs since Son proved his potential in the Premier League. So far, the winger has scored 61 goals in the league for the team and there’s obviously still more to come.
Luka Modrić from Dinamo Zagreb for £16.5m in 2008
The arrival of the Croatian central midfielder was seen as a smart move from the very start and the fee paid to Dinamo Zagreb for Modrić was the club’s record at the time, along with the transfer for Darren Bent for the same fee. The midfielder struggled for a while but he showed class after getting adjusted to the Premier League. He spent four years at the club before going to Real Madrid for £30 million.
Dimitar Berbatov from Bayer Leverkusen for £16m in 2006
After moving to England for a fee of £16 million, Dimitar Berbatov became the most expensive Bulgarian footballer in history. He only spent 2 years at Tottenham and scored only 27 goals but that was enough for the club to earn a nice profit after selling him to Manchester United for £31 million in 2008.
Gareth Bale from Southampton for £5m in 2007
The Welsh winger arrived at Tottenham for a modest fee of £5 million and he quickly impressed everyone at the club with unmatched pace and talent. After six years at the club, he was sold to Real Madrid for then record-breaking £90 million. In 2020, Bale returned to Tottenham on a loan.
Tanguy Ndombele from Olympique Lyon for £55 in 2019
The most expensive signing in the history of the club is Tanguy Ndombele, a French midfielder who came to Tottenham for a fee of £55 million, plus add-ons. His first season at the club was not the best but he did show potential that might make his signing worthwhile in the end.
