Gabby Agbonlahor has claimed that ’Tottenham Hotspur are looking in a better position’ with the transfers they have brought in, but ‘Chelsea are catching them’, as he told talkSPORT.

The former Premier League striker was making reference to Chelsea closing in on the signing of Jules Kounde from Sevilla – a player that was on Tottenham’s radar.

Richarlison has been his big-money capture after they paid £60 million to Everton for his talents, whilst someone like Ivan Perisic or Yves Bissouma have been their smart signings. 

As for Chelsea, they have managed to lure Raheem Sterling to Stamford Bridge from the Etihad and added hard-hitting defender, Kalidou Koulibaly.

Nonetheless, when Agbonlahor was talking about the transfer business from Spurs and Chelsea, as well as the latter closing in on Kounde, this is what he had to say. 

“I did say Spurs are looking in a better position, at the moment, with the signings they have made,” said Agbonlahor 

“But Chelsea are catching them now. Koulibaly is a great centre-back. Kounde will add as well to the defence, with Thiago Silva. 

“So, I still think they need another midfielder and striker, but for me, their defence will be sorted with Kounde’s signing.”

CAN SPURS FINISH ABOVE CHELSEA?

Even Spurs fans would probably agree, if Conte wasn’t in their dugout, then they wouldn’t have secured a top-four finish last season. 

But as Chelsea fans know too well, and now those in north London, the Italian can eek out the absolute best from everybody and anybody.

With a pre-season under his belt, added with summer signings, Harry Kane and Heung-Min son at their disposal, they are being backed to do bits ahead of the new campaign. 

But can they finish about Chelsea? Who secured third spot pretty comfortably under Thomas Tuchel last time out?

Well, those in blue will probably feel out of all the teams below them, it’s probably Tottenham who have the best chance of overtaking them.
