It was commonly acknowledged that Tottenham destabilised their squad by doing too much transfer business last close season.
Nevertheless, with the appointment of Mauricio Pochettino as new Tottenham boss, The Telegraph has implied that the Argentine has 9 major targets this summer. soccersweep runs the rule over each.
Romelu Lukaku – there is very little not to like about this guy but Jose Mourinho seems strangely indifferent to the brilliant Belgian. Any chance Tottenham get they should most definitely snap him up for next season. He guarantees goals.
Jay Rodriguez – Was injured just as he got into contention for Ricky Lambert’s World Cup berth. A real nightmare for the lad. The silver lining could be a move to Tottenham. He’s worth a punt.
Loic Remy – This guy is hot property. The reason? Because he’s got a bit of everything. Pace, power, precision and football intelligence. We think he would improve any squad in The Premier League.
Mattia Destro – The 23 year old Roma striker has scored 13 in 20 league games this season but has recently stated that he wants to remain in Rome. So a move seems unlikely right now.
Adam Lallana – as a little bit of the Hoddles about him don’t you think?
Alvaro Vadillo – This 19 year old left winger at Real Betis is hot property. He’s been likened to Ronaldo and Tottenham won’t be the only interested party.
Dejan Lovren – a solid 24-year-old defender who is another highly sought after Premier League star. With Pochettino in town Tottenham may jump the queue for his signature.
Daley Blind – The 24 year old Dutch international will be at The World Cup this summer. Can play defensive midfield or as a left-back.
Morgan Schneiderlin – Will Southampton have any players left by the start of next season?
Tottenham fans – who do you most need out of this lot?
