Tottenham now favourites to sign classy dynamo despite big interest, according to bookie
Tottenham look as if they’re building from back to front under their new manager Mauricio Pochettino.
Once they have finished with the defensive reinforcements then they may well look to add a midfield general. Players like Sandro and Lewis Holtby have failed to make a lasting impression in the holding role in midfield over the last couple of years despite flickering brightly.
But it’s clearly one of the most important roles in the team and Tottenham need to get it right long term.
It would be crazy if the ex-Saints manager didn’t benefit in some way from the apparent firesale that is going on down on the south coast right now.
With Calum Chambers the latest to leave the club Tottenham have precious few options left but one of them could be a perfect addition – Morgan Schneiderlin.
An excellent team player who has grown into The Premier League to become one of its most consistent performers. Those performances saw him gatecrash The World Cup where he also had some impressive game time.
At just 24 he’s already very accomplished player and the next step – a move to a bigger club – seems inevitable. Tottenham have been linked, along with Arsenal. But Spurs are currently favourites, with bookmaker Skybet, to sign the player this summer if he does leave his current club.
At odds of 1/1 (evens) Tottenham look well-placed to make Schneiderlin one of their big signings of the summer. We think that he’d be a super signing for the club to quicken the step of the midfield.
Let’s take a look at the lad in action. Tottenham fans: better than what you currently have?Follow @soccersweep10
