January could be a big month for Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino as late weekend reports suggest that big name departures could be the catalyst for the influx of new blood.
The Mirror states that Tottenham director of football Franco:
Baldini is attempting to off-load Emmanuel Adebayor, Jan Vertonghen, Aaron Lennon and Mousa Dembele
According to the source this will clear the decks for the a new spine of a side consisting of some excellent purchases.
Nothing new in this link. But with Arsenal keen on Newcastle’s Moussa Sissoko, according to substantial reports, then Tottenham may head the queue for the brilliant Frenchman. At 25 there is no question that Schneiderlin would improve the midfield. Coming into his prime.
Another Saint. Pochettino has regularly been linked with this lad but he still hasn’t played a game for the club since serious injury last season and it may well be too early in his recovery o take a punt in January.
More quality and consistency is needed at the back and the latest target is said to be Albiol. Capped 50 times by Spain, Albiol currently plays for Napoli after a long stint with Real Madrid. At 29 he’s safe as houses but may take time to adapt from the stark tempo change between the game in Italy and England.
Let’s see Albiol in action. Tottenham fans: keen?
