Mauricio Pochettino and his Tottenham side are vulnerable right now. While they are picking up results, and can give anyone a game on their day, you just don’t know what you are going to get from them from one week to the next.
And it’s this inconsistency which is making Tottenham thrilling yet difficult to support. Pochettino was brought in to progress the team and that means consistency.
We believe that many of the problems stem from the midfield. Tottenham have too much dead wood in their engine room and they need to bring in another absolute belter of player – an ever-present who can give Tottenham better rhythm.
Morgan Schneiderlin is the man for the job and he will surely move over the next two windows. Latest reports suggest that a transfer could occur sooner rather than later:
Southampton are increasingly concerned that Morgan Schneiderlin is unwilling to commit to a new contract – and could leave the Saints for Tottenham or Arsenal.
The south coast club have offered the French midfielder a deal of around £50,000-per-week, but the player is reluctant to sign and there is belief he could attempt to force a move.
As you can see, Tottenham will have to offer the Frenchman in excess of 50k a week to get him on board. But it’s peanuts for the sort of service that he can provide over the next 5-7 years.
At just 25 he’s got years left in the tank. He’s a French international regular now and looks to have added some goals to his game of late. He’s injured at present but this is a fight with Arsenal that Spurs simply have to win.
Let’s see him in action. Tottenham fans: worth the cash?
