Tottenham are ready to dip into the market now that the transfer window has officially opened.
Mauricio Pochettino is expected to move for a playmaker, and possibly a striker and a right-back depending on Kyle Walker’s situation.
The Frenchman’s falling out with Jurgen Klopp means there is no way back for him at Liverpool, but he has been a resounding success at Crystal Palace. The centre-back won Club Player of the Year despite featuring only eight times.
Having helped the Eagles to survival, the 27-year-old is valued at £30milion, meaning he would equal Spurs’ record fees paid out for Moussa Sissoko and Erik Lamela if the move were to materialise.
Palace are unable to keep him because he is outside of their budget, but should they wish, Spurs could afford him.
It would seemingly spell the end of Austria international Kevin Wimmer’s time in north London. The defender has failed to establish himself and has even seen youngster Cameron Carter-Vickers preferred by Pochettino.
