Tottenham’s first summer signing?
If Tottenham do bring Mauricio Pochettino to the the club they will finally have flipped the nuts on the manager front. After fumbling around for managers since the departure of Harry Redknapp we genuinely believe that this guy is the man to take Spurs forward. Mark our words.
Champions League qualification in his first season is a big ask but there is nobody that we would will prefer to be taking the reins at Tottenham than Pochettino.
Immediately there will be links with Southampton players as the new man might well try to snare a couple of the biggest stars from his current club.
But latest reports suggest that his first signing could well be a striker. The Daily Mail says:
Tottenham Hotspur are set to table an offer for Standard Liege striker Michy Batshuayi.
The Belgium Under 21 forward, 20, has been linked with Arsenal, Everton and Swansea already this summer and would be following in the footsteps of success stories such as Christian Benteke and Romelu Lukaku, who hit a hat-trick in the 5-1 friendly win over Luxembourg on Monday.
However, Spurs chief Daniel Levy is ready to make a bid for the highly-rated frontman, who has an £8million release clause, depending on Mauricio Pochettino’s approval.
Tottenham won’t be the only club to show a serious interest in the player so they will have to move decisively.
Spurs definitely need strikers and we think this guy could represent an excellent start to the summer spend. He is the sort of player to add firepower, dynamism and mobility to the side.
Let’s take a look at him in action. Tottenham fans: should you be investing in young players like this or going for more established older stars?
