The transfer window slams shut in 14 days and Tottenham still have a lot of work to do.
Pochettino will be the first to admit that Spurs still need to make adjustments to their squad before the club head into a crowded schedule this season. Tottenham are back in the Champions League and they need to ensure the squad is in place to cope with the extra demand on the players shoulders. The London Evening Standard suggest Pochettino may want up to three more new signings. Here are three adjustments I’d love to see Mauricio make in the coming weeks.
1 – Splash the cash to sign Youri Tielemans
In a market that sees value almost double year on year, Tottenham would be wise to invest in some of Europe’s best young talent in the coming summers. One player I have always admired and feel would be a great fit for the club is Anderlecht midfielder Tielemans. Admittedly my 1st hand knowledge of the midfielder comes purely from his European outings, Tielemans is rated very highly all across Europe, with many regarding him as the best young central midfielder in the country. He is only 19 but what I like about Tielemans is his technical maturity beyond his years, something that allows the Belgian to play in a number of midfield roles. He is more than capable as a defensive midfielder, but he can play more advanced too. I’m not sure how much he would cost but Spurs are yet to invest heavily this summer, albeit making a couple of useful additions in Victor Wanyama and Vincent Janssen. Tielemans has the potential to be worth an incredible amount in a couple of years and be well out of Spurs’ price range. With Champions League football, a quality manager and a new stadium incoming, I think Tottenham have the muscle to tempt Tielemans to the club ahead of Europe’s powerhouses who will not be able to offer as much game time as we could at this vital developmental stage of his career.
