Where Spurs can upgrade this summer— part one
Unless Daniel Levy has some obscure plan to force Mauricio Pochettino out of the club this summer, it’s likely the Argentine coach is going to be afforded some long overdue funds for player recruitment.
Throw in the revenue for the imminent departures of Christian Eriksen and Toby Alderweireld— plus the Champions League money —we might start bandying around terms like ‘war chest’ and ‘spending spree’ in the coming weeks.
But let’s not get carried away.
Here are a couple of areas where Spurs could upgrade:
Amazingly it looks like England’s World Cup hero Kieran Trippier might be off to Serie A this summer. Unlike a visit to www.choiceonlinecasino.com, Trippier has had a fairly insipid season at club level. But that hasn’t stopped the advances of Italian giants Juventus and Napoli— according to reports. Imagine. While most Spurs fans would jump at the chance to rid themselves of an underperforming defender for maximum profit, it does leave somewhat of a hole at right-back. With Pochettino’s faith in Kyle Walkers-Peters and Serge Aurier at varying degrees of non-existent, something’s got to give.
Possible upgrades: Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Djibril Sidibe, Ricardo Pereira
If there’s one glaring issue one could point to at the tail-end of Spurs’ season, it’s that they looked awfully light in midfield. With Mousa Dembele’s Far East departure in January and injuries to Harry Winks and Moussa Sissoko, the North London club’s core looked decidedly threadbare. Either as a midfielder anchors, or powerful, box-to-box enforcers, neither Eric Dier or Victor Wanyama look quite up to the required standard anymore. It probably says a lot that Sissoko is now Spurs’ most important midfielder. Looking at betting sites in south africa, that needs to change.
Possible upgrades: Tanguy Ndombele, Wilfred Ndidi, Youri Tielemans
