Revealed: Spurs fans divided over which CB Pochettino should swoop for

According to recent reports from Mirror Football, Tottenham Hotspur are eyeing Swansea City’s Alfie Mawson and Middlesbrough’s Ben Gibson as potential replacements for Kevin Wimmer.

The north London club are ready to offload the Austrian international, who has made just 15 Premier League appearances during his two years at White Hart Lane, for around £20million.

And it appears Mauricio Pochettino wants to sign an English replacement, with Mawson and Gibson in his thoughts.


Both centre-halves have represented England at U21 level and both were involved in the Premier League’s relegation scrap last season, Mawson’s Swans succeeding where Gibson’s Boro failed in avoiding the drop, so there really isn’t much to choose between them.

With that in mind, we asked Spurs fans earlier this week who they’d prefer to see their club sign this summer and rather incredibly, our poll turned out to be a dead heat with each centre-back claiming 50% of the vote.

Whichever defender Pochettino brings to north London this summer, it’s bound to divide opinion. But which side of the debate do you stand on? Let us know by commenting below!
