Tottenham finished third in the Premier League last season, in what was one of the Londoners’ most successful campaigns ever. But, in order to take home the Premier League crown next season, Mauricio. Pochettino must explore the transfer market.
Look no further than the EUROs. Group B, including England, Wales, Russia and Slovakia, boast some of the top young talent at the tournament.
For the last decade, Tottenham have balanced around the edge of the top four in the standings. By retaining their top players and making a few keen transactions in the off-season, Spurs have a legitimate chance to win the title.
Plenty of players from Group B could boost Tottenham’s chances. These are the FIVE stars in the grouping that Pochettino must target…
The Russian forward could be the ‘proper striker’, as Mauricio Pochettino titles it, that Tottenham is looking for. A solid finisher with the ability to hold the ball, Kokorin is largely involved in the Russian attack.
Tottenham targeted Henderson earlier this year, and if Spurs acquired him, the squad would have three of England’s top young midfielders (Eric Dier and Dele Alli are already present). Henderson won’t play in the Champions League with Liverpool next season, and him joining Tottenham would give Spurs another athletic midfielder.
Only 20-years-old, Fulham’s Williams rose through the ranks with Dele Alli. Pairing up again at Tottenham would infuse blistering speed in the attack.
A Sturridge-Kane combination would potentially vault Tottenham as Premier League favourites. Sturridge is still only 26, and though he has battled injuries, scored eight goals in just 14 games last season.
Another young midfielder with boundless potential, Duda has been showcasing his talents for Slovakia in the EUROs. Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino likes his squad and doesn’t want to spend loads of money this off-season, so picking up a relatively cheap but quality player in Duda is something Pochettino should consider.
