Five reasons Tottenham need to sign this Barcelona ace

Tottenham are still in pursuit of the league title, or at least the top four, and will need to take full advantage of the rest of the transfer window if they are to give themselves the best chance of qualifying for next season’s Champions league.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side have had some of the best individual players of the season thus far and are continuing to impress large swathes of English football fans with their flowing football and highly talented youngsters, who are playing with maturity far above their age.

Harry Kane has returned to his exceptional form of last season and the young striker is showing himself to be one of the best forwards in Europe, unfortunately, it doesn’t mean that Daniel Levy can avoid opening his wallet in the remainder of the window with every club looking to push for transfers.

With that in mind here are FIVE reasons that Sandro Ramirez of Barcelona would be the ideal acquisition for Spurs…

Munir troubles

Munir El Haddadi

Its pretty unlikely that Munir or Sandro will step into a starting role while Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez are around, so it makes it even more relevant that Sandro has lost the role of first back-up to Munir in recent weeks.

Sandro, perhaps, because of the potential for a January move, must be getting frustrated at his lack of starts.

Tactical manoeuvres..?


Pochettino is a tactically adept manager and he would surely be enticed by the tactical flexibility of Sandro.

The Spanish 20 year old can play anywhere across the forward line and would allow Christian Eriksen to play in a No.10 role, if desired, by filling in on the left hand side.

Educated by the best

Footballing education doesn’t get any better than that on offer at ‘La Masia’, and having played alongside Messi is the footballing equivalent of a first class honours from Harvard.

Sandro isn’t going to reach the heights of the Argentine, but, like so many Barcelona youngsters, he will have learnt a great deal from his time at the club.

Squad profiling

Pochettino is becoming increasingly renowned for his ability to develop young players and Sandro would fit perfectly in with that squad profile.

Having players around of a similar age and ambition in the game can only help them to settle.

2020s in sight

Tottenham’s squad is built for the future and has immense potential throughout.

From Dele Alli and Eric Dier to Kane and Lamela, Spurs will not be peaking at squad until a few years time and Sandro would join a squad of immense potential.
