Four experienced stars Spurs should target in January
Tottenham Hotspur’s worrying start to the season took another hit on Saturday as their poor run at Stamford Bridge continued with a 2-1 defeat to Chelsea.
The Lilywhites are now seven points off the division’s summit and amid a run of just one win in their last ten games across all competitions, incurring four defeats in the process.
Mauricio Pochettino is famed for his willingness to give chances to young players, whilst his philosophy capitalises on the energy, fearlessness and dynamism they tend to provide.
That has left Spurs with the youngest squad age in the Premier League and although many have heaped Pochettino with due praise for deviating from the division’s norms, such a policy does have its consequences.
Indeed, Tottenham’s title bid fell apart last season as the pressure finally told on the young squad and although there have been over factors, Spurs’ youthful cast are struggling to meet expectations this year.
Balance is key in the beautiful game, so its time Poch attempted to find a better equilibrium by bringing in some more experienced stars who can help lead and develop his younger players.
With that in mind, Football FanCast have picked out four experienced stars the north Londoners should target in the January transfer window.
