With the January transfer window well and truly open, Spurs are free to do business after a summer in which Lilywhites fans, quite rightly, felt a little underwhelmed. While teams around them were snapping up big name stars and creating a buzz, Tottenham’s arrivals were, although solid, a little unspectacular, which may be addressed this month.
One player on Mauricio Pochettino’s radar appears to be 19-year-old PSG midfielder Adrien Rabiot, who is largely known as one of Europe’s best young playmakers. As well as being a decent passer, the teenager can finish, as he showed against Bastia. The silky starlet ghosted into the box to slid home a left-footed effort in the first 45, and surely ‘Poch’ will be even more keen on a loan deal for him once he sees this!
