Abdoulaye Doucoure has become the latest Tottenham transfer target to be branded with the Moussa Sissoko comparison, as fans are adamant they don’t want the Watford man.
According to reports, the North Londoners are “monitoring” Watford midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure ahead of the summer window.
The towering French midfielder was the standout performer for Watford this season, and Mauricio Pochettino is on the hunt for some fresh midfield talent, with Mousa Dembele and Victor Wanyama both likely to leave the club this summer.
Doucoure will likely be the subject of interest from several clubs after his incredible season, but Tottenham fans don’t seem too happy about the links.
Fans are desperate for the club to show some ambition and replace the likes of Dembele with equal or better talents, and Doucoure just isn’t that.
The 25 year-old has had a fabulous season, grabbing seven goals and three assists from midfield, while also averaging 2.1 tackles, 1.5 interceptions and 1.5 clearances per game.
That isn’t stopping the comparisons to regular scapegoat Moussa Sissoko though, and some of the best Twitter reactions can be found below…
No thanks Ricky.
