Tottenham Hotspur fans dreading the idea of signing Stoke City’s Shaqiri

Tottenham Hotspur fans have been reflecting on their season, which once again ended without any silverware being won.

Despite this, the North London outfit managed to secure Champions League football for the third consecutive season.

In addition, the team finished third behind champions Manchester City and second-placed Manchester United in the table.

Harry Kane continued his goalscoring heroics by netting 30 in the top flight, but it was not enough to secure a third Golden Boot award.

Instead, that gong went to Liverpool star Mohamed Salah, who ended the campaign with 32 league goals to his name.

Ahead of the new season, in which Tottenham will compete in a brand new stadium adjacent to White Hart Lane, rumours have begum rumbling regarding potential summer signings.

A surprise name has emerged from the rumour mill in the form of Stoke City attacker Xherdan Shaqiri, who could be looking for pastures new after suffering relegation to the Championship.

The winger – valued at £16.2m by Transfermarkt – scored eight goals and created seven assists in 36 Premier League outings for the Potters this season.

According to Teamtalk, the North London outfit have enquired about the Switzerland international’s availability.

The report claims that Spurs could potentially snap up Shaqiri for £12m as there is a clause in his contract that comes into effect due to Stoke’s relegation from the Premier League.

It is believed that Pochettino has been an admirer of the winger for some time, but plenty of fans do not share the same opinion.
