Three Replacements Tottenham Can Look Into As Moussa Sissoko’s Replacement

After narrowly missing out on the Premier League trophy in the previous season, Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham Hotspur are far away from the summit this season as well and their recent loss at Anfield has pushed them away a little bit more. The manager will be satisfied with the way the team has performed in recent times but he will be distraught with the form of his summer signings. Pochettino spent a decent amount of money on improving his squad at the start of the season but not many players have been able to cement a place in the starting XI this season.

One such player who has not been impressive this season is French star Moussa Sissoko. The former Newcastle man moved to the Lane on summer deadline day and was expected to take Spurs to next level. However, he has not been able to settle down at the London club and has already been linked with an exit. The manager is ready to sell him if his valuation is met and this might see Pochettino jump into the transfer market again for additions. Here are 3 players who can replace Moussa Sissoko in the squad and offer you the perfect tips to place your bets at the end of the season:

Riyad Mahrez (Leicester City):

Though not as versatile as Sissoko, Mahrez is more than a decent replacement for the Frenchman at Tottenham. Having helped the Foxes to a title win, and also helping himself to the ‘Player of the Season’ award in the Premier League, Mahrez is one of the most exciting players in the English league and was a target for Spurs in the summer. Claudio Ranieri managed to keep hold of him for another season but with Leicester struggling at the moment, to stay alive in the Premier League, Mahrez might be looking to leave at the end of the season. Surely, he would be an excellent option for Pochettino, especially with the player’s experience of winning the title.

Mahrez would be a great signing for Tottenham

Yacine Brahimi (FC Porto):

One of the most gifted players in the world of football, Brahimi has been a target for a number of Premier League clubs over the years and it might be time for Tottenham Hotspur to spend on him. He has been in sublime form this season in the domestic league and also in Europe for the Portuguese outfit and is a decent fit for the system at the Lane. At 27, he is entering the best years of his career as a footballer and it might be the perfect time for Spurs to lure him to the English capital this summer.

Isco (Real Madrid):

Another player who can replace Sissoko in the first team at White Hart Lane is Real Madrid star Isco. Though not as effective on the wing as Sissoko, Isco is surely a huge upgrade on the Frenchman as he is a slightly more gifted player, who has proven himself at the highest level. Isco, in his time at the Bernabeu, has won almost everything possible but is currently unsettled at the club and is looking for an exit. Spurs are one of the many teams who are ready to make a move for him. Given his age, a move to Spurs seems to be the right option and surely, he will be a superb replacement for Sissoko at the Lane.

What a signing Isco would be for Spurs!
