A Dream Tottenham XI Featuring Spurs’ Top Transfer Targets
Tottenham under Mauricio Pochettino looks like a side capable of beating the best teams in the world at the moment and rightly so. Not only has the Argentine coach helped them achieve Champions League football but has also made Spurs an intimidating side to play against.
Pochettino would love to add some more players to his already talented side in the upcoming January transfer window. Let’s take a look at how Spurs could line up with some good signings after the January window.
Hugo Lloris (GK)
The French shot-stopper remains the undisputed No.1 at the club and will remain to be so for the foreseeable future.
Kieran Trippier (RB)
The 27-year-old has featured regularly under Pochettino this season despite the club signing Serge Aurier from PSG in the summer. The English right-back should keep his place in the side thanks to his consistent performances.
Davinson Sanchez (CB)
The Colombian centre-back was signed from Ajax in the summer as a successor to the unsettled Toby Alderweireld. The 21-year-old has already started in 4 Premier League games and has looked solid in partnering Jan Vertonghen. He could feature more regularly if Toby Alderweireld leaves in January.
Jan Vertonghen (CB)
The 30-year-old Belgian centre-back, who became his country’s most capped player last week has been the leader at the back for the last couple of seasons and is one of Spurs’ best players.
Ben Davies (LB)
The Welsh international has done extremely well in the place of the injured Danny Rose and hasn’t quite gotten the credit for his displays. Davies’ strong performances could continue to keep out Rose even after he recovers.
Harry Winks (CM)
The 21-year-old got his first cap for England playing against Lithuania last week and was one of the best players on that day. The midfielder showed excellent technicality and looked like a matured player.
Victor Wanyama (CM)
Wanyama has been a brilliant player for Spurs ever since he joined them and he wouldn’t be replaced from the Spurs line-up.
Max Meyer (RW)
The 22-year-old Schalke winger’s contract is set to expire next summer and Schalke risk losing the German next summer for free. Spurs could land the youngster if they approach the Bundesliga side in January. Meyer is clearly a talent will only add depth to the side.
Dele Alli (CAM)
It’s quite astonishing to see the kind of talent Alli is and the fact that he is just 21 makes it even more astonishing. The youngster is still maturing and could soon be world become world-class under Pochettino.
Andre Gomes (LW)
Although he might sound like an unnecessary addition to the side at the moment, the £22.5m Portuguese is definitely good enough to make it to the Spurs XI. His experience of playing with Barcelona will only add to the Tottenham team if Pochettino can bring him in January.
Harry Kane (ST)
The Englishman goal machine has been a nightmare to the opposition once again this season and is showing no signs of stopping anytime soon. There simply isn’t a better striker in Europe at the moment than Harry Kane.
