Tottenham Hotspur have been flying high this season and look the most likely team to give Chelsea a run for their money at the top of the Premier League. Built on the solid backline that has the best defensive record in the English top-flight and an excellent attacking force that has been firing on all cylinders, Mauricio Pochettino’s team are making a name for themselves as one of the better teams in England.
However, an early exit from their Champions League campaign remains a blemish on what has been a near-perfect season for Tottenham. But it looks certain that they will get another shot in the premiere contest in the European football coming season. And to mount a better campaign in Europe and strengthen their claims for the Premier League title in the upcoming season, reinforcements over the summer transfer window will be of paramount importance.
One player who has been credited with serious interest from Tottenham is Leicester City’s Riyad Mahrez. The Algerian international, who has become one of the most sought-after wingers in England, was a subject of an interest from Mauricio Pochettino in the winter window and Spurs could very well end up signing him over the summer.
Here we give you three reasons why such this move could work wonders for the North Londoners:
An Alternate Dimension in Attack
It is no secret that Tottenham have been on the lookout for a wide player since the start of the season and had also made an offer for Crystal Palace wide-man Wilfried Zaha but no deal was struck.
In Mahrez, Tottenham will get one of the best wingers in the Premier League. The 25-year old is fast, great on the ball and an excellent finisher. He can stretch defences wide and can also cut-in from the flanks as well. His direct running and ability to get past defenders with relative ease will be a great asset to Tottenham, who lack a natural winger in their ranks. Bringing in the Leicester City man could provide Tottenham with an alternate dimension in attack and turn them into a stronger force.
