Tottenham completing £80m double swoop of this PL star duo would make them a lethal attacking unit next season

Tottenham opinion: Spurs want Bournemouth duo – Good move?

According to a report in the Sun, Tottenham are eyeing up an £80m double swoop for Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson and David Brooks during this summer transfer window.

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has put the duo on his transfer hitlist, as he aims to bolster his squad after the Champions League Final on the 1st of June. (h/t Sun)

Tottenham haven’t made a single signing in the past two transfer windows, and have done incredibly well to stay in the top-four in the league and reach the final of the Champions League.

However, Pochettino has received a green signal from chairman Daniel Levy to overhaul the squad during this summer transfer window. (h/t Sun)

Here’s why signing the Bournemouth duo would be a step in the right direction:

Both Wilson and Brooks are quality options in the forward line

Tottenham have one of the best strikers in the world in Harry Kane. However, they lack a proper backup striker in the squad, who can either play with the England captain or replace him in other situations.

Thus, it makes sense for the club to sign a player who has a proven record in the Premier League. For that reason, signing Callum Wilson makes sense.

The Bournemouth striker has been one of the sought-after marksmen in the league, since the Cherries’ promotion to the big time.

The 27-year-old has now made his debut for the England national team as well, which further goes to show the quality he possesses.

Moving forward, Christian Eriksen’s future in North London is in grave doubt. With Real Madrid and Barcelona lurking, it may be an impossible task for the club to keep hold of the Danish international. (h/t Express)

Therefore, they would do the right thing by signing David Brooks. The Welshman had a fantastic breakout season after his exploits at Sheffield United a year before.

He possesses the qualities to play that number 10 role and replace Eriksen in this Spurs team.
