Tottenham Opinion: Should Spurs consider a move for Mariano Diaz?
The report also adds that the Argentine manager has given the green light for the negotiations with the Madrid outcast.
The 25-year-old failed to exceed the expectations. In fact, the former Lyon star was able to only to garner 3 goals in 13 matches, coming on as a substitute on 11 occasions.
Diaz progressed through the youth ranks of Los Blancos and also had a great impact with the Castilla side, bagging a galore of goals.
His stellar season with Ligue 1 outfit proved to be the reason for his return to the La Liga last summer.
Why should Spurs move for Diaz?
The North London outfit has had a historic Champions League run last term, eventually ending as the runners-up.
Pochettino also made an emphatic statement by inspiring his side to finish inside the top four of the Premier League table, regardless of the fact that they didn’t spend a dime in the past few transfer windows.
With that being said, Spurs must focus on solidifying their attacking line-up. Harry Kane continues to be the greatest asset for both the Three Lions and the North London club and yet, his injury woes in the past season turned out to be detrimental to his growth.
Meanwhile, his shocking inclusion in the Champions League final incurred too much disapproval, as the 25-year-old failed to spark off any kind of impact throughout the game.
Spurs should find a quality second-string to England’s skipper and Diaz fits the bill all day. Prior to his La Liga switch, Diaz was quite lethal in Bruno Genesio’s three-man attack alongside Nabil Fekir and Memphis Depay.
In the process, the Spaniard racked up 21 goals and 6 assists and ended up being the Ligue 1’s sixth top goal-scorer ahead of the likes of Radamel Falcao and Mario Balotelli.

At the same time, Under the guidance of Pochettino, who has forged so many players to big forces, Diaz can bring out his A game.
Having already acquired the promising talents like Jack Clarke and Tanguy Ndombele, Spurs are making their intentions clear as they look to end their trophy drought this season.
And their transfer spree should prolong with the signing of Diaz, who can use this opportunity to reinstate his career.
