Despite losing the title to Leicester City at the beginning of May and the second position to Arsenal on the last day of the season, It can be said that Tottenham did incredibly well last season. And according to various reports, manager Mauricio Pochettino is planning to make the squad even better in the coming seasons.
Until now, Tottenham have completed the signings of Victor Waynama from Southampton and Vincent Janssen from AZ Alkmaar. Both of them had wonderful seasons with their respective teams last season. Janssen was the top goalscorer in the Dutch Eredivisie and Waynama had a great season under Ronald Koeman at Southampton.
But this may not be all. According to different reports, Pochettino is not yet done in the transfer market. After a disappointing season under Guardiola at Bayern Munich and after the arrival of Renato Sanches, Mario Gotze is not happy to stay at Allianz Arena claims BILD, a very trusted German newspaper. Apparently, Gotze is likely to be Pochettino’s next capture for Tottenham.
But if not Gotze, according to Skysports Pochettino has backup plans. The other names on the list are Yunus Malli and Sofiane Boufal. Malli had a great seasons with Mainz last year and according to reports, Tottenham are interested in signing him. And the other target, Sofiae Boufal, had a good season with Lille too, but he was ‘eclipsed’ by the five-star-performances of PSG’s more expensive players.
Should Pochettino be able to achieve his goal in the transfer market, Tottenham will be giving themselves a good chance for success not just in the league next season but in the Champions League as well.
It is a good thing that Pochettino knows playing in the Champions League means a bigger squad is needed and as such he is working to add to the current team. Which in all honesty will be necessary if Tottenham do not want to see themselves ousted from the top four next season.
With Chelsea, City, Manchester United, West Ham and others doing everything to bring in superstars, Tottenham can’t afford to be left behind.
