Mauricio Pochettino faces an all important transfer period which will see if Spurs can replicate the brilliant season which just unfolded. With Champions League, squad has to be revamped and world class acquisitions are a must if a trophy is to be brought back to White Hart Lane. The Argentinian has in the past made some shrewd signings which proved to be decisive.
Many positions need reinforcements and one of the most needed is in the attacking department. Along with Kane and Alli, goals have to come from another source and the likes of Son, Lamela and Chadli have been decent but not world class. One name that has come up in the recent days is of the Palermo attacker, Franco Vazquez. The 27-year old might be an unknown quantity back in the Premier League but Serie A has been lucky to have a player of his abilities for so long.
Vazquez came into prominence when he secured a move to Palermo from Belgrano in 2012. He was sent out on loan to La Liga but failed to make an impact. Since 2013, Vazquez has become an instrumental figure for the Sicilian outfit and his partnership with Paulo Dybala in the 2014-15 season was one of the best in the league in recent times. In that season, Palermo scored 38 goals and the duo had a hand in 35 of them.
El Mudo as he is affectionately called is a left footed player whose primary position is the no.10 role but can play on both the wings and also as a second striker. This versatility is a must for a player to succeed at the highest level and his work rate makes him the perfect player to play under Pochettino. His age means he can become a senior player in the squad and with the big number of matches in the next season, signing the Italy international makes complete sense.
Vazquez, Alli and Kane can form a lethal trio which can become a nightmare for any defence. He has been one of the best when it comes to providing assists in the past couple of years in the Italian League and he has a good 3-4 years left in him. Vazquez will also cost less and this is the kind of shrewd business that will take Spurs a long way and make the project under Pochettino a success.
