Spurs will play in the elite European competition after six long years thanks to an enthralling season under Mauricio Pochettino. The Argentine now has to work extra time to bring in the right blend of players with a strong mentality to challenge on all fronts. This cannot be a one off season and with all the rivals expected to spend big, Spurs have to be smart in the transfer market in this modern age of football.
One area which looks thin on paper is the attacking department which relies heavily on Harry Kane. If the three Lions star gets injured, the question is where would the goals come from this young side. Dele Alli though being exceptional is too young to be burdened with pressure and apart from these two, no other player has contributed much to improve the goal tally. The player whose signing is looking imminent with each passing day is of the Palermo attacker, Franco Vazquez.
The 28 year old has been the mainstay for the Sicilian outfit and is one of the best players in the Serie A. His signing will surely be a huge boost for the Club and Vazquez being a versatile player can play as a second striker and also on the wings which means, he can complement the current squad really well. With him, Son, Chadli and Lamela, Spurs can have real world class depth at the club. Let’s see how Spurs will lineup fitting in Franco Vazquez.
Between the posts, Spurs have one of the best keepers in the world in Hugo Lloris. All the rumours surrounding him are of no truth and he will be an important member under Pochettino’s project at the lane. In Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld, Spurs have a solid centre back pairing which has performed brilliantly till now and as a result of which Spurs had the meanest defence in the league last season. Kyle Walker and Danny Rose have made their positions theirs after a stellar campaign which will see them playing on the flanks for the three lions.
Mousa Dembele has been one of the best rated players for Spurs and will continue to start in midfield next season. Eric Dier was another youngster who has taken great strides forward. Considering the number of games that are going to be played next season, game time won’t be an issue for the Englishman.
Behind the striker, Spurs have a plethora of talent. Christian Eriksen will play on the left wing while Dele Alli will continue in his no.10 role where he has been highly successful. Franco Vazquez can operate from the right and can form a lethal partnership with Kyle Walker. With Chadli and Lamela on the bench, Spurs will be sorted in the attacking department.
Harry Kane will look to continue his fantastic form and challenge for the golden boot again. This position needs strengthening as Son has struggled to impress at the lane but if Berahino or Berardi comes in the summer, Spurs will look like a dangerous side who can challenge for the title again.
