Does Tottenham Need This £35m Rated Attacker From Championship?

The Argentine manager Mauricio Pochettino is in the market to strengthen his squad in order to compete in the Champions League. It is safe to say that the young and dynamic squad of Tottenham Hotspur will have to train more than what they did last year. There is no doubt that his side was simply the best last season, but the arrival of several top notch managers has set the bar up high.

Currently, the squad will be travelling to play their pre-season games and soon after that, the side will be playing their first Premier League game. The first stop for the squad will be Goodison Park, where they will be battling against Ronald Koeman’s men Everton. Now, as stated earlier, it is understood that Pochettino will have to make some alterations in the squad, and so far, he has signed two players, namely, Victor Wanyama from Southampton and Vincent Janssen from AZ Alkmaar.

The manager identified the key holes in the squad quickly and found the best possible replacements. Now, it is understood that after playing the midweek games in the Champions League, the players will demand more rest and for that, the manager will have to add some faces. Not many players have been linked with Tottenham, but if the rumours are to be believed, then the Lilly-Whites are currently chasing the Arsenal target Moussa Sissoko, who plays for the Championship side Newcastle United with a reported £35m price tag.

The Frenchman, who worked as a tank in the recently concluded Euro 2016 has caught the eyes of many clubs and due to the lack of top flight football, the player might look for a move.

As stated, Tottenham are in the chase, but do they really need Moussa Sissoko?

Well, to be fairly honest here, we have some mixed emotions here. The 26-year-old French international is one of the most hard-working individuals in the industry and letting him go might hurt the team at some point. What Moussa is known for is his tireless work-rate on the field. The versatile midfielder can operate the game from almost every position in the midfield and that’s what makes him a player to mark.

Besides that, due to his never ending stamina, the 26-year-old can work like a horse. He can easily track up and down the field to support the team and that could easily help Pochettino next season. He could easily be bought as the Lilly-Whites can offer him Champions League football. It was earlier reported that the White Hart Lane outfit was targeting Moussa’s teammate Wijnaldum, but the Dutch international has opted to go to Anfield instead.

With Wijnaldum gone, we do feel that Sissoko could become a pretty good signing for the team, but besides all of that, what Tootenham cannot offer him is first team football. The Lilly-Whites have bought Wanyama, and besides him, they have Dembele, Mason, Alli, N’jie, Eriksen and the potential new signing Georges-Kévin N’Koudou. So talking practically, there is no real space for the player in the squad.

If Pochettino somehow manages to sign him up, then the midfield will get congested. The side already have players, who are fighting for the first team and bringing Sissoko might hamper other players’ chance.
