So the transfer season is over and the London club Tottenham Hotspur have done some serious business in the past couple of days. The Lilly-Whites, who were serious title challengers last season, have had an average start to their new campaign as they opened their tally for the season with a draw against Everton and further went on to pick all the three points against Crystal Palace and then again played a 1-1 draw against Liverpool.

Soon after the game, Pochettino hinted that he might sign a new player as he mentioned that his side needs a pacy attacker. A couple of weeks back , they saw their offer being rejected by the Eagles for their star man Wilfried Zaha, but, on the other hand, they completed the deal to sign Marseille 21-year-old winger, Kevin N’Koudou.

 

In terms of outgoing, the club has allowed Alex Pritchard and Federico Fazio to leave and very recently, the manager sold both Nacer Chadli and Ryan Mason to West Brom and Hull City respectively. Chadli, who joined the Lilly-Whites back in 2013 completed his move which is reported to be around £13m, while Mason joined the Tigers for a fee alleged to be slightly over £10m.

With these players gone, Tottenham needed some reinforcements to fill the void, and the club managed to sign Moussa Sissoko on the deadline day. However, we present you two players, who Pochettino Should have tried to sign along with the French International on the deadline day.

Isco-

The reports from the Daily Mirror have claimed that Mauricio Pochettino, was to plan an audacious loan bid for Real Madrid’s out of favour midfielder, Isco. The 24-year-old attacking midfielder is only a second or third choice player for Real Madrid, hence a move to the White Hart Lane might have been on the cards.

The Spaniard is known to be one of the brightest prospects in the sport and to be honest, every team would love to have him on their side. He is known for his versatility and thanks to that, he can operate the game from almost every midfield position, and that can be utilized very swiftly. Furthermore, the 24-year-old would bring a bag full of Champions League experience to the young Tottenham side, so it is safe to say that it would have been a perfect move for the side.

  • Ivan Perisic-

The 27-year-old has really impressed every footballing spectator with his wonderful performance in the European Championship, where he scored 2 goals in four games. Now, if the reports are to believed, then the Lilly-Whites were amongst those many clubs, who were chasing the Croatian sensation, but Inter Milan have somehow managed to keep a firm hold on their prized possession.

Perisic, a winger by nature, is known for his attacking prowess and besides that, his playmaking skill is something that can be heavily utilized by the manager in the Champions League. Despite being a winger, the Croatian scored 7 goals in Serie A last season and further went on to bag six assists. He is a direct midfielder, who loves to take on his opponents with his skills and pace and that is why he could have been a perfect option for the manager.

Spurs transfer news: Steve Bruce eyes Tottenham defender Danny Rose

Newly appointed Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce is interested in signing a left-back, with Danny Rose catching his attention, according to the Daily Star.

The Tottenham defender did not travel with the side for the pre-season Asia tour and will try to finalise a move away from the club in the summer.

The 29-year-old could be the second full-back to leave Spurs this summer, with Kieran Trippier joining Atletico Madrid a few days back.

The left-back was the first choice last season under Mauricio Pochettino, and selling him would leave us with Ben Davies as the senior player for the position.

Bruce to monitor situation till the end of the month

The report claims that Paris Saint-Germain are also interested in the 29-year-old English defender, and Bruce will wait until the end of the month before launching a £15m bid.

Newcastle have sold Ayoze Perez to Leicester City this summer, and Bruce expects a decent transfer kitty to be made available (h/t Daily Star).

Rose could still do a decent job for most of the clubs in the Premier League, and it will be interesting to see where he heads off to before the campaign starts.

Spurs transfer news: Vincent Janssen close to sealing Monterrey exit

Football.london (h/t Sun) reports that Dutch striker Vincent Janssen is set to leave Tottenham for Monterrey.

The 25-year-old joined Spurs from AZ Alkmaar in 2016 for £17m (h/t Sun) but failed to light up the scoring charts.

The Dutch striker was sent on loan to Fenerbahce but had to deal with injuries while he barely played for the senior side last season.

The report claims that Janssen is set for a medical on Monday, and the deal should be completed in the coming days.

A tough time coming to an end?

Janssen was one of the top strikers in the Eredivisie when we signed him but things just did not work for him at the club.

The 25-year-old’s commitment cannot be questioned but he just could not perform under Mauricio Pochettino.

Selling the Dutch striker would take wages off the bill and hopefully, we can recoup a decent sum from the deal.

Janssen had his trouble with injuries and spent a good chunk of last season recovering from a foot problem. He did return to play for the U23s but did not make a big impact for the senior side.

Spurs would still need a striker as cover for Harry Kane, with Fernando Llorente having left the club in the summer, and it will be interesting to see who else we can sign in the summer.

Spurs transfer news: Tottenham meet with Atletico Madrid over Eriksen’s sale

Spanish outlet AS (h/t Mirror) claims that Tottenham want €60-70million from Christian Eriksen’s sale as the Dane enters the final year of his contract.

The 27-year-old was signed from Ajax in 2013 and has become one of the best in the Premier League.

The Dane helped us reach the Champions League final last season, but wants a different challenge ahead of the new season.

Eriksen has travelled to Asia for the pre-season tour but the report claims that Atletico Madrid are set to bid for the Dane.

A Tottenham member also met with the CEO of Atletico, Miguel Angel Gill, to discuss a deal for Eriksen (h/t Mirror).

Atletico making moves in the window

The La Liga giants have been busy in this transfer window, having sold Antoine Griezmann and bought Joao Felix.

Kieran Trippier also joined them from Tottenham a few days ago, and the report adds that they could sell Angel Correa to Inter Milan.

They would need to reinforce their attack, with James Rodriguez and Eriksen being linked with moves to the Wanda Metropolitano (h/t Mirror).

Getting €60-70million from the Dane’s sale would not be a bad deal, especially if he is off to a foreign club.

Keeping him for another year runs the risk of him leaving for free while we need to avoid selling the Dane to a Premier League rival.
