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.



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.
