The footballing world is still in shock regarding PSG’s move to sign Neymar from Barcelona. While people still reel from that mammoth spending spree that the French club will go through, life and football rumours must go on. After a summer where we have been linked with a number of players with none of them joining us yet, Il Secolo XIX via Calciomercato claims that we want to sign not one but two players from the Serie A.

Before we jump about and expect players from Juventus or AS Roma being linked with a move to London, the two players that could become Spurs stars are Diego Laxalt and Giovanni Simeone. Both are playing for Genoa and are considered to be great talents for the future.

Another Pair Of South Americans To Turn Things Around At Spurs

Although the pair aren’t on the same level or as popular as Ossie Ardiles or Ricky Villa, Laxalt and Simeone could be a couple of future stars under the right manager.

Laxalt is a winger and even though he doesn’t have the greatest goals-to-games ratio, the 24-year-old has become a mainstay for the Genoa side and is known for his pace and technique. The Uruguayan was even linked with a move to Chelsea last winter but that didn’t take place.

Giovanni Simeone is the son of Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone and plays mostly as a striker. The 22-year-old scored 11 Serie A goals for Genoa in his first full season and that isn’t the worst stat to have when playing in the Italian league.

The youngster can play either as a lone striker or as a secondary striker and will provide us with a lot of options ahead of the coming season. Simeone is also known for his work rate and pairing him with Harry Kane could lead to us having one of the most devastating and hardworking forward pairings in the Premier League.

Of course, this is still all up in the air as the report claims that we have asked for more information on the duo and the pair would be available for a combined fee of €35-40million.

We need to kick on and start signing players and even if we sign these two starlets, they would provide decent cover for our side which has an extremely strong starting XI.

  1. I must admit I find it baffling why we have signed no-one and not got Alderweireld tied down.I have supported Spurs for 59 years and again I am getting more and more frustrated by the fact that we have the best squad I’ve known in years and Levy and Enic are wilfully allowing it to stagnate.I now wonder about Walkers departure to Man. City – is it because of the stated reasons or is it because of the owners being interested in profit before my beloved Spurs? I’d love to hear other views on this – but I get the feeling I’m not alone!.

  2. The only thing that I would disagree with you is that we have a great starting 11 not a great squad.But you can tell from Brian Fisher above that there is a belief that we are good enough to compete in 2 domestic cups.Europe and the premier league.As usual we shall show total disrespect to the League Cup and hope for a good lucky run in the FA cup.My concern is playing in Europe on a Wednesday and fielding strong teams on the league games before and after.Our strike force is not good enough.I suspect that Toby is waiting to see how we do this season before he commits,and I cannot blame him.
