Tottenham Urged To Sign £100,000-a-week Playmaker To Add More Dynamism To The Squad

Riyad Mahrez

Tottenham Hotspur are urged to make a move for Leicester City playmaker Riyad Mahrez as speculation over his Foxes career refuse to die down.

BBC pundit Danny Murphy has suggested that Tottenham should go all-out for the signature of this talented midfielder as he believes that the Algerian could add a lot of depth to this Spurs side.

This is not the first time that Mahrez has been linked with a move to Tottenham. It was back in the summer that The Telegraph spoke about the Algerian being on the lookout for a new club and that Spurs were one of the interested clubs.

Mahrez, who earns £100,000-a-week, has been looking for the exit door for quite some time now, and frustratingly for him, none of the moves materialised. In fact, I still remember the time when right after winning the Premier League with Leicester, he was linked with an audacious move to Barcelona.

His suitors didn’t come calling and it was reported in the summer that the 26-year-old could be on Tottenham’s radar. Although there was nothing from the club to suggest they were interested, he is someone who has always impressed Mauricio Pochettino.

So, is he the man that the Argentine manager is craving for? Murphy certainly thinks so as he says that Mahrez can add a lot of creativity to the side. He says that Pochettino’s squad would be better with Mahrez in the squad.

Murphy was talking on Match of the Day programme on BBC (h/t Leicester Mercury) and said:

“He’d suit Tottenham. They need someone like him. They need someone who can add a bit of dynamism to their team.”

No wonder that this comes in the wake of a Leicester win over Tottenham. The Foxes outsmarted Tottenham to win 2-1 at the King Power Stadium. The second Leicester goal was a stunning solo effort by Mahrez.

I firmly believe that the Algerian international is an exceptional talent and his PFA Player of the Year award in 2016 during Leicester’s surprising title win is not a flash in the pan.

As he showed in the game against us recently; and I am sure Pochettino will agree, Mahrez is very difficult to stop when he is in form. He had his quota of poor form, but it looks like he has put that behind him. Spurs will definitely be better off going for the midfield magician.

What’s your take on this? Do you think Mahrez would improve our team?
