Spurs opinion: How Tottenham could line up next season if Pochettino gets his targets

Tottenham have a huge summer ahead of them as Mauricio Pochettino plans to bring in new faces at the club.

The Argentine worked his magic by taking us to the Champions League final and finishing in the top four with a team that had no investment in two transfer windows.

The team had to deal with several injuries and the players came tired from a draining World Cup too.

Tottenham’s finances will be affected by repayment of dues regarding the new stadium (h/t Guardian), but Mauricio Pochettino has handed a list of stars that he wants at the club.

The Guardian reports that Tanguy Ndombele, Donny van de Beek, Nicolo Zaniolo and Ryan Sessegnon are some of the players on the list. Giovani Lo Celso of Real Betis has also been linked with us in recent weeks (h/t Sun).

Although we should see some big names coming in, the Guardian claims that a few players could leave the club too. Eriksen is the big worry ahead of the season as the Dane has openly stated that he wants a new challenge.

Toby Alderweireld has been linked with an exit (h/t Sun), however, the Belgian claimed he has a contract with us and is concentrating on the season ahead.

Tottenham a different side in the new season

There isn’t a surety that every player linked with Spurs will sign for us in the coming campaign. However, we could have a completely different side to what we have seen for well over a year now.

Eriksen could be one of the big losses for the club but Giovani Lo Celso can play as the central attacking midfielder for us. The Argentine has been excellent for Betis and is now participating in the Copa America.

The midfield really needs some signings after Mousa Dembele was allowed to leave in January, and several players picked up injuries. Harry Winks should be a starter but one of the possible new boys, Ndombele, should start alongside the Englishman.

The Lyon midfielder is a powerhouse and is exactly the kind of player we need. Victor Wanyama was out injured for a long time while Eric Dier was wildly inconsistent last season.

The attack doesn’t change much for us as Dele Alli and Son Heung-min should support Harry Kane. Zaniolo could be a decent signing but he might be on the bench more often than not.

Spurs could do with another striker acting as cover for Kane, however, Lucas Moura and Son have proved that they can play in that position should the Englishman be out.

Changes in the defence

Alderweireld’s departure would be a huge blow but we can see Davinson Sanchez slot into the team alongside Jan Vertonghen.

The left-back position will be key as Pochettino could swap Danny Rose with Ryan Sessegnon (h/t Sun). The Fulham star was inconsistent last season, however, our manager can get the best out of him.

Sessegnon could play a few games as a left-back but he has been most impressive in the attack.

Kieran Trippier is also being linked with a move away from Spurs (h/t Calciomercato) and that could see Serge Aurier replace the Englishman.

Ideally, we should try and sign another quality right-back in case Trippier leaves, but Manchester United have already bid for Aaron Wan-Bissaka of Crystal Palace (h/t Sun).

There is no replacing Hugo Lloris at the moment, and the Spurs captain should lead the line-up next season.

It would be incredible if we could spend without a worry in the summer, but we have to be smart with our acquisitions too.

Signing too many players in one summer could mess our team dynamic. The target has to be winning a trophy next season and hopefully, some new signings can help Pochettino break that duck here.

Spurs transfer news: Tottenham interested in Newcastle’s Martin Dubravka

The Daily Mail reports that Tottenham are interested in Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka.

The Slovakian is rated at £12million, according to the report, with Aston Villa and Manchester United also keen on the 30-year-old.

Dubravka has been one of the best players at Newcastle over the past few years but they recently oversaw the departure of Spanish manager Rafa Benitez.

Martin Dubravka

The report adds that Dubravka is unsettled with Benitez’s departure, and talks over a new deal have stalled at the club.

Tottenham want more competition for Lloris

Hugo Lloris has been a great servant of the club since his move from Lyon, and the report claims that Spurs are interested in more competition for the Frenchman.

The World Cup winner has made some errors last campaign but also registered some fantastic performances that won us games.

Spurs also saw the departure of Michel Vorm once his contract expired, and we only have Paulo Gazzaniga as the cover for Lloris.

The Argentine did a great job for us when called upon and it is interesting to see us get linked with Dubravka.

The Slovakian is one of the best in the Premier League and would provide great competition for the keeper’s role under Mauricio Pochettino.

However, we could do with players for other positions too. A versatile attacker is required as cover for Harry Kane while we can do with a full-back as well.

Tottenham handed transfer blow as club can’t guarantee player’s exit

Spurs transfer news: Real Madrid cannot guarantee Ceballos exit

Marca reports that Real Madrid cannot guarantee the exit of Spanish star Dani Ceballos.

The report adds that Ceballos’ future has been up in the air this summer, and the player was expected to leave as Real wanted a big name signing such as Christian Eriksen or Paul Pogba.

However, the Madrid giants have kept an eye on Ceballos during the U21 Euro championship, and believe that a season with the senior team will help him become a better player (h/t Marca).

Ceballos was one of the stars as Spain lifted the U21 Euro title, however, he didn’t start too many games under Zinedine Zidane last season.

The report adds that Pogba’s move to Madrid isn’t a surety, and Real would not be able to sign better players than the Spaniard, at a reasonable price.

Ceballos and Zidane have to work on their relationship, according to the report, and Tottenham have been linked with the 22-year-old during the summer.

AC Milan are also keen on the midfielder, and the report adds that the final decision on the player’s future will be taken once he returns from a break.

Interesting times ahead for Spurs and Ceballos

The Spaniard isn’t guaranteed of regular starts at Madrid, especially with the club spending big in the summer, and a move to another club could help him get more playing time.

Dani Ceballos

Tottenham could do with someone like Ceballos, however, if we keep hold of Eriksen, there would be loads of competition for starting places.

Tanguy Ndombele has to be a starter after his big-money move from Lyon, while Spurs still have Moussa Sissoko, Dele Alli, Victor Wanyama and Eric Dier on their books.

Spurs transfer news: Tottenham interested in Real Betis’ Junior Firpo

Spanish reports (h/t Football.london) suggest that Tottenham are interested in Real Betis youngster Junior Firpo.

The 22-year-old left-back impressed for the La Liga side last season with three goals and four assists in the league.

The Spanish defender was also a part of the U21 side that lifted the Euros in the summer after defeating Germany in the final.

Junior Firpo in action for Spain

Firpo can also play as a left-midfielder and the report adds that he is attracting interest from several parties in Europe.

The report claims that a €30million bid could be enough to see the deal take place, however, Firpo wants to remain in Spain.

Spurs could do with a versatile left-back

Firpo has a bright future ahead of him and Tottenham could do with his versatility. The 22-year-old can provide cover for our wide players, and also challenge Danny Rose and Ben Davies for a first-team spot.

Davies had an average campaign the last time around while Rose was the first-choice left-back.

Ben Davies

The English defender was one of our better players throughout the previous season however, Rose hinted that Tottenham have a policy of selling players who reach a certain age (h/t Evening Standard).

Tottenham need to spend in this summer window and Tanguy Ndombele alone is not going to be enough to take us to the next level.

Jack Clarke has also joined, but the English winger has returned to Leeds on a season-long loan deal.

Spurs transfer news: Eriksen and Alderweireld set to travel for Asia tour

The Evening Standard reports that Toby Alderweireld and Christian Eriksen are set to travel to Singapore for Tottenham’s pre-season despite concerns regarding their futures.

The report claims that the pair will travel with the team on Wednesday and play their first game of the pre-season against Juventus on Sunday.

Tottenham then play Manchester United in Shanghai on 25th July, and the report claims that the pair will be named for the Asia tour.

The report claims that Toby Alderweireld can leave for £25million before 26th July and AS Roma are interested in the Belgian.

Eriksen had spoken about taking up a new challenge, and the report adds that Real Madrid are keeping an eye on the Danish midfielder. The report adds that Eric Dier will miss the tour after undergoing a medical procedure recently.

A big summer awaits for both players

Eriksen and Alderweireld are two of the best in the Premier League and losing them would come as a blow to Mauricio Pochettino.

Finding quality replacements for them won’t be easy, and the start of the Premier League season is less than a month away now.

Eriksen is in the prime of his career and could improve in the coming years while Alderweireld recently hit 30, but should have a few more quality years left in him.
