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.

Ditching a corporate job to follow a dream isn’t easy, but when football comes calling, who can say no? Been following the beautiful game since 1998.
