Tottenham Hotspur eyeing a move for Real Sociedad star Brais Mendez

Brais Mendez is the latest name to be linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur as a potential midfield reinforcement for the North London club.

Football enthusiasts who don’t follow La Liga might not have heard of Mendez but he is a star of Real Sociedad. The midfielder is a key player in a team that constantly goes under the radar and almost always punches above their weight.

Brais Mendez has established himself as a key presence in the Spanish side. His incredible performances coupled with his ability to score goals regularly make him a very enticing asset for any club.

Apparently, Tottenham are not the only Premier League club interested in signing the midfielder. However, Real Sociedad coach Imanol Alguacil hopes that he can keep hold of the 26-year-old for a long time.

According to the Spanish publication Fichajes, Real Sociedad value him around 30 million euros. However, they are willing to fight to try and keep the talented midfielder. Tottenham won’t rest easy though.

Ange Postecoglou has completely transformed the midfield. Gone are the days of boring sideways passing at Tottenham and the likes of Yves Bissouma, Pape Matar Sarr and James Maddison all play with a lot of intent.

Add Rodrigo Bentancur to the list and we have a very special midfield to work with. There are also the likes of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Oliver Skipp who can fill in should there be any issue with the aforementioned players.

Brais Mendez is a different kind of option to the current roster that we have. However, it might not make sense to get into a bidding war for him unless one of our existing midfielders were to leave.
