After another disappointing defeat on Saturday afternoon, it would not be a surprise to see Tottenham Hotspur enter the transfer market this summer and make improvements to their squad.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side are known for not having made any additions to their team over the past two windows, however, if they are to compete with the best, they are going to need to spend in the coming months.
And, according to a report by Portuguese publication Record (via HITC Sport), Diogo Queiros is thought to be on their radar as the defence is believed to be an area of the field that needs reinforcing.
However, what would the potential consequences be if Spurs did sign the Porto enforcer? Let’s take a closer look at some of them below.
Levy secures Alderweireld replacement
Toby Alderweireld’s future at Tottenham is far from clear, with the Belgium international defender recently admitting just as much as well. The enforcer had a release clause of £25million activated in his contract recently when it was extended, which is likely going to interest plenty of potential suitors.
However, Queiros could be the perfect candidate to replace the defender if Daniel Levy was able to acquire him this summer.
The 20-year-old is strong in the air and a good dribbler who is extremely composed with the ball at his feet. The young Portuguese is also adept at tackling and has the strength and physic to make life difficult for attackers to try and get past him.
No room for Foyth
Juan Foyth may appear to have a bright future at the club, however, if Queiros was to arrive at the New White Hart Lane Stadium this summer, it might be difficult for him to get more game-time.
The Argentine, who will now miss the final game of the season because of the red card he picked up against Bournemouth almost immediately after coming onto the pitch on Saturday, would struggle to replace Jan Vertonghen and Davinson Sanchez in the side as a centre-back.
He might get a chance as a right-back in the future, however, we here at the Transfer Tavern do not think that is Pochettino’s best move going forward.
