2 players who could follow Leon Goretzka to Tottenham in January

Tottenham supporters have been in fine voice in the Transfer Tavern in recent days after seeing their side end a wonderful week with a narrow 1-0 success over basement club Crystal Palace on Sunday, a result which moved the North London outfit level on points with Manchester United in the Premier League table.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men may well have succumbed to the Red Devils at the start of the week but they soon put that behind them with a sensational 3-1 victory over European champions Real Madrid at Wembley, a result which booked their spot in the last 16 of the Champions League for the first time since 2011. And although they were nowhere near their best against Roy Hodgson’s Palace on Sunday, they got the much-needed three points thanks to an excellent second half strike from Son Heung-min, which in turn moved them level on points with Jose Mourinho’s United in the table.

Thus, several of our resident Spurs fans have been toasting their side’s great week in the Tavern in recent days, yet many are using the two-week break for internationals to discuss what business their club could do in January to strengthen their squad and thus bolster their chances of success on a domestic and European front.

And one man who has been linked with a move to Spurs is Schalke midfielder Leon Goretzka, having kept close tabs on the 22-year-old in recent times given that his contract with the Bundesliga club is set to expire in the summer.

The Germany international has been majorly impressive for Schalke in the past few years but it doesn’t look like his future is at the club, with Spurs, Arsenal, Barcelona, and Bayern Munich all reportedly eyeing up a move for the youngster.

And if Pochettino’s Tottenham were indeed able to get a deal done for the 22-year-old in January, here are TWO other stars who could follow him to Wembley…
