Ask the majority of Tottenham supporters in the Football Transfer Tavern where they’d like Mauricio Pochettino to strengthen this summer and the reply will usually be in defence and in attack.
All the better then that according to widespread reports online, FC Koln’s Austrian international centre back Kevin Wimmer is set to become Spurs’ first signing of the summer transfer window after being spotted in a German airport by Bild ahead of travelling to London for a medical.
With Younes Kaboul’s injury troubles scaling new unwanted heights and the jury still very much out on the likes of Vlad Chiriches, Tottenham fans will hope that the lesser known Wimmer can arrive, go under the radar and complete his defensive duties efficiently.
One Spurs fan takes this moment to pipe up and claim that although the signings of the likes of Wimmer, DeAndre Yedlin and Ben Davies are all well and good, where are the bigger name flair additions to truly make Tottenham fans genuine top four contenders?
While Christian Eriksen has proved an inspired signing, bigger names such as Erik Lamela and Roberto Soldado have failed but this shouldn’t put Tottenham off trying to lure the bigger names to White Hart Lane.
With this in mind, we have identified five more Spurs targets who could end up following Wimmer to White Hart Lane this summer.
