The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern have spent the last few hours discussing reports emanating from Sky Sports. According to Sky Sports, Tottenham are monitoring Ligue 2 starlet Matteo Guendouzi with a view to securing a long-term replacement for ageing midfielder Mousa Dembele.
On first glance, it’s an interest that makes sense. Guendouzi is clearly a very talented midfielder, he’s proven as much this season, but he’s also very young and he has a lot of potential – making him the perfect candidate for Mauricio Pochettino. The Argentine manager has had a lot of success in signing young players and turning them into European stars, and this could be simply another tale in that story.
Unfortunately, though, it’s not that simple for Tottenham. This interest has come under fire from the Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern, and it’s easy to see why. Their form this season has been inconsistent at best, and whilst planning for the future is all well and good, they think that what they need now more than ever is proven quality.
That being said, January signings are needed, but our resident Lilywhites think that Tottenham should sign 1 of these 2 midfielders in January instead of Guendouzi – do you agree?
