The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern desperately want their side to land a few signings this summer…
Last season was a very good one for the Lilywhites, but a lack of action this summer has left fans fearing that their side could be left behind.
Fortunately, it appears as though at least one player is open to a switch to Tottenham this summer – with the Evening Standard reporting that Ross Barkley is keen on moving to White Hart Lane, with the prospect of working under Mauricio Pochettino said to be attracting the Englishman.
Of course, Pochettino has earned quite the glowing reputation over the last few years, particularly for the way that he utilises young, homegrown talent. This will likely be enticing Barkley, especially when considering the improvements that players like Dele Alli and Harry Kane have made under the Argentine.
Barkley has struggled over the last year or so, failing to really impress under Ronald Koeman, so a fresh start is certainly what he needs. The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern aren’t sure that he would improve their team directly, but his potential is clear for all to see, and there is nobody better equipped than Pochettino to bring the best out of him.
Still, a move remains firmly in the distance, with Tottenham yet to agree any sort of fee with Everton. WIth Barkley keen on a move, though, the first step is complete.
