Tottenham Hotspur haven’t exactly enjoyed the best of times under Mauricio Pochettino in the Premier League recently, but a change of scenery might do the trick as Spurs are set to play their first game at their new stadium on the 3rd of April against Crystal Palace.
Of course, one thing that has frustrated fans over the past year has been Daniel Levy’s lack of spending as Spurs have failed to spend a single penny in either of the last two transfer windows. So, hopefully the recent collapse in the Premier League will prove to the Englishman that reinforcements are required in the summer.
However, he may not have to spend to lure a potential target to North London in the summer transfer window, as FC Porto’s Hector Herrera is set to become a free agent once his contract expires in the summer and there’s no deal in place to extend that as it stands. The Mexico international has been linked (as per Corriere dello Sport) (via talkSPORT) with Spurs, so it’s now up to Levy to make something of the interest.
Spurs haven’t had the chance to replace Mousa Dembele after his January departure. Herrera would be the perfect replacement for the Belgian as he offers everything that Dembele does defensively but also has the added threat of being able to influence the game in the final third, with seven goals and two assists to his name this season. He can pick defence-splitting passes and has all the experience to keep things tight in the middle of the park.
Spanish newspaper AS claim that Herrera has agreed to join Atletico Madrid but it’s only speculation at this point as nothing has been confirmed, so Spurs are still in with a chance if they act quickly.
