Pochettino reportedly eyeing ambitious raid as Tottenham look to bulk up this summer

Tottenham Hotspur will be slightly concerned that they have not managed to lift a trophy once again having been knocked out at the semi-final stage in the FA Cup for the second season in a row, and fans in the Transfer Tavern will be looking for the club to add in the summer to help them break that hoodoo.

Mauricio Pochettino has done a magnificent job at White Hart Lane since he arrived from Southampton, having guided and developed the likes of Harry Kane and Dele Alli into world-class players, but still lacks a trophy on his resume.

The manager had made comments about whether he was the right man for the job after their cup defeat to Manchester United, however, it appears he is still committed to the project he has in place at Spurs and is already planning his summer recruitment.

According to the Mirror, Pochettino has targeted a Portuguese trio to help his side become more competitive across all competitions next season. Cedric Soares of Southampton, Gelson Martins of Sporting Lisbon and Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Rueben Neves have all been linked as targets.

Soares could become available if the Saints are relegated, with the Euro 2016 winner unlikely to remain, whilst Martins has impressed the Argentine with his versatility on the wings. Neves has impressed for the Molineux outfit in the Championship, although a deal for him could be difficult to conduct after their promotion to the Premier League.

Landlord’s Verdict

The Spurs fans in the Tavern will be excited with the trio being linked with the club as each bring their own quality to the side and are all relatively young, given the side a fresh look and replacing some of their older bodies.

Tottenham fans – what do you think of the trio linked? Let us know below!
