Tottenham Hotspur fans in the Transfer Tavern will be looking for the club to spend big this summer as they will be expecting a number of additions this summer.
Mauricio Pochettino wants to strengthen his squad ahead of next season as he prepares to take his Spurs side to a trophy for the first time in a decade and will know he needs to address certain areas.
A defender is thought to be high on his transfer list as he looks to replace Toby Alderweireld this summer, with the Belgium international thought to be heading for the exit, and reports are suggesting the Argentine may have to compete with one of their huge rivals.
The London Evening Standard are suggesting that Tottenham are preparing to battle Chelsea for the signing of Jamaal Lascelles from Newcastle United. The defender has impressed this season for the Magpies and was unfortunate to miss out on an England spot for the World Cup.
Indeed, it claims Spurs are to step up attempts to land him and, considering Pochettino’s track record when it comes to working with English players, it would be a move that makes absolute sense.
The locals in the Tavern would be pleased to see a man like Lascelles arrive at White Hart Lane in the future as he has shown plenty of promise despite his young age.
The 24-year-old was one of Newcastle’s main players last season and still has a number of playing years left that the punters will feel Pochettino can take advantage of and make him even better.
