The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern are eager for their side to capitalise on their new-found success. Over the last few years, Spurs have had to rely on buying young players and developing them into world-class talents. This, so far, has worked well – with the likes of Dele Alli and Harry Kane turning into top players under the tutelage of Mauricio Pochettino.
However, having secured their passage into the last 16 of the Champions League, Tottenham are now a side that can attract some of Europe’s biggest names, and that’s a very exciting prospect ahead of the January transfer window.
A few big names could be available in January, and the fans in the pub have spent the last few days listing a few players that they would love to see come to London. One such player is Julian Draxler, and it’s safe to say that he might just be the most popular man in London were he to move to Tottenham.
According to a recent poll ran by our landlord, a whopping 93% of Tottenham fans would like to see Draxler move to their club, with the German clearly impressing fans with his rampaging runs and impressive goalscoring record.
Draxler’s had a tough time of it in France with PSG, and so a potential departure in January is not unfeasible. He offers something that would be unique at Tottenham in that his focus is on his technique and dribbling, whilst the likes of Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli are more efficient when passing the ball.
Thus, it’s a move that would make a lot of sense – and the Spurs fans recognise that.
