Our Spurs fans here in the Transfer Tavern are fairly happy with their season so far and, whilst they’d like to start reeling in Chelsea soon, off the pitch they are looking to beat them, too, to the signing of Marc Cucurella according to Spanish outlet Sport.
The two London rivals’ supporters here in the bar have already locked horns once this season on the pitch as Chelsea won at Stamford Bridge so the Lilywhites would like nothing more than to win this battle for the youngster.
Cucurella is a left back working his way through the Barcelona set up and has made ten appearances so far in the UEFA Youth League this season, scoring one goal.
At 18-years-old he still has plenty to learn and work on but that could particularly attract Spurs who have seen with Mauricio Pochettino that signing young players is the way forward.
The likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Eric Dier have all played big parts in Spurs’ team in recent times at still young ages and our landlord reckons the same kind of coaching would benefit Cucurella far more than if he was at Chelsea.
Who should sign him, Spurs and Chelsea fans? Let us know below!
