The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern are very excited about their future under Mauricio Pochettino. The Argentine is making it a very exciting time to be a Lilywhite, with some real strides being made on the pitch at the moment. They’ve challenged for the Premier League title over the last couple of years, and whilst the current campaign hasn’t had quite the same high standards, their form in Europe has more than made up for that.
Indeed, those changes appear to be coming off the field too, owing to the suggestion that a major transfer plan is being made.
Though famed for buying players for low fees and turning them into Premier League stars, as they did with Dele Alli, the Mirror are reporting that Tottenham are tracking Marco Reus ahead of a potential move in the future. His contract expires in 18 months, and Spurs could reportedly be keen to bring him in – with the club said to be making plans to ‘ready’ a bid.
This would certainly send quite the message to Tottenham’s Premier League rivals, as it would suggest a significant change in tactic. Rarely do they look to bring in world-renowned, world-class talent – but Reus certainly falls under that banner.
If they were to bring him in, it would certainly be a huge statement of intent, with Mauricio Pochettino and Daniel Levy likely viewing a move of that size as a precursor to a significant rise up the table.
Whether a move happens remains to be seen, but he’d certainly be a decent fit in the Premier League.
Reus has been around for a very long time, but at 28-years-old, he’s only now entering the prime of his career.
Injuries have been a big problem for him, but in terms of raw quality, Spurs would struggle to do much better.
Mauricio Pochettino has a few attacking midfielders from which to choose, but nobody possesses the raw technical quality and pace that Reus has, and if they can keep him fit, a move would make sense.
