Tottenham fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are hoping their manager can use his heritage after the Express revealed he is planning to land fellow countryman Ezequiel Lavezzi from Paris Saint-Germain.
Mauricio Pochettino is stepping foot in a competitive race which will see them join Liverpool and Atletico Madrid in the pursuit of the £15m rated forward.
Lavezzi has one year left remaining on his current deal and Laurent Blanc is yet to offer him a new deal.
So punters expect PSG to cash in on him next summer rather than risk losing him on a free in 2016.
The 29-year-old is constantly in and out of the Ligue 1 side and he hopes to be a key member in the next team he joins as his career is coming to an end.
To add to the complexity of the situation Pochettino will also have to compete with Chelsea and Manchester City, who have also expressed an interest.
Tottenham fans. Do you think that Mauricio Pochettino will be able to attract Ezequiel Lavezzi to White Hart Lane? Let us know your thoughts below.
