Tottenham keen on ‘new Thierry Henry’

TottenhamTottenham Hotspur fans in the Transfer Tavern had to endure years of being punished by Thierry Henry across the North London divide, so their delighted to be linked with a player often compared to the Gunners legend.

The Daily Mirror states Spurs are keen to complete a deal for Bordeaux’s Henri Saivet in January, after scouting the player during the Europa League clash with Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.

Available for just £3.5m, and compared to Thierry Henry, the addition of the speedster would be a valued asset to Mauricio Pochettino’s side as they push for a Champions League finish at the end of the season.

The 25-year-old Senegalese international is rated very highly and would add new depth to the Spurs squad, who maintained their terrific unbeaten run with a goalless draw against struggling Chelsea on Sunday afternoon.

With a talented young squad capable of achieving remarkable things, our Spurs regulars have a new found sense of optimism for the years ahead.
