Tottenham fans in the Football Transfer Tavern may not yet know who their manager will be next season but it certainly doesn’t stop them from getting excited about possible transfer targets.
And thanks to Metro they’ve been given something to talk about this evening after they reported that Spurs were planning to raid Southampton.
But before Tottenham fans get carried away they should understand that it’s not Luke Shaw or Adam Lallana but striker Jay Rodriguez.
Rodriguez was an England World Cup squad candidate after the first half of the season but an injury towards the end of the season ruled him out.
His tally of 17 goals in 40 games has clearly caught the eye of the board at White Hart Lane.
It looks like a season to remember could be a pre-season to forget if the papers are to be believed with the South-coast club in danger of losing not only Luke Shaw and Adam Lallana but also their gaffer Mauricio Pochettino.
Pochettino is rumoured to be on the managerial candidate list for Tottenham, so it would be interesting to see if the two were to come as a pair.
It looks like Tottenham will be in the market for a striker regardless of whether it’s Poch sanctioning the deals after big money signing Roberto Soldado failed to replicate his Spanish form in England.
Tottenham fans. Do you want Rodriguez, Mauricio Pochettino or both? Let us know your thoughts below.
