The Portuguese international, who last season moved to Barcelona from rival side Valencia after impressing for the club, has struggled at the Camp Nou.
So far in Cataluna, the midfield maestro hasn’t really found his feet as he floats in and out of the starting line up, considering the strength in depth available to the La Liga giants.
Knowing the stature and talent of this bloke, this man could thrive under Pochettino, in what would be a very good signing for the club.
Tottenham enjoy a style of play that sees 4 central based players take their stance both in deeper and attacking positions.
This man would suit Spurs massively, as he offers that diverse range of both defensive and attacking qualities with marauding runs forward and darting runs back to offer stability going both ways.
With main man Dele Alli currently off form, this midfield ace would be the perfect fit to step up out of this mans shadow.
