The Tottenham fans within the Transfer Tavern are happy to have put daylight between they and Chelsea in the race for the final Champions League spot as the season draws to a close and are hoping to hang their hat on qualification for next year’s competition.
It’s been a rollercoaster season for Spurs, with the side still putting almighty pressure on their title rivals but then dropping in form at the vital and latter stages. Tottenham have now a very capable team and one they hope they can keep during this summer transfer window period, having already lost Kyle Walker to Manchester City last season.
Spurs must ensure that they don’t sell but instead build on the foundations they have at the club and a player our punters would certainly love to see play at the new ground is Fabian Ruiz, a midfielder worth £13.50 million according to Transfermarkt. The Spaniard currently plays for Real Betis and has been a really important player for them this season, catching the eye of many teams around Europe.
Having made 31 appearances thus far, getting 2 goals and 6 assists, Ruiz is a capable midfielder who can play in an array of different positions, from central to attacking midfield or even out wide on the left-hand side.
Tottenham already have a distinct amount of quality but, going forward and seeing as they’re fighting on so many fronts, competition for places is important so no player can slack or they will have someone to replace them. That’s the level Tottenham need to reach as a club and Fabian Ruiz would certainly go a big step in the right direction should they beat off competition for the 22-year-old.
