Tottenham supporters have been in high spirits in the Transfer Tavern this week after seeing their side pick up a fourth Premier League victory in five matches courtesy of a routine 4-0 success over out-of-form Everton at Wembley last weekend.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men went into their clash with the struggling Toffees off the back of easing past AFC Wimbledon in the third round of the FA Cup, a result which stretched their unbeaten run in all competitions to six matches. And the North London outfit made it seven as a brace from Harry Kane as well as goals from Son Heung-min and Christian Eriksen sealed a comfortable victory for Pochettino’s side, who in turn moved to within three points of Chelsea in fourth.
Thus, there have been many delighted Spurs fans in the Tavern in recent times, several of whom are likely to be intrigued and perhaps slightly frustrated by a recent report from Calcio Mercato, which suggests that Juventus’ Fabio Pataraci will not become the club’s new sporting director.
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy was reportedly keen on bringing the 45-year-old to the North London club given the sterling work he has done in Turin, with the Old Lady winning seven straight Serie A titles as well as twice reaching the Champions League final in 2015 and 2017 since his appointment back in 2010.
However, recent reports suggest that Juventus will not sanction Pataraci’s move to Tottenham, in what looks set to be a bitter blow to Levy in his bid to help take Spurs to the next level in the coming years.
Landlord’s verdict: With a new stadium to come in subsequent years, and Mauricio Pochettino’s side beginning to qualify for Europe with regularity, the future certainly looks bright for Tottenham and their supporters.
And chairman Daniel Levy appears to be seeking further improvements to his club as he reportedly wants Juventus’ sporting director Fabio Pataraci to come and do that job at the North London outfit, although recent reports suggest that the Champions League runners-up will not sanction such move.
And this is likely going to come as a blow to the Spurs chairman, and it very much remains to be seen what his next move is.
