It promises to be an exciting summer for the Tottenham Hotspur fans in the Transfer Tavern, who are hopeful Mauricio Pochettino can lead another title challenge next season.
Having come close over the past two campaigns, those from Hotspur Way are convinced a few astute additions here and there really can give them that final ingredient going forward.
Which is why reports emanating out of Portugal have proved so interesting today. Indeed, according to A Bola, the north London outfit are keen on a Euro 2016 winner as they plot for next term.
Indeed, Sporting Lisbon star Adrien Silva is reportedly of interest to Spurs, who apparently remain ‘committed’ to landing him. For their part, those in the Portuguese capital are said to be demanding around €30m for the 28-year-old midfielder.
That fee roughly equates to £26.3m – a figure that would make him one of the most expensive players in their history – so any move for the combative ace will not be taken lightly.
Having watched Silva strut his stuff in the Euros last summer, many of our north London locals would like to see him arrive, though the reported figure scares them somewhat.
With Moussa Dembele and Victor Wanyama proving so imperious in central midfield, paying that sort of money for what could be a back-up may not be the wisest investment.
