Tottenham Hotspur fans in the Transfer Tavern will be expecting the side to make a number of changes this summer, and will start to be getting concerned with the lack of transfer activity so far.
Manager Mauricio Pochettino will want to make the additions to his squad that he feels will give them the best chance to compete across all competitions and, according to reports in Italy, he could be about to beat a Premier League rival to one of his targets.
And that’s because FC Inter News are reporting that Spurs are in pole position to bring Rafinha from Barcelona this summer, despite strong interest being shown from London rivals West Ham.
The 25-year-old has been on loan at Inter Milan for the past season and they have turned a move down to sign him permanently, leaving the door open for the London duo.
The report is claiming that Tottenham are set to make the first move, stating that they have already been granted permission by the Catalan giants to discuss a deal, in news which is sure to delight our resident Spurs supporters.
Landlord’s Verdict: Tottenham fans in the Tavern will surely be pleased to see a player like Rafinha at White Hart Lane next season, as he can offer them a lot in the middle of the field.
However, the locals will be hoping the club act quickly on the possibility of bringing him to the Premier League, otherwise, they could be seeing him play against them rather than for them next year.
Tottenham fans… what do you make of the news? Let us know!
