Impressive Tottenham would be the place to grow Croatia star into one of Europe’s best wingers

Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern are starting to get worried due to the lack of signings being made in the transfer window.

Mauricio Pochettino is yet to make a signing this summer. Our regulars in the Tavern are disappointed to see Premier League rivals such as Manchester United and Liverpool splashing over £75m on new recruits. Time is running out with the window closing before the start of the season for the first time.

Bolstering the Tottenham attack will be a priority for Pochettino following the conclusion of the World Cup. Lessening the goalscoring burden on Harry Kane will be vital to maintaining a title challenge. A new winger could be perfect to compliment the English forward, as it does with the Three Lions.

A great signing could be Juventus forward – Marko Pjaca. Valued at £13.5m by Transfermarkt, the Croatia international has endured a disappointing time after moving from Dinamo Zagreb back in 2016. Injuries have hampered his progress to the first-team and was loaned to Schalke in January to get game time.

The 23-year-old made just seven appearances during his time in the Bundesliga, scoring two goals. He finally showed glimpses of his talent during his spell in Germany but may not have a future in Italy should Juventus complete the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid. He is capable on both wings or as a number ten making him an excellent option for Pochettino to have at his disposal.

A move to North London could be just what Pjaca needs to rediscover the form that made him one of Europe’s most sought-after youngsters.
