Tottenham first deal of the transfer window is set to be completed with Spurs reportedly accepting an £11m offer for Mousa Dembele, according to BBC Sport.
The Belgian playmaker has been ever-present for the Lilywhites since joining from Fulham, developing into one of the finest midfielders in the Premier League. With his contract set to expire in the summer, speculation was rife that Dembele was set to leave the club with Serie A sides previously reported (by the Daily Mail) to be lurking. However, his next destination looks set to be China after Beijing Guoan had an offer accepted for the Belgian international.
Pochettino is in the process of clearing space in his squad for some new arrivals with Sky Sports suggesting Fernando Llorente, Vincent Janssen and Georges-Kevin N’Koudou also allowed the depart the club in the near future. The Argentine would be wise to reinvest the funds from their sale to bolster his attacking options with Heung Min-Son set to depart soon for the Asian Cup.
The ideal target would be Hull City hotshot – Jarrod Bowen. Valued at just £4.5m by Transfermarkt, the 22-year-old has been a key player for the Tigers after progressing through their youth academy to the first-team. Bowen has in fine form last season, finding the back of the net 14 times and his excellent form has continued into the new campaign.
The right winger, who can play right across the forward line, has already scored 11 times in the Championship this season as well as registering three assists for his team-mates. Bowen is a hard-working forward, meaning he is ideal for Pochettino’s Tottenham and would also lower the goalscoring burden on the shoulders of Harry Kane. Despite not being the quickest of forwards, the youngster more than makes up for his lack of pace with excellent dribbling skill and technical ability.
James Maddison and David Brooks have both proved to be Premier League successes so far, Tottenham should give Bowen the chance to display his talents on the biggest stage in the world.
