Wow, Tottenham Hotspur are in a Champions League final. You’ll probably still be celebrating that while reading this but just to read that sentence again must be nice. Milk it, ladies and gentlemen, milk it for literally all you can.
Obviously, it now seems churlish to even talk about the problems in play at the club right now after a fairly disappointing domestic campaign but, clearly, there are issues.
Indeed, Spurs are known for struggling without talisman Harry Kane and Heung Min-Son, which is something they will look to work on this summer. With that in mind, reports suggest that Tottenham will have a tasty budget to utilise during the summer period as Mauricio Pochettino may finally be entrusted to make a real difference to the club.
Clearly, he is in search of a number of top players this summer, those fitting to make Tottenham genuine contenders in every competition they play in next season.
So the March rumour linking (as per CalcioMercato) Inter Milan’s Matias Vecino in that case, makes complete sense, given the midfield quality he possesses. Vecino, who was signed for £21.6 million back in 2017 (as per Transfermarkt), will be a familiar name to Tottenham fans seeing as he scored against them in the Champions League earlier on this season.
Back then, it was suggested that Spurs were put off by the Serie A giants’ asking price but the report from the Sun recently claiming the club would have a lot more money to spend this summer might indeed change things. Who knows, really, but he’s exactly the kind of player Tottenham should be targetting.
That performance alone from Vecino may have been enough to encourage Tottenham to spend big on the 27-year-old this summer, given how much he could improve their midfield.
Whilst Moussa Sissoko has hit new heights this season, the likes of Eric Dier and Victor Wanyama have really failed to make an impact and hence could be leaving this summer. So, perhaps Vecino could be the man to line up alongside Sissoko in the middle of the park, with the perfect balance of attack and defence.
In what is bound to be a period of change for Tottenham, the capture of Matias Vecino could leave fans very happy, especially after seeing the season he has had. From the centre of midfield, he has played 37 times, scoring five goals and assisting a further four as well.
Tottenham’s engine room just needs a refresh and we can’t think of a player more suited to the project currently in play in North London.
In terms of contribution, it is clear to see that the Uruguay international could fit very nicely into Tottenham’s squad.
Spurs fans, would you back a move for Vecino? If not, why not? Join the discussion by commenting below…
