It’s fair to say that Tottenham will need to work hard to achieve a place in the top four this season, with competition hotting up already.
Having been good again this season, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Tottenham retain their place in the top four and it definitely wouldn’t if they strengthened their squad during the January transfer window.
A number of sources, including Marca via Sport Witness, have revealed that Tottenham are interested in Real Madrid star Marco Asensio.
Despite initial reports suggesting that Asensio would turn down an approach from Spurs, the thought of being able to surround himself in players who may complement his style of play more could be an interesting thought for the Spaniard.
What could this massive signing mean for Tottenham in the long run…
Tottenham’s top four chances will increase
Undoubtedly, a statement signing like that will do wonders for their top four chances this season and may even be the difference in bringing Champions League football to their new home.
Asensio is a creative playmaker that thrives out on the wing, or through the middle as an attacking midfielder.
Goals are vital in winning games and that is exactly what Marco Asensio could bring to the team.
Spurs even more dangerous going forward
Tottenham already have some quality attacking options but Marco Asensio’s arrival would just raise the bar even more.
Any team would face an almighty challenge in containing Tottenham’s attack with Asensio’s vision sure to cause havoc, as well as his own efforts on goal.
They have to start making some marquee signings because the more they spend, the more likely they’re to push on and challenge for the title.
