Champions League finalists. Whatever happens now, Tottenham fans can be immensely proud of their team for doing so well this season. What. A. Season.
Indeed, after it threatened to be yet another campaign of disappointment, Tottenham – against all the odds – have secured a place in the top four and book their trip to Madrid on June 1st. Who cares how expensive it is, right? Such a night is what football is made for.
Clearly, Mauricio Pochettino can take enormous pride in what he has helped achieve with this Tottenham team, who looked dead on their feet at times this season. Victorious in the Champions League final or not, Spurs surely know full-well they need to sign some new players during the summer transfer window.
Their squad has been depleted for the most part of this season with injuries proving a nightmare.
To start things off, the capture of target Rodrigo De Paul would be a great idea, seeing as though he can play in a number of different positions. De Paul, (who is valued at £16.2 million on Transfermarkt) is the definition of versatile and could be a wonderful addition for Tottenham.
Whether that be centre-midfield, left-wing or striker, the 24-year-old would be yet another strong forward option Tottenham have to choose from. CalcioMercato reported as recently as late April that he was on the club’s radar and we think the move would make sense.
The Udinese man has enjoyed a productive season – scoring nine goals and assisting four as well. With goals outside of Harry Kane and Son (Lucas Moura’s shock hat-trick aside) proving an issue, the Argentine would certainly add more of a threat from the engine room, giving the whole team a lift.
Combative and talented on the ball, he’s exactly the kind of player to get fans even more excited for their first full campaign in their stunning new home. Honestly, what a time it is to be a Spurs fan.
That being said, he alone wouldn’t be enough to change Tottenham entirely, they need plenty of reinforcements to guarantee future success. Still, with him in the mix of their talent, a few more players in the right areas could leave Mauricio Pochettino with a seriously talented team that are ready to challenge on all fronts next season.
