The Spurs fans in the Transfer Tavern so excited about the club’s venture into the Champions League have been met with further exciting reports as Premier League sides gear up for silly season.
According to Polish outlet Sportowe Fakty, boss Mauricio Pochettino was in attendance for Poland’s loss to the Netherlands in Warsaw as he ramps up his scouting expeditions.
The subject of his mission was reportedly Lech Poznan midfielder Karol Linetty, who was a second-half substitute for Bayern Munich superstar Robert Lewandowski.
The 21-year old was said to be a target of the Argentine’s two years ago and his progression for Poznan since is believed to have reignited the interest in him.
Naturally a holding midfielder, he could provide a ready made replacement for the likes of Ryan Mason and Nabil Bentaleb, who’ve been linked with moves to London rivals Crystal Palace.
Considering his age and his nature for high intensity football, Linetty is seemingly a natural fit for the squad the former Southampton coach has crafted at White Hart Lane.
Will Spurs finish in the Top Four next season?
