The title slipped out of Tottenham Hotspur’s grasp last night and don’t our Spurs supporting punters know it. It’s only the bar that’s propping them up this evening.

Still, the nature of life under Mauricio Pochettino is one that seeks relentless improvement and pushing ahead towards what will more than likely be a Champions League campaign next term.

Indicative of that are reports from the Daily Telegraph that the club have already opened discussions with Marseille over hotshot forward Michy Batshuayi.

While Harry Kane is undoubtedly the star striker at White Hart Lane, the options behind the England international look a little light heading into a busy season next term.

A move for Saido Berahino failed last year, while the transfer of Fulham’s Moussa Dembele fell at the final hurdle in January.

Now, they are said to have opened talks with the French club over the possibility of bringing the Belgian marksman to North London.

He’s been in good form in Southern France this term, notching an impressive 21 goals across all competitions this season.

West Ham United and Stoke City have both been linked for the 22-year old, who is also noted for his ability to link play in the final third.

The report also claims Pochettino could revive his interest in Southampton enforcer Victor Wanyama, who they failed to land last summer.

Is Batshuayi worth the hype?
