Tottenham Hotspur fans in the Transfer Tavern will be looking ahead to the end of the season with confidence that their side will finish with a Champions League spot, having increased the gap between them and Chelsea to eight points.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side has been playing impressively throughout the campaign, however, he has already identified areas that the club needs to improve and the centre of defence has been made a priority.
The local Spurs fans will be concerned with the news that Toby Alderweireld could be set to leave the team after they continue to fail with contract talks, but will be encouraged by the interest shown in Jose Gimenez, according to a report in Italy.
Tutto Mercato Web has made the claims that Pochettino is considering a move for the 23-year-old Atletico Madrid defender, who despite making over 100 appearances for the side, has struggled to get a starting place. Tottenham is likely to have a battle for the defender’s signature, with the likes of Juventus, Manchester United and Arsenal all rumoured to be interested as well.
Tottenham fans in the Tavern will be encouraged by the news that Pochettino is already targeting new players to sign in the summer, especially as it appears Alderweireld is set to depart. Should the Belgium international leave, Spurs fans will want to see a deal done as soon as possible for Gimenez, considering all the interest being shown in him.
