Who cares about the league when Tottenham have a serious chance of winning the Champions League?! As ever, Mauricio Pochettino has worked wonders this season but, should he lift the biggest trophy of them all, they better get building a statue.
Spurs weren’t given the slightest chance of winning the Champions League after a miserable group stage but now they’re in the semi-finals, anything is possible.
Just imagine it. Mouth-watering.
To think that they could mark their stadium opening by blessing it with a European trophy is unthinkable but thanks to those players on the pitch, it’s now a genuine possibility.
Still, not to be a buzzkill here, but although it could pan out to be a successful season without signing a player, those behind the scenes in North London will surely realise the need to strengthen this summer to improve their chances in all competitions next season.
The next phase of the project has to be to get back to challenging for the Premier League title, as well as making this stage of the continent’s elite competition a frequent home for the club. What’s the point in the stadium otherwise?
To that end, Youri Tielemans has massively impressed since joining Leicester on-loan and he is player that Tottenham have since taken real notice of, with Belgian outlet HLN claiming earlier this month that Spurs were continuing to track the star ahead of a potential £40m bidding war.
Furthermore, the Mirror reported last week that Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers was concerned about potentially losing the Monaco ace to the likes of Spurs or Manchester United.
Tielemans, (who is valued at £19.8 million on Transfermarkt) could be seen as the replacement Spurs never got for Mousa Dembele, as the fellow Belgium international moved to China in the January window. Indeed, he’s shown an impressive level of quality since his move to the Foxes, looking great in his debut against Spurs at Wembley a few months ago.
The centre of midfield is sure to be an area that Tottenham improve upon this summer and Youri Tielemans is without a doubt the ideal signing for them to make. With Premier League and international experience already under his belt at the age of 21, Tottenham can be sure he would make a significant impact should they sign him.
Although his Leicester loan spell has been brief, Tielemans has been sensational.
With two goals and five assists, the Belgian youngster has shown exactly why he is destined for great things now and in the future.
