Wanyama out, squad quality bettered: Potential consequences of Tottenham’s midfield swoop

Tottenham have enjoyed one of their better starts to a Premier League but you wouldn’t know it, the way the club is talked about.

With the whole stadium kerfuffle and no new signings over the summer, Spurs have done extremely well to keep progressing as a team on the pitch under the guidance of Mauricio Pochettino.

With the Argentine in charge, Tottenham look a team that are getting better by the game and that gives fans some much-needed happiness, seeing as they still cant get in their new stadium.

When they will is still unknown but there may just be some new players to accompany their trip from Wembley to the new ground, with The Mirror reporting that Spurs are keen admirers of Watford’s Abdoulaye Doucoure.

The Frenchman has been a big hit this season as well as last, with the pace, energy and ability to make it as one of the league’s best defensive midfielders.

What could the potential consequences of this move mean for Tottenham…

Victor Wanyama out

The Kenyan midfielder is one of robust quality and he always does a job when called upon. However, whilst links continue with Doucoure, the Frenchman has a lot more technical traits that could be more handy for Tottenham in the starting 11.

Indeed, while Wanyama is obviously a solid central midfielder on his day, the injury problems look to have mounted on him and Doucoure would be a much more dynamic option. It’d be sad to see the former Saints man depart, but Old Father Time hasn’t been kind to him.

Squad quality a lot better with Doucoure

His progression over the last few seasons has been immense and with four assists to his name this season, as well as playing every minute in the Premier League thus far, it’s clear to see why Tottenham want him in and around their squad.

Few would doubt the quality Tottenham have in their squad, it’s just a case of freshening it up now.
