Tottenham’s top four rivals Liverpool and Manchester United are reinforcing their squads with quality players and Spurs must act swiftly to do the same if they are to earn the CL qualification spot next season.
The North Londoners have signed a proven quality defender in the form of Toby Alderweireld but they also need to improve in midfield and attack.
There have been reports that Spurs are closing in to sign Everton pair Mirallas and McCarthy for €33 million this summer. We look into how the duo can fit in Tottenham’s line up if they do eventually arrive.
Mirallas played mainly as an attacker on the right hand side of the field with Toffees and netted 11 goals. He should replace record signing Erik Lamela in the starting XI and join Eriksen and Chadli in attack behind Kane.
On the other hand, McCarthy should form a central midfield partnership with holding midfielder Nabil Bentaleb. Here is how we believe Spurs will line up with Mirallas & McCarthy.
