Spurs – Midfielder move Accepted, $16.5m Signing Close

Pochettino-TottenhamTottenham supporters will be delighted after capturing three defenders in the form of Alderweireld, Trippier and Wimmer this summer but now the club must focus on improving midfield and attack.

As far as the midfield department is concerned, Spurs have already sold expensive signing Paulinho. Unfortunately, the Brazilian proved to be a massive flop at White Hart Lane.

Moreover, according to reports, Spurs have accepted a bid from Watford to sell another midfielder in the form of Benjamin Stambouli.

The 24 year old French international could only feature 12 times in the league for Spurs and started mere 6 games.

The North Londoners must focus on signing a versatile midfielder to reinforce the department adequately.

On the other hand, Pochettino’s search for a striker might be complete as Tottenham are closing in to sign Fernando Llorente from Juventus.

According to Metro, the Spanish international is ready to accept move to White Hart Lane after Tottenham made $16.5 million offer to hire his services.

The Italian champions secured two forward signings this summer in the form of young Paulo Dybala from Palermi and experienced striker Mario Mandzukic from Atletico.

Hence, the departure of Llorente from the Old Lady should not bother the Serie A champions much. For Tottenham, the 30 year old striker will be a quality addition.

    now try to sign Fernando llornte for 1 year loan because if he becomes a flop in the premier League like soldado, that will be a great blunder because we are wasting a lot of money. first buy him on loan and after this coming season we can look if he is playing well sign him as permanent.

    now sell lamela to juventus for 25 million and swap Fernando llornte for 1 year loan.

    sign ciro immobile from BorrusiA dortmund for 18 million because borrusiA dortmund is relegated, and he is a Italy player.
    graiziano pelle is a Italy player and he is super player in Southampton.
    so signing this 25 year old will be interesting addition.
    sell other unwanted players and buy lamela replacement. buy lamela replacement as Yacine brahimi for 25 million.
