Chelsea ended Tottenham’s title chase last season and the North Londoners are ready to topple the Blues this time around and win the ultimate prize. After last weekend’s results, Spurs are only four points behind Conte’s men.
Not to forget, the two teams will collide in the FA Cup semi final this weekend.
Manager Mauricio Pochettino was able to improve the quality of the squad last summer but the team failed in the European competitions. To make sure that they perform well in the continent next season, the Argentine manager must further reinforce his squad this summer by signing top players.
According to reports going on in the media, Spurs are looking to sign Michael Keane and Douglas Costa in the summer transfer window. The duo have a combined worth of 60 million pounds ($76million).
Telegraph claim that Dier may end up moving to Man United and in such a scenario, Tottenham are eyeing a move for Keane, who is rated around 30 million pounds. On the other hand, Mirror claim that Spurs are interested in signing the Bayern Munich star, who would also cost around 30 million pounds.
Dier has been absolutely fantastic under the management of Pochettino and Spurs must hold on to him at all costs. Keane has been influential for Burnley this season but he is not better than Eric.
Costa has mainly warmed the bench under Ancelotti this season and must move for first team football. Pochettino must sell Sissoko who has so far proved to be a big money flop. Douglas can effectively play on either flank and should be the perfect man to replace the French star.
This season, in just 13 league starts, the Brazilian attacker has directly contributed in 10 goals (4 goals and 6 assists).
