Pochettino Prepared to Sign $26million Versatile Player for Spurs

Tottenham Hotspur splashed the cash and signed Vincent Janssen in the last summer’s transfer window but the Dutch international failed to shine last season.

In the absence of star striker Harry Kane, the former AZ Alkmaar center forward could not step up and Spurs suffered.

In such a scenario, Pochettino must sell Janssen and replace him with a striker who can cover Kane and start as the lone center forward up front in his absence. One such player linked with a move to the North Londoners is Man City’s Iheanacho.

According to an exclusive report covered by The Sun, Pochettino is keen on signing the young African starlet, who is mainly a center forward but can effectively play as a left winger and also as a secondary striker if needed.

The 20-year-old Nigerian international excelled big time for the Sky Blues when Pellegrini was in charge of the club. In the 2015-16 season, Kelechi scored 14 goals and provided 7 assists for the Citizens.

However, under the management of Pep Guardiola, he could only start 8 games in the last campaign, scored 7 goals and provided 3 assists.

As per the provided Sun link, Leicester have matched City’s 20 million pounds asking price ($26million) to sign him but Tottenham can hijack the deal knowing that Man City are interested in signing Kyle Walker.

We shall see how the transfer saga unfolds in the coming days.

    leave ihneacho for leicester city. because they may sell vardy next season. or coming years. in my words now he is should be a leicester player.

    Tottenham look for a champions League ace.

    if manchester united and mourinho wants eric dier for 60 million. sell him by telling them that by a condition.

    if manchester united wants eric dier for 60 million. we wants anthony martial in exchange for 30 million. then only we allow for eric dier sale.

    convince martial with a offer. he is powerful weapon in champions League.

    manchester united bought him by telling he is next theiry henry.

    if real Madrid sign mbappe. arsenal won’t get it.
    Tottenham should buy martial. as a reply for arsenal buying lacazatte.

    try adrien silva for 1 year loan. don’t waste 26 million like Tottenham did in soldado deal.

    sent Vincent Janssen on 1 year loan for improvement to Southampton. if he won’t improve give him to Southampton permanently.

    if Tottenham sell him permanently to Southampton after loan. ask them to give pochetino favorite jay rodriguez as replacement.

    21 million sisoko plus 10 million. first ask like this then 21 million sisoko plus 15 million.

    lemar is needed in Tottenham for champions League. tell them we wants lemar as son replacement due to his injuries. because of him this mbappe was getting goals.

    if Tottenham can sign him then it will be huge boost for Harry Kane and alli.
