Two Players That Tottenham Can Sign To Lift Their Wembley Curse
Tottenham Hotspur were held to a tame draw in their final game before the international break as they made a mixed start to their league campaign, picking up a win, a draw and a loss in the first three games of the season. Mauricio Pochettino has been quiet for most of the transfer window but in the last few days, he has been actively trying to add some of the finest stars in Europe to his squad before the deadline day.
Spurs have a decent squad at their disposal but need a couple of first team additions to compete for the title yet again. But with time running out, they will have to act quickly to lure top transfer targets to the club this summer. So how should Pochettino go about it? Here are two such players who can instantly lift the Wembley-curse Spurs are currently bound under:
Thomas Lemar (AS Monaco)
The French attacking midfielder has suddenly become one of the most wanted players in the current transfer market. At just 22, he has established himself as one of the best in his position in Europe and is wanted by the likes of Arsenal, Juventus and Liverpool, the latter of which are now making sensational efforts to sign him up this summer.
Liverpool have reportedly made a bid of €80m for his services, which might be enough to land him but the lack of width in attack for Spurs should see them sabotage this bid and make one of their own. At his age, Lemar fits the bill perfectly for Pochettino and Spurs should do all it takes to land him, mainly to improve their start to the domestic campaign.
Serge Aurier (PSG)
One player extensively linked with a move to the club is Serge Aurier. The troublesome full-back from Ivory Coast has been solid at both ends of the field for the French giants but his lack of discipline has seen them put him up for sale. Manchester United were also interested in his signature but have decided against it and Spurs should take his chance to snap him up.
Reports claim that Spurs have agreed a deal in principle with the player but that Aurier prefers a move to Manchester. However, Pochettino will know how to get the best out of him and Tottenham is the best destination for the 24-year old. He would help the club revive some lost form early in the season.
