By all accounts, Tottenham under the management of Mauricio Pochettino have been improving with each passing season. Premier League runners-up to Chelsea in the recently concluded season and an appearance in the FA Cup semi-final stage displays Spurs’ ability to compete for silverware each campaign.
But eventually, Pochettino will need to start lifting trophies. The Argentine tactician has outstanding talent in the likes of Harry Kane and Dele Alli but will need to add the pieces this summer that may finally put together the championship puzzle.
Betting odds change related to high profile transfer as seen on sport.netbet.co.uk keep changing each passing day, and the club have many options in the coming weeks. We examine five players that could make the difference for Tottenham in the 2017-18 season.
5Ross Barkley – Everton – MF
The Spurs attack is potent, as no Premier League side scored more goals last term (86). Solidifying the midfield with Everton’s Ross Barkley may see production in the opposing half rise even further.
Physical and possessing quality on the ball, the 23-year-old’s progression is bound to continue and can be productive within Pochettino’s fast-paced system at Tottenham.
Barkley’s experience with the English national team would be an extra boost as well, as his familiarity with many of his potential team-mates can help to make his transition a smooth one.
