Tottenham Hotspur could be ready to make a real statement of intent and complete a signing which would blow away many of their top six Premier League rivals by bringing Borussia Dortmund winger Christian Pulisic to White Hart Lane ahead of the 2018/19 season.
According to CalcioInsider, the Lilywhites are ready to make such a move for the 19-year-old as Mauricio Pochettino looks to strengthen his squad for their debut season in their new look home next season.
It comes after the Daily Mirror reported that the USA international would be available at a very reasonable price of just £40 million, a bargain when considering that he is one of Europe’s most highly rated young talents.
Capable of playing on either flank with pace and fine dribbling, Pulisic would not have a natural role in Tottenham’s current set-up but could, like Heung-Min Son, adapt into more of a forward role to devastating effect.
At present, SkyBET make Liverpool the favourites whilst also suggesting that Arsenal, Bayern Munich, Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea and Real Madrid are all in the running for his signature. Beating such a host of clubs would not only be a blow to direct rivals, but would also show that Daniel Levy is prepared to spend to take his team to the top.
The opportunity to work with Mauricio Pochettino, who has shown what he can do with young players with big potential, may help Spurs, and his ability to do just that could make Pulisic the world-beater to add an extra hint of quality to an already promising Tottenham squad.
