Three players Tottenham should sign on deadline day
Tottenham have had a surprisingly quiet transfer window in which they have only recently sprung into action with the signings of Davinson Sanchez, Paulo Gazzaniga and Juan Foyth. However, with only one of those players likely to go straight into the first team, more signings seems likely.
Here are three players who Mauricio Pochettino could be considering adding to his squad before the 11pm deadline:
Aurier’s move to Tottenham is at such an advanced stage that fans are left waiting for confirmation with Sky Sports saying that an announcement is imminent after the Ivory Coast international was granted a work permit.
The Paris Saint-Germain man has been one of Ligue Un’s most threatening attacking full-backs and would be a clear step up from Kieran Trippier at right-back. Whilst Kyle Walker may have departed this summer, Aurier could be a ready made replacement if Spurs can tie up a deal.
Perhaps a surprising move, Origi could be heading out from Liverpool on loan and his father Mike has hinted to DH.be that Tottenham are one potential destination for the young Belgian centre forward.
Origi has shown that he has what it takes to score goals in the Premier League, something that current second choice striker Vincent Janssen has struggled to do since his arrival last summer. Liverpool may not be keen to loan him to a rival, but it could be worth a shot for Tottenham.
Linked with Tottenham throughout the summer, the London Evening Standard say that the club are now deciding whether or not to make an offer after seeing Chelsea’s £25 million bid rejected by Everton. Barkley is in the final year of his contract so Everton are not in a strong negotiating position.
With that in mind, alongside the fact that Barkley is set to spend the next three months on the sidelines with a hamstring injury, could delay any potential move until January. If Everton do want him off the wage bill, then they may rush into a deadline day sale.
