Tottenham should cast eye over former target RIyad Mahrez

Tottenham can look forward to a first full season in their new stadium next year and the club should try fund a marquee signing in the summer.

Spurs are competing for top four football in the Premier League and have reached the Champions League semi-finals this season, which highlights the incredible progress.

But manager Mauricio Pochettino could do with some extra options in his squad and it’s important they don’t stand still.

The North London club should considering eyeing Manchester City’s Riyad Mahrez, who was a former target for them.

Spurs were interested in Mahrez back in 2017 when he was at Leicester City (Evening Standard), but weren’t prepared to pay a £50million price tag back then.

The attacker is now on the books with Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium and his first campaign with them is drawing to a close.

 

He’s managed 11 goals and 11 assists in 42 games across all competitions, but not been a regular starter and had to deal with rotation in the squad.

According to the Daily Mail now, the Algeria international has made his displeasure known at Manchester City due to his lack of opportunities.

With Mahrez showing unrest at the Etihad, Spurs should consider eyeing the left-footed winger and perhaps even rekindling interest in him.

The former PFA Player of the Year has still been directly involved in 22 goals for Manchester City without regular starts and has immense individual quality.

The 28-year-old would add some real talent to the Spurs frontline and would be an exciting marquee signing for the new stadium.
