Tottenham target Youri Tielemans could be brilliant alongside Moussa Sissoko

Tottenham may have a Champions League final with Liverpool ahead of them to get excited about, but surely this summer they have to end their two-window streak of signing no players.

Spurs have made giant strides forward under Mauricio Pochettino, but the squad does need some improve going into next year.

The North London club desperately need to try find some new faces in midfield and playmaker Youri Tielemans should be a priority.

Spurs do have the 22-year-old on their radar (Daily Star) ahead of the summer, but it’s unclear on what his future holds.

He’s just enjoyed a brilliant loan spell in the second half of the season with Leicester City and will now return to parent club Monaco.

According to Sky Sports, Leicester are trying to push for a quick deal to sign the Belgium international, as they fear interest from Manchester United and Spurs.


Tielemans has shown he’s a perfect fit for English football, with three goals and five assists in 13 appearances for Leicester.


The central midfielder is extremely intelligent in possession and can spot a pass, while he’s got an eye for goal too.

He could potentially make a dream combination alongside current Spurs midfielder Moussa Sissoko if they were paired together next season.

Sissoko, who cost £30million (BBC), is a powerhouse in the centre of the park that has become a vital player in Pochettino’s team.

A Tielemans-Sissoko partnership would be a great blend of guile and strength, which would make them a better side.

Victor Wanyama and ex-player Mousa Dembele formed a great bond a few years back, and they could have their new version with this pair.
