Tottenham Hotspur Opinion: Two midfield targets to aid Spurs’ title push

Tottenham Hotspur have certainly evolved into a European superpower now and their involvement in the Champions League final against Liverpool last season is only further proof of this fact.

Despite doing extremely well to get to the final at the Wanda Metropolitano, Spurs seemed to completely lose the plot when it mattered most. The Liverpool midfielders dominated proceedings right from the opening knockings of what was a tactical game of football.

Although Mauricio Pochettino does have names like Lucas Moura, Heung-Min Son, Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli to choose from, their internal weaknesses were exposed by Klopp’s explosive playing style and for all their efforts, they ended up having nothing to show for it.

The game was definitely lost in the midfield as Georginio Wijnaldum and Fabinho were absolutely spectacular in the centre of the park. The Anfield duo dominated proceedings right from the start and never really allowed Spurs’ creative players to get going.

The fact that they got completely neutralised by a couple of midfield destroyers is a worrying sign indeed and it only exemplifies the need for back-up midfielders at the new stadium.

According to a recent report by the Guardian, Mauricio Pochettino is said to be waiting on Daniel Levy to deliver his summer transfer targets. It has been suggested that this list of potential signings includes Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele and Roma star Nicolo Zaniolo.

Here are the 2 players that Spurs should sign to challenge for the title:

The French international midfielder is only 22 but shows amazing composure and maturity while out on the field. A strong man by stature, the youngster gets around the pitch with ease and puts himself about in attempts to win the ball back quickly as well.

He is extremely sharp on the ball and has a knack for cutting out passes by reading the play in midfield. Able to move the ball around quickly, Ndombele’s destructive style is one of the missing pieces in the Spurs puzzle.

Nicolo Zaniolo

Nicolo Zaniolo

The Italian international winger has been one of the Serie A’s shining stars over the course of last season and his performances have seemingly impressed Pochettino quite heavily. Capable of playing anywhere across the midfield line, Zaniolo’s tall figure gives him a physical edge over most players.

He uses his physicality well and guards the ball in order to bring teammates into the game. The youngster is an excellent dribbler and also has a mean through ball in his arsenal. His attacking creativity would be a huge boost to Spurs as well.
