Tottenham Hotspurs are willing to break the bank for star duo to remove their woes of the new season. Pochetinho is facing a familiar problem in keeping up the consistency level with his side falling short of title chase once again.
Spurs behaved gallantly at the start of the season picking up consecutive wins, which includes a 3-0 thrashing of Manchester United at Old Trafford. But then their performance dried out.
Losing away at Watford began all the wrong things, ending eventually with a 2-1 win over Brighton prior to this weekend. Defeat to Inter Milan on the opening day of the Champions league also counts itself to that frustrating period.
However, Spurs recovered dominantly with a comfortable victory over Huddersfield town in the latest encounter with a belief of change in atmosphere.
One of the factors of their poor run of show can be their lack of activity in the transfer market ahead of the season. Poch told head of the club’s board Daniel Levy that he is happy with zero transaction made proclaiming that he is happy looking at his present side.
However, it is now signalling a negative impact on the pitch for Spurs getting a bit of stick. Harry Kane’s inactiveness in front of goal is turning out to be a major concern added by struggles on full back positions and midfield dominance. Hence, the club are looking for solutions in the next window to rectify their previous mistakes.
According to Teamtalk, the North London heavyweights are ready to splash £100m for a double swoop of PSV Eindhoven stars Jorrit Hendrix and Steven Bergwijn.
The interest for this playmaker is direct and quite obvious. For the Dutch side, Hendrix and Bergwijn have proved to be assets in obtaining points and scoring enormous goals in their campaign of title defence.
The former plays as a central midfielder and acts as a dictator of passes while the latter is an aggressive winger with pace and agility, both fitting into the system that Spurs work on.
Using Hendrix, midfield issues can be terminated because he provides a better cover up than Mousa Dembele considering his age and is a box to box steam engine. His eye to lash on loose balls, provoking counters and feeding into forwards as quickly as possible make him one of the best in Eredivisie.
Hendrix can turn out to be a key figure in midfield alongside Dier by forcing the English man back for a defensive blockade while he move up field and vice versa. In the case of Bergwijn, he is a special chap coming up from PSV’s academy rank.
The star filled winger loves to produce something out of nothing with his quick feet and silky skills down the left hand side. His pacey affair effects counter attacking play for his side alongside his pinpoint finishing. He can prove a decisive player in his position for Spurs in battle with Son Heung-Min for the same.
It is a waiting period now for the club currently playing at Wembley because of developments in their new stadium to rouse themselves by this duo negotiations. Uncertainty remains over business concerns from Levy but if they are to really step up the gas to compete for titles this season, they should make the most in order to secure the deal.
