Tottenham will launch to next level in CL with stunning swoop for exit-bound powerhouse champion


While many pundits and fans have been left bemoaning Tottenham’s lack of silverware this season, there can be little argument that they have still made significant progress in comparison to previous years.

The Lilywhites need only stretch their minds back a couple of seasons and they will remember a time when they were mere hopefuls for European qualification, battling it out with a whole host of other sides to try and make the Europa League.

Fast forward to present day and Spurs are firmly established as top four regulars, having smashed their way into the upper echelon of Premier League clubs and overtaken the likes of fierce rivals Arsenal into the push for a Champions League spot.

This season saw Mauricio Pochettino and his men take a huge step on the continent, going unbeaten in the group stage – including a draw and a win over reigning champions and eventual finalists Real Madrid – before losing out to last season’s runners up Juventus in the knock out stages.

Upon reflection, many stated a lack of experience of big game situations as Tottenham’s downfall, and with that in mind they really should be eyeing up a stunning swoop for Yaya Toure.

The Manchester City powerhouse, who was part of the north west club’s potentially record breaking title winning campaign, has been confirmed by manager Pep Guardiola, via the BBC, to be leaving at the end of the season, after just nine league appearances this season.

At 34-years-old, the Ivory Coast icon is reaching the end of his career but with so many young talents at Spurs, his knowledge and experience could be vital in taking the club to the next level, both domestically and in Europe.

City’s loss will undoubtedly be another club’s gain – and with Tottenham pushing for future success, it must be them to make a move, even if it would come as a massive shock with all the midfield talent already at their disposal.

In other Tottenham news, the club are set for a massive profit from a sensational summer swoop.
