ESPN Pundit Urges Tottenham Hotspur To Move For Paris Saint-Germain Star

ESPN Pundit Paul Mariner feels Tottenham Hotspur should make an approach to sign Layvin Kurzawa from Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season. The left-sided player has been touted for an exit from Parc des Princes this summer with Spurs deemed as one of the top sides interested in his signature.

Speaking on ESPN FC, Mariner believes Spurs need to improve the overall depth of their squad, if they are to offer a strong challenge for the Premier League next season. He added to recommend the signing of Kurzawa, who is capable of playing anywhere on the left side of the pitch, he said: “I think what we’ve found with Tottenham is, when we start talking about depth, everybody’s panicking when Harry Kane goes down.

“(Heung-Min) Son’s come in and done a fantastic job, but they need strength in depth. If you’re really going to challenge for the Premier League or challenge for the Champions League, so on and so forth, you need that depth. So, if Pochettino feels [Kurzawa] is the right type of player that can slot in and he knows his character, I think it might work.”

After making progress over the past two seasons, Spurs are currently in a struggle to finish in the top-four of the Premier League, and much of it has to do with their limited spending compared to some of their major league rivals including Manchester City and Manchester United. They remain third favourites, with Novibet making their chances at 3/1. Their wage structure has also come for criticism from their own players including Danny Rose, and it may not be a surprise if they have to offload a couple of first-team members before reinforcing the squad.

Aside from Rose, Toby Alderweireld is another who has been at odds with the Spurs’ hierarchy regarding his contract, and reports suggest that the pair could be offloaded, possibly to one of the club’s direct rivals during the summer transfer window.
