Tottenham look to add firepower

Despite eventually finishing in third place in last season’s Premier League, having pushed for a shot at the title until the final weeks of the campaign, Tottenham players and supporters alike will look forward to next season with a renewed sense of optimism.

With manager Mauricio Pochettino having fully committed his future to the White Hart Lane based Club, plans are in place as to how best combat the addition task of Champions League football, as well as once again mounting a Premier League challenge.

Having been linked with a whole host of names since the end of the season, including Marseille’s Michy Batshuayi and French international Alexandre Lacazette, the latest name rumoured to be on Pochettino’s wish list is Spartak Moscow’s Quincy Promes. The Dutch attacker has an excellent goal scoring record in Russia, with 31 goals in 58 games, and could now make the move to England having failed to agree terms on a new contract. Promes could well be the type of player to take Tottenham to the next level, and why not make use of best offers from online bookmakers and back Spurs for Premier League glory next season.

Tottenham have 11 players participating in the upcoming European Championships, and will certainly be hoping to welcome back their prized assets with a clean bill of health. With England contingent Danny Rose, Eric Dier, Dele Ali and Harry Kane looking like certain starters for England’s first match against Russia, backing Roy Hodgson’s men with a free bet found at could well prove fruitful.

One man who will be missing from the start of the new season is South Korea’s Heung-Min Son, who has reportedly been given permission by Tottenham to represent his country in the upcoming Olympic Games in Rio. Despite clubs not being required to release players for such an event, it seems the club have agreed to the willingness of Son to take part come August.

With the return of Europe’s biggest club competition to Tottenham, or Wembley to be specific, increasing the optimism amongst supporters, Pochettino now for the first time in his career will be under pressure to challenge on all fronts. The former Espanyol and Southampton manager will be forced to learn very quickly on the perils of being at the top of the game.
