With news that Tottenham Hotspur’s move for PSV winger Memphis Depay could fall through, CaughtOffside looks at five alternative winger targets that could make good signings for Mauricio Pochettino this summer.
Spurs have strengthened well in defence so far this summer, and look set to seal a deal for Villarreal centre-back Mateo Musacchio to come in alongside promising youngsters Eric Dier and Ben Davies at the back, but attack remains something of a concern for the new boss, who has made Depay one of his main targets.
The 20-year-old was in highly impressive form for the Netherlands at this summer’s World Cup, and looks a player ready to make the step up to the Premier League, with Manchester United also thought to be interested in snapping him up.
Still, with a proposed swap deal falling through due to Nacer Chadli’s reluctance to move to PSV, Spurs may now have to consider other options, with five possible targets listed below.
5) Wilfried Zaha (Manchester United)
Once regarded as one of the most promising young players in England, Wilfried Zaha has somewhat lost his way at Manchester United after struggling to break into the first-team last season. A disappointing loan spell at Cardiff City followed and the player looks likely to make way this summer as new manager Louis van Gaal plots a reshuffle of his squad. Whether on loan or on a permanent deal, Zaha may be worth a gamble from Spurs as they look to inject some pace and flair into their side. Still young and full of potential, Zaha could prove a top signing for the club if they can get the best out of him, and he may be a good signing if he is available on the cheap this summer.
