Tottenham target Chelsea attacker and Bundesliga forward in double summer transfer swoop

Posted by

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has been linked with moves to bring in some much-needed attacking reinforcements, with the Daily Mail claiming the White Hart Lane side are keen on Bundesliga star Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and Chelsea winger Victor Moses.

Last term, Pochettino had to overly rely on youngster Harry Kane, the 21-year-old scoring 31 goals in all competitions, and the Argentine international would do well to bring in further options to boost his attack.

Borussia Dortmund forward Aubameyang has impressed over the course of two seasons in Germany, and the Daily Mail believe Arsenal are also keen on the Gabon international.

Forwards Roberto Soldado, Emmanuel Adebayor and Erik Lamela scored just five Premier League goals between them in 2015/16, and this led to the North London side’s goal-scoring burden weighing heavily on England youngster Kane.

Chelsea winger Moses has spent the past two seasons out on loan, at Liverpool and Stoke City, and the Daily Mail believes the Nigerian international is now on Tottenham’s summer shopping list.

Pochettino’s interest in signing a winger is no surprise given the likes of Aaron Lennon [via the Daily Express] and Andros Townsend [via ESPN] have both been strongly linked with summer exits with both players failing to impress last season.

24-year-old Moses has joined Chelsea on their pre-season tour of North America, but may find it tough to force his way into Jose Mourinho’s starting eleven with the likes of Eden Hazard, Willian and Juan Cuadrado ahead of the former Crystal Palace man in the Blues pecking order.

Despite this, Mourinho has indicated that he is prepared to give the Super Eagles forward a first-team opportunity at Stamford Bridge this season, should he remain at the club [Standard].
