Tottenham to launch late bids for top-quality Premier League pair

Posted by

Tottenham are lining up last-ditch bids for two Premier League players as Mauricio Pochettino seeks to strengthen his White Hart Lane squad.

The Daily Telegraph reports that the North London side will make offers for West Brom forward Saido Berahino and Southampton battler Victor Wanyama.

Pochettino has seen his Spurs side stutter through their opening four Premier League fixtures, during which Tottenham have collected three draws and are still without a win, and the Argentine manager would do well to bring in a player or two before the transfer window slams shut at 6pm on Tuesday.

Tottenham have looked toothless up front, with Harry Kane failing to hit the heights he reached last season, and a move for Saido Berahino would greatly improve matters in the final third.

Spurs have already failed with one bid for the 22-year-old (via the Daily Mail) and one wonders if the Baggies will be looking to accept an improved offer given that they have already forked out a club record £12m to bring in Salomon Rondon (via BBC Sport) and also signed Rickie Lambert from Liverpool.

Pochettino finally offloaded big-money flop Roberto Soldado, the Spaniard has since made an instant impact at Villarreal, and Berahino is a proven Premier League marksman who has a bright future who could be just what Tottenham are looking for.

A move for Kenyan international Wanyama would offer Pochettino extra quality in the centre of the park and Tottenham have already moved to trim options in this regard with the likes of Paulinho, Benjamin Stambouli, Lewis Holtby and Etienne Capoue having all left this summer.
