White Hart Lane boss Mauricio Pochettino has successfully offloaded a number of under-performing members of his Spurs squad this summer and knows full well he needs to bring in top quality signings if his side are to seriously challenge for a top-four spot.
Tottenham are yet to pick up a Premier League win in 2014/15, drawing three of their opening four matches, and are lacking strength in depth in a number of areas.
Pochettino has sold midfielders Paulinho, Etienne Capoue, Lewis Holtby and Benjamin Stambouli, and The Sun claims the Argentine manager is ready to offer £15m for West Ham enforcer Cheikhou Kouyate whilst also continuing to pursue Southampton defensive midfielder Victor Wanyama.
The Sun also states that Tottenham will look to make a late move to bring in long-term target Saido Berahino, who has already been the subject of failed bids from the North London club (via The Guardian).
Though Tottenham have brought in Clinton N’Jie and Son Heung-min Pochettino still finds himself short on striking options with Harry Kane being overly relied upon, and looking decidedly tired and blunted as a result. Berahino could offer Spurs a strong supporting option.
Pochettino successfully found a buyer for big-money flop Roberto Soldado and the Spaniard has proceeded to net in each of his opening two appearances for La Liga side Villarreal.
