Tottenham have narrowed down their January targets to a trio of attacking midfielders, according to reports from the Evening Standard.
Everton’s Ross Barkley is a target for Mauricio Pochettino, considering the England international is out of contract in 18 months, and has not had the easiest ride under new manager Ronald Koeman.
The 23-year-old’s potential is well documented and obvious, however, not yet realised. Although he has been on the map for a long time now, he is still a young player, and could be greatly helped by Pochettino.
Second on their list is a player who was sought rather publicly in the summer transfer window, Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha.
The former Man United man was seemingly hell-bent on a move away from Selhurst Park before the start of the season and could well have his head turned once again by a move to north London.
Finally, Spurs are looking outside of the Premier League at a move for Schalke playmaker Max Meyer.
The 21-year-old already has over 100 Bundesliga appearances to his name and, despite having a quiet season so far with just one goal and four assists, his talent is undeniable and could, like Barkley, be another to benefit from Pochettino’s adeptness for taking young players to the next level.
