Discussing three players who would transform Tottenham Hotspur's starting line-up.

This season has been one of mixed fortunes for Tottenham Hotspur, with their promising young side impressing and, for quite some time, the prospect of silverware being a distinct possibility.

Ultimately that came to nothing, with defeats to Fiorentina in the Europa League and Chelsea in the League Cup coming swiftly and devastatingly.

But whatever happens in the next three months, Tottenham’s supporters should be proud of their side and the emerging talents that should inspire them to future successes.

In Harry Kane, Ryan Mason, Nabil Bentaleb, Eric Dier (whose emergence means a defender did not make the list below) and Christian Eriksen, Spurs have a quintet the envy of many clubs across the land, and if manager Mauricio Pochettino adds to his squad wisely in the summer, next season could be even better.

Here we take a look at three players Tottenham should attempt to sign; a trio who would arguably turn them into Premier League title contenders:

Morgan Schneiderlin

As well as Bentaleb and Mason have been playing this season, Tottenham are crying out for an experienced quality midfielder and Southampton’s Morgan Schneiderlin fits the bill.

Pochettino knows him well from his days at St Mary’s and reports have claimed Spurs remain interested in a player they were linked with last summer.

Southampton would be loath to let him go, but if Tottenham could sign him he could make a huge amount of difference, especially in big matches.

Memphis Depay

The president of PSV Eindhoven recently went on record to say that Tottneham were willing to pay £15million for Memphis Depay, but such has been the winger’s progress that he is now likely to go for a lot more than that.

The 21-year-old Netherlands international is one of the best young players in Europe and he would be a far better option than either Nacer Chadli or Erik Lamela.

Alexandre Lacazette

As well as Harry Kane has been doing this season, Tottenham cannot rely solely on the young forward and Alexandre Lacazette would be a wonderful addition.

The 23-year-old has been scoring for fun this season and while his current club Lyon will surely do all they can to keep him, Tottenham would be wise to make a move.

If he did arrive, he could form a devastating strike partnership with Kane or allow Pochettino to rotate to keep both players fresh throughout a gruelling campaign.
