Tottenham Hotspur media round-up: Pochettino drawing up interesting transfer strategy


A round up of news stories this morning related to Tottenham Hotspur.

The Daily Mail has reported that Mauricio Pochettino will target players aged under 26 in the transfer market this summer.

The paper claims that the manager and talented scouted are drawing up a strategy, which will follow the blueprint of the manager’s current team.

Morgan Schneiderlin, Jay Rodriguez and Danny Ings are all listed as potential targets for the club.

Former Tottenham Hotspur boss Tim Sherwood has been quoted by NBC suggesting the club wanted to sell Harry Kane.

Tottenham’s in form attacking star has just been called up to the England senior squad after his impact this season.

However, Sherwood has claimed that he might not still be at Spurs with officials previously wanting to move him on.

“It’s great I resisted the temptation to get rid of him last January because perhaps he wouldn’t be the star he is for Tottenham. I would never have allowed him to be sold when I was there,” he said.

England boss Roy Hodgson has urged Kane not to go on tour with the club at the end of the season, as reported by ESPN.

Tottenham are set to play a friendly game in Australia as part of their global marketing plans.

However, the England boss has suggested that playing for the country’s under-21 side is more important for Kane’s development.

“Personally speaking, playing for England at Under-21 level at a tournament is more important than a friendly in Australia,” he said.
