Why Spurs have been linked with their perfect summer addition today

Tottenham Hotspur would be making a smart move by signing Sofiane Feghouli from Valencia.

Tottenham Hotspur could be making the perfect addition to the squad if they are able to convince reported target Sofiane Feghouli to move to White Hart Lane.

The Daily Star carried a report suggesting that Feghouli, who currently plays for Valencia, was one of Tottenham's top targets this summer and he looks a great fit for the North London club.

The dynamic attacking midfielder has the ability to play anywhere in Spurs' trio of players behind the striker and his has all the attributes needed to slot in comfortably into a system devised by Mauricio Pochettino.

The Argentine boss demands that his teams play with a high level of intensity, while he also insists that his attacking players help out in a defensive sense - with the team expected to press from the front.

These are the exact skills which have made Feghouli so vital for Valancia over the past few years and it means that the transfer links to Spurs could be on the money.

The Lilywhites have actively been looking to strengthen their recruitment policy and have hired former Southampton man Paul Mitchell to oversee their transfer dealings.

Mitchell has a say over who joins the club and if he has recommended Feghouli then it would be a good way to start.

The Algeria international has been a key part of Valencia's side this season and his role in the team has grown in importance as the season has progressed.

His energy is now vital for them and he would certainly be an upgrade on the options in Tottenham's current squad.

At the moment Spurs have Andros Townsend, Erik Lamela, Nacer Chadli and Aaron Lennon as their options out wide, but none of the quartet have found any consistency this season.

Feghouli, meanwhile, has had to cope with the pressure of being his team's main man for over a year now and he knows the importance of staying on top of his game at all times. 

It means that if he did join Spurs he would be able to deal with the demands of representing them and it could be a very successful piece of business from the North London club if it were to go through.
