How Tottenham could line up next season, including Dele Alli and Alex Pritchard

Tottenham Hotspur Action

After what has been a transitional season for Spurs under Mauricio Pochettino, this coming transfer window promises plenty of activity.

Almost certainly heading for the exit are the likes of Etienne Capoue, Emmanuel Adebayor and Younes Kaboul, as Pochettino looks to put his stamp on the squad.

Hugo Lloris is also rumoured to be considering his future after Spurs’ failure to secure Champions League football, with Manchester United, PSG and Real Madrid among the clubs interested, according to the Mirror. Jan Vertonghen shares similar ambitions and Spurs may struggle to retain the Belgian's services.

Dele Alli, a £5 million January acquisition, and Alex Pritchard, a youth team graduate, return to Spurs off the back of fantastic loan campaigns at MK Dons and Brentford respectively. Pochettino has demonstrated a willingness to give youth a chance and both players will be determined to force their way into his first team plans.

Kevin Wimmer looks poised to complete a £5 million switch from FC Koln, after the 22-year-old Austrian international admitted to holding talks with Pochettino in a recent interview with Bild.

Potential Spurs line up next season:

Vorm (31)

Walker(24)   Dier(21)   Wimmer(22)   Rose(24)

Dele Alli(19)   Bentaleb(20)

Lamela(23)   Eriksen(23)   Pritchard(21)



Spurs’ starting XI in the victory over Arsenal in February had an average age of just 24 years and 37 days - the youngest fielded in the Premier League this season. The team above has an average age of 22 years and 234 days.

Should Spurs keep their faith in youth or are more experienced signings required?
