Alan Brazil suggests a transfer policy for Tottenham Hotspur this summer


Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Alan Brazil feels an overhaul of players is needed at White Hart Lane this summer.

Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Alan Brazil explained on his breakfast show for talkSPORT that he feels his old club need a big overhaul in terms of their squad.

Brazil suggested that Mauricio Pochettino needs to have complete control over transfers at White Hart Lane, as he looks to push Spurs on towards the top four next season.

“I honestly think Tottenham just need six out and six in, I really do and I think the coach, the manager, he is the one who has to go and buy them,” he said.

Spurs didn’t go far wrong in their quest of Champions League football last season, eventually finishing fifth, but there are a number of players in the first team ranks who have arguably failed to impress.

Paulinho, Younes Kaboul, Etienne Capoue, Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor among others, are all examples of players who could realistically be moved on by the club’s chairman Daniel Levy.

The club have already moved quickly to secure talented young defender Kevin Wimmer on a deal, with Monaco’s Anthony Martial still a target for the club according to the Daily Mail.

It’s vital that Pochettino has total control over transfers because he’s the man who is best placed to advise on the sort of players Tottenham need, based on the individuals who already form part of his squad.

If the gaffer is given complete control over transfers, it’s also easier to work out where the buck stops if the new arrivals fail to impress in the Premier League and the Europa League.

Tottenham have god resources if they want to go after a large overhaul of players, with a chairman in Daniel Levy who will get the best price with any players leaving, which will only back up the funds the manager has to go after new players.
