Graphic: Tottenham Hotspur’s strongest line-up with Heung-Min Son included

White Hart Lane 4

Tottenham Hotspur endured a frustrating summer on the signings front.

Tottenham Hotspur ultimately failed in their attempt to sign Saido Berahino from fellow premier League outfit West Bromwich Albion, despite many expecting the deal to eventually materialise.

How the events unfolded was somewhat bizarre, and the striker himself was left frustrated as he took to social media site Twitter in order to express exactly what he made of it all, picked up by HITC.

Nonetheless, Spurs did at least make some important additions over the summer with the signatures of Toby Alderweireld and Heung-Min Son among the standouts.

Kieran Trippier, Kevin Wimmer and Clinton N’Jie were also brought in, but South Korea star Son is the pick the bunch and his potential partnership with Kane has the bearings of a fascinating attacking threat.

As per the graphic above, we’ve attempted to pinpoint the best XI available to boss Mauricio Pochettino though there are plenty of alternatives available – especially in the final third.

The strongest centre-back pairing has been pretty much evident from the first few games of the season, with Jan Vertonghen and Alderweireld forming an all-Belgian partnership in the middle.

Fullback options are up for debate, but Danny Rose and Kyle Walker have been the most consistent during Pochettino’s tenure as boss.

Midfield is a problem area for Spurs, and it’s quite surprising that they opted not to bring in a player to challenge regular duo Nabil Bentaleb and Ryan Mason throughout the entire summer.

The versatile Eric Dier has performed well in the middle – but can he keep it up for a whole season?

Options are aplenty in the final third, but Pochettino must be chomping at the bit in order to get Kane, Son and Christian Eriksen in the first-team, with Nacer Chadli able to provide width on either flank.

Clinton N’Jie, Mousa Dembele, Erik Lamela, Alex Pritchard and Dele Alli provide plenty of alternatives, though the latter two may struggle for game-time when everybody is fit.
