Three Anderlecht players Tottenham could buy in January

With Mauricio Pochettino facing the Belgians tonight, it could be the ideal opportunity to scout potential new signings.

Tottenham take on Belgian side Anderlecht in the Europa League tonight and will hope for another three points to move one step closer to the next round of the continental competition.

Despite the action on the field taking precedence, facing the Pro League outfit could also afford the North London side the opportunity to run the rule over a host of prodigious talents that may well have the quality to be future signings for the club.

With Anderlecht regularly supplying players to the Premier League and other top European leagues, here are three current stars that Spurs could snatch away from the Belgian side.

Dennis Praet

Despite still only being 21, creative midfielder Praet has been on the collective radar for some time and continues to be a player of real talent and potential.

Cut in the same mould as Christian Eriksen, Praet has all the attributes to be a Premier League player, with his versatility, vision and technique surely fitting in at White Hart Lane.

Youri Tielemans

Another prodigious talent that has emerged from the Anderlecht youth academy, Tielemans has been playing senior football for a couple of years but is still only 18.

With signs that the box-to-box is set to be a future Belgian international and a player at the highest level of the game, Spurs should be paying real attention to his performance tonight.

Stefano Okaka

The Italy international was signed by the Belgians as a replacement for Aleksandar Mitrovic and has started his time with the club in blistering fashion, scoring six league goals in his first ten outings.

A player that has proven himself in Serie A also, the sprightly forward could well be excellent competition for Harry Kane in Tottenham’s striker-shy squad.
