According to The Sun, Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino is keen to bring in another midfielder this summer, even after signing Victor Wanyama from Southampton.

Whilst missing out on the Premier League title was a disappointment for Spurs and Pochettino, but a return to the Champions League means that exciting times are ahead for Tottenham.

Pochettino has made just one summer signing so far, as midfielder Victor Wanyama has joined the club from Southampton - and more arrivals are expected this summer.

A new striker is certainly needed to offer some competition for Harry Kane, but The Sun report that Pochettino still wants to snap up a new midfielder, even after reuniting with his former Saints star Wanyama.

Eric Dier and Mousa Dembele formed one of the Premier League's top midfield partnerships last season, and Wanyama offers competition as another powerful player to protect the back four.

However, it's believed that Pochettino still wants one more midfielder, and a deep-lying playmaker could make sense as the Spurs boss seeks some balance in the middle of the park.

The claims will again cast even more doubt over the future of midfield trio Ryan Mason, Nabil Bentaleb and Tom Carroll, who have all been linked with summer moves away from White Hart Lane.

Of the three, Carroll seems most likely to stay right now, and if Spurs receive good offers for Mason or Bentaleb, they could look to reinvest the cash in another midfielder, with Calcio Mercato recently claiming that Fiorentina's Croatian international Milan Badelj is a target for Pochettino.
