Spurs are looking to add another attacking midfielder to boost their squad ahead of their Champions League return.
They have already added Victor Wanyama to their midfield this summer, but according to the Telegraph Tottenham Hotsour are still in the market for an attacking midfielder and are considering a raid on relegated Newcastle United for Georginio Wijnaldum.
The Dutch star cost £14.5 million when he was signed on a five-year deal from PSV Eindhoven last summer, but he was accused of inconsistency by some Newcastle supporters.
The 25-year-old Netherlands international scored all 11 of his goals at St. James' Park, often proving anonymous away from home, and his brace against Spurs in the 5-1 thrashing on the final day of the season were his first goals since mid-January.
However, those inconsistencies do not appear to have deterred Mauricio Pochettino from considering him as a target, with the Telegraph reporting that Wijnaldum is amongst several names on the London club's shortlist of potential attacking midfield signings.
Spurs are looking to add both quality and quantity to their squad ahead of attempting to juggle a Premier League title challenge with a Champions League campaign next season.
Wijnaldum, who has won 30 caps for his country, would bring another strong option to play in a central or wide position at the front of midfield, and is perhaps the kind of player who would thrive on having a better class of teammate alongside him.
Newcastle and Rafael Benitez, however, have been very public with their resolve not to be pushed into selling any of their stars, and they would surely be likely to hold out in an attempt to at least recoup the fee they paid for the star 12 months ago.
