Should Tottenham consider signing Sevilla star Konoplyanka?

Tottenham Hotspur must strengthen their side even further if they want to complete on all fronts this season.

Tottenham Hotspur have ensured their business during this summer's transfer window has been both swift and efficiently executed.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino, however, stated earlier this week that the club were still very active in their search for more players (The London Evening Standard), and with such a strong squad already it would take an exceptional talent to improve the side even further.

The one thing this Tottenham side need is a marquee name type of exciting match-winner. Spurs have been far too reliant on Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane over the last two campaigns to produce the goods, and they paid the price for that in the latter stages of last season, with both of their star men looking shadows of the players they were earlier on that year.

The North London club should consider a move for Sevilla star and Ukraine international Yevhen Konoplyanka. The 26-year-old winger is one of the most explosively direct players in the game and would provide Pochettino with a unique option in the wide areas.

Even with the imminent deal the club have agreed for Georges-Kevin Nkoudou, they need more firepower, and a different type of player to the ones already present among their squad.

Konoplyanka is renowned for cutting inside from the left on to his favoured right foot and is partial to shooting from distance. Eriksen has been Tottenham's only real goal threat from midfield in previous season's, although Dele Alli's surprise emergence last term did give them an added boost in that department.

The Lilywhites still need more though, especially in wide areas, and the pacey Ukrainian could be the ideal signing.

It was reported by The Daily Mail that Spurs were interested in the former Dnipro man in January of last year, but a move failed to materialise. Maybe now is the time when they should reconsider a bid for Konoplyanka.

With Tottenham's participation in the Champions league next year, they will need an added element of creative invention in attacking areas in order to break down some of the formidable fences they will face. The Ukrainian could be exactly the man for he job.
