Pochettino could turn Manchester City's Patrick Roberts into a world-beater at Tottenham

Celtic's Patrick Roberts comes on as a substitute

The Manchester City winger would be a typical Pochettino signing, and he should seriously consider bringing him to Tottenham Hotspur this summer.

Mauricio Pochettino has worked wonders during his time in charge at Spurs, and deserves the utmost credit for the manner in which he has managed to turn Tottenham into perennial title contenders, in what has been such a short space of time.

The Argentine will be looking to improve his already strong squad this summer, however, as he looks to guide the Lilywhites to a sustained challenge for major honours on all fronts next season.

The north London outfit are notorious for playing hard-ball when it comes to paying transfer fees and player salaries, and with the building of their new stadium still in the development stage, Pochettino will once again have to make do with a far inferior budget to his closest competitors.

One particular area of the Spurs squad which is in need of attention is the attacking department, with Erik Lamela's future uncertain and Moussa Sissoko highly likely to leave.

It will be vital for Pochettino to bring in some more competition for Christian Eriksen, who has become too heavily relied upon from a creative standpoint.

With this in mind, Spurs should consider making an offer for Manchester City winger Patrick Roberts, who has been heavily linked wth a permanent switch to Celtic this summer.

The 20-year-old spent the entire season on loan at Parkhead last term, but has returned to the Etihad, although his future with Pep Guardiola's men remains uncertain.

With the attacking talent at the Spaniard's disposal, it is hard to picture a scenario where Roberts will be given an opportunity to showcase his potential on a regular enough basis.

It would be quite the contrary at Tottenham, however, with Pochettino's willingness to put his faith into youngsters.

The former Fulham academy graduate would slot into the Spurs setup perfectly, what with his impeccable technical ability, and his impressive work ethic.

Roberts is at his most effective when deployed in the right-wing position - an area where the Lilywhites desperately need to strengthen.

He is renowned for cutting inside onto his favoured left foot, and possesses an exceptional delivery along with a powerful shot.

He is still under contract with City until the summer of 2020, and whether they would sanction his exit to one of their direct rivals is debatable.

If Tottenham can find a way to get a deal for Roberts over the line, however, its could turn out to be a real coup, and given he chance to shine on a regular basis, Roberts could become one of the Premier League's most exciting players, under the guidance of the Argentine.
