Mauricio Pochettino manager

Mauricio Pochettino has a lot of work to do at Tottenham this summer, if he is to guide his side to their first major trophy since 2008 next season.

One particular area of concern for the Argentine will be his left-back department, with Danny Rose's future in north London uncertain to say the very least.

Manchester United are leading the race to sign the Spurs ace, according to the Guardian, with Tottenham commanding a fee in excess of £50 million, and if he does leave this summer, they will obviously have to bring in another established left-back.

With this in mind, Poch should consider a move for AC Milan ace Ricardo Rodriguez, who could be allowed to leave the San Siro this summer for just €15 million (£13.1 million), according to respected Italian football expert Gianluca Di Marzio.

The 25-year-old joined Milan from Wolfsburg in the summer of 2017, and he has since gone on to enhance his reputation as one of the continent's finest left sided full-backs.

The Switzerland international is an attacking full-back in every sense, and he would offer Spurs so much going forward, as well as defensively of course.

He is incredibly experienced in playing at the very highest level for both club and country, and he could be a real asset for Tottenham.

Rodriguez is also a renowned set piece specialist, and the fact that he is left-footed would provide more balance to the Lilywhites from dead ball situations.

For the reported fee of just £13.1 million, Rodriguez would be a real steal, and if Poch manages to bing him to Tottenham, it could turn out to be a signing of real significance for the club.
