Ante Rebic or Richarlison: Who should Tottenham sign?

Rebic / Richarlison

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly interested in signing the Croatian ace and the Watford star.

Mauricio Pochettino manager

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has worked wonders during his time in charge at White Hart Lane, but now really is the time for all of his hard work to start bearing fruit.

Spurs have not won a major trophy since their League Cup triumph in 2008, and the Argentine will be desperate to end that barren run this season.

Tottenham are thought to be keen on bolstering their attacking ranks this season, with German publication Sport 1 claiming that Poch want to bring £44 million-rated Ante Rebic to north London this summer and the Sun reporting that Watford's £40 million-rated Richarlison is also on his wish-list.

Every Love Island contestant if they were an England player - World Cup!

So which winger should the Lilywhites focus their attention on?

The 24-year-old has been magnificent for Croatia during this summer's World Cup in Russia, and his incredible work-rate, combined with his tenacious approach to the game would undoubtedly give Tottenham an entirely different option down the flanks.

His attacking output isn't that impressive, though, with just 31 goals and 11 assists to his name in 146 career appearances.

Those figures would surely improve, however, with the likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen surrounding him.

The 21-year-old is a raw talent, and he could very well flourish under the guidance of Pochettino.

He is direct in his play, and would offer Tottenham an added level of potency and pace in the final third.

The Brazilian's attacking output is equally average, however, with just 25 goals and 16 assists in 109.

He does have one season of Premier League action under his belt, however, and that might be enough to convince Spurs that he is a less risky option than Rebic.
