Tottenham should try and snap up Yacine Brahimi for bargain fee in January

The Porto ace would be a useful addition to the Tottenham Hotspur squad.

Mauricio Pochettino manager

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino failed to sign a single player during the summer transfer window, and it is clear to see that he needs to rectify that over the course of the next two transfer windows.

The problem for the Argentine is that it is doubtful that Spurs have sufficient funds to spend, due to their expensive move to their new stadium, and he might just have to be thrifty in his player recruitment.

With this in mind, Tottenham should consider a move for Porto winger Yacine Brahimi, who could be available for a cut-price fee in January.

 

The Algeria international's contract with the Portuguese club is due to expire in the summer, so Spurs could surely tempt them into selling for a bargain fee next month.

The 28-year-old is a real talent, and possesses exceptional technical ability. He is also incredibly quick, and would provide Pochettino with an entirely different option in the final third.

Tottenham rely too heavily on Christian Eriksen from a creative perspective, and Brahimi would help lift the burden off the Dane's shoulders.

At 28, Brahimi would not fit Spurs' current recruitment policy, but the north London outfit should make an exception for the Algerian.

And he could turn out to be a wonderful signing for Tottenham.
