Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino wants additions, and Leicester City's Wilfried Ndidi and Watford's Abdoulaye Doucoure have been recommended.

Jermaine Jenas has told BT Sport Score, which was broadcast on 12th May, that he wants Tottenham Hotspur to sign Wilfried Ndidi and Abdoulaye Doucoure this summer.

Tottenham are on the hunt for central midfielders, as Mauricio Pochettino looks to add depth to his squad.

And Jenas feels that Leicester City’s Ndidi and Watford’s Doucoure could step up and make an impact at a club like Tottenham.


He said: “I can see Leicester getting attacked at some point this year. Ndidi has had a good season. In line with Doucoure at Watford. These are the midfielders that Spurs, United could do with.”

Spurs sold Mousa Dembele in January and they have left themselves short in midfield.

The fact that Mauricio Pochettino has suffered with a lack of options in midfield makes Tottenham’s achievements this season even more remarkable.

Spurs have made it into the top four again, and also qualified for the Champions League final.

If Spurs were to sign either Ndidi or Doucoure over the summer, it would provide their defence with more protection for next season.

However, Spurs have been reluctant to spend big, and neither Ndidi or Doucoure would come cheaply.
