According to a report form the Daily Mail, Tottenham have entered the race to sign Bayer Leverkusen winger Julian Brandt this summer, and if Pochettino does in fact bring the German to north London, Spurs would arguably have one of the most exciting forward lines in world football.

The 23-year-old was in fine form in Germany this season, racking up an impressive nine goals and 17 assists in 42 appearances in all competitions for Leverkusen.

That kind of attacking output would surely help elevate Tottenham to another level, and he would also help bring out the best in the likes of Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son what with his superb delivery.

 

Brandt possesses pace in abundance, has exceptional technical ability and plays with a certain kind of directness that would make him ideally suited to Pochettino's high octane setup at Spurs.

The German, who currently earns £40,000 per week according to Capology, has a £21.5 million release clause inserted into his current contract with Leverkusen, according to the Daily Mail, and in today's day and age, that would represent excellent value for money for Tottenham.

The Germany international would provide real competition in the wide attacking department at Spurs, and his experience of playing at the very highest level for such a prolonged period of time could prove to be invaluable to Pochettino's side.

With Harry Kane, Heung-Min Son, Lucas Moura and Dele Alli, Tottenham already have one of the most deadly attacking forces in European football, and the addition of Brandt really would be the icing on the cake for the north London outfit.
