Possible triple transfer would give Tottenham an amazing best XI

Tottenham Hotspur could potentially have a superb best XI next season.

Tottenham Hotspur only secured Champions League qualification by the skin of their teeth last season.

Despite reaching the final of the competition, Mauricio Pochettino's side struggled in a big way during the Premier League and only finished fourth, one point ahead of North London rivals Arsenal.

But if the Tottenham boss follows the addition of Tanguy Ndombele with the signing of two other potential targets then the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City will no doubt sit up and take note.

Spurs are also heavily linked with Real Betis midfielder Giovani Lo Celso, while The Telegraph has reported that Pochettino has enquired about signing Youcef Atal of Nice, a right-back.

 

That position was problematic for the Lilywhites boss last term. Serge Aurier had a stop-start season due to injury, while Kieran Trippier often struggled to replicate his World Cup form from a year ago.

Here's how all three could line up:

Of course, that lineup isn't set in stone; not strictly because Tottenham haven't signed Lo Celso or Atal yet, but because there's still lots of time for a twist involving Toby Alderweireld.

Things have been unusually quiet on the Belgian's future so far, but if a bid of around £25 million is lodged then the North Londoners will have no choice but to sell up due to a clause in his contract.

But if he stays, and Lo Celso and Atal follow Ndombele to the club, then it wouldn't be a surprise if Pochettino's side are challenging for a Premier League title rather than a top-four finish next term.
