The Real Madrid ace would be a superb addition for Tottenham Hotspur.

Mauricio Pochettino manager

Tottenham seem to be on the verge of a truly exceptional summer.

Mauricio Pochettino has already signed Tanguy Ndombele and Jack Clarke, whilst the Daily Star are reporting that deals for Giovani Lo Celso (£45 million, The Sun) and Ryan Sessegnon (£20 million, The Telegraph) are in the pipeline.

Christian Eriksen, meanwhile, is being linked with a move to Atletico Madrid for around £60 million, according to Spanish media outlet AS.

And if the Dane does in fact leave Tottenham, the signings of Sessegnon and Lo Celso might not be enough.

The Fulham ace is a left-back / left-winger for a start, and whilst the Betis ace is an attacking midfielder, he is more comfortable when playing as part of a central midfield two or three, rather than in the number 10 position.


And if Spurs really want to make a splash in the Premier League this season, they should consider a move for Real Madrid ace James Rodriguez.

Technical ability

The Colombia international possesses exceptional technique. He is cool and composed when in possession and has wonderful vision. his record of 123 assists in 374 career club appearances is evidence of this.


Rodriguez can play anywhere along the front-line, as well as in more of a deeper central midfield role, and that will surely appeal to Tottenham boss Pochettino.

The fact that he's left-footed will also be a major boost, considering that Erik Lamela is the only naturally left-footed attack-minded player at the club.

Reasonably priced

He's available for just £37 million, according to the Sun, and in today's day and age, that would represent superb value for money for Spurs.

At 28, Rodriguez has many of his best years still ahead of him, and he would surely prove to be a superb asset for Pochettino's side.

He is also in possession of a magnificent footballing CV, having won seven league titles and two Champions Leagues during his career thus far.

And what an exceptional signing he would be for Tottenham.
