Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with the South American duo.

Tottenham made a fine start to this summer's transfer window.

Mauricio Pochettino brought in Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon and Jack Clarke from Leeds United, before loaning the latter back to the Championship outfit for the season.

Things seems to have gone quiet for Spurs over the last few weeks, however.

The Daily Star reported last week that Tottenham were closing in on an £80 million double deal for Real Betis ace Giovani Lo Celso and Fulham starlet Ryan Sessegnon.


As things stand, however, the duo seem to be no nearer to joining Spurs.

And then on Friday, Tottenham were linked with a £54 million move for Ajax ace David Neres, according to Italian website Calcio Mercato.

Much will depend on whether Tottenham manage to keep Christian Erisken, but if they sign Lo Celso as well as Neres, whilst signing the Dane up to a new deal, Pochettino would arguably have one of the best attacking line-ups in the Premier League at his disposal.

Neres is direct in the way in which he plays, and at just 22, he has the potential to become one of the world's best players.

The Brazilian ace is a pacey right winger, and he would offer Spurs another option in the final third, whilst the Argentine is an attacking midfield play-maker, and the thought of him lining up alongside Eriksen, Ndombele and Harry Winks really would be an exciting one for the club's fans.

Tottenham seem to be on the verge of achieving something very special, and if they add Neres and Lo Celso to their ranks this summer, that might just be enough to take Pochettino's side to that elusive next level.
