According to the Daily Star, Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino is pushing to sign both Paulo Dybala and Youcef Atal in January.

Spurs have been in dire form so far this season, and their recent results have been particularly concerning.

Tottenham were beaten 7-2 by Bayern Munich in midweek and then failed to bounce back from that defeat, after losing 3-0 to Brighton & Hove Albion at the weekend.


Serious questions are now being asked of Tottenham’s squad, which has been together a long time.

And Pochettino is pushing for changes to be made, as he wants to add to the quality at Hotspur Way.

The signings of Dybala and Atal would go a long way to solving the problems in Tottenham’s squad.

Dybala is an elite level attacker, who would provide Spurs with more goalscoring threat and creativity.

Atal, meanwhile, has impressed at Nice and would surely fill in a right-back position which has been troublesome for Pochettino all year.

It is said that departures could happen at Spurs too, with Victor Wanyama, Eric Dier and Serge Aurier all ‘at risk’ of being sold, after their poor starts to the campaign.
