After Spurs completed the signing of Souleymane Coulibaly, the rumour mills continued to link the club with young players from across Europe.
Whether this is a significant shift in our transfer policy or not, some of these names are definitely interesting and Alan Gatagov is one who could make an impact in the Premiership.
Gatagov is just 20 and plays in midfield for Lokomotiv Moscow where he has spent his entire career to date. While he has yet to break in to the full national side, he has played on 13 occasions for the under 21’s notching an impressive seven goals.
It’s thought that Harry had the Russian watched at Bournemouth and is currently considering a £5m bid to bring him to England. While it’s also rumoured that Chelsea could also be interested, other stories suggest this is merely linking one Russian with another and that Spurs are in pole position here.
While this would represent yet another punt, Alan Gatagov is a player that will have a bright future somewhere.
