Amidst all the names being linked with a move to Spurs this morning, there are two that won’t be that familiar to supporters. The alleged January war chest has brought a flood of connections this morning so in a quite international week, it might just be worth looking at the two new boys.
With the success of Belgian players in the Premier League it’s easy to link more of their countrymen with a move to England. Dries Mertens is a 25 year old winger currently playing for PSV Eindhoven and considering his playing position, he has an impressive scoring record.
At PSV, Mertens has 25 goals in 40 league games and he has also earned 12 caps for his country, scoring just once.
Adam Maher is the second name mentioned and he is a Dutch international currently playing for AZ. A midfielder, Maher is just 19 and while he looks to be one for the future, he already has two full caps to his name.
It’s interesting to find new names linked with a move among the old connections but what could Mertens or Maher bring to White Hart Lane?
