It must be tempting during a slow news period to make obvious transfer links and in the case of Spurs, new coach Mauricio Pochettino is either after former players at Southampton or searching through his note book for fellow Argentinians.
Most stories come and go but the proposed move for former Inter Milan midfielder Esteban Cambiasso is gathering momentum. The 33 year old is without a club after being released this summer and the press are widely claiming that White Hart Lane is his intended destination.
In fact, the online version of Gazzetta dello Sport goes on to claim that a deal is imminent.
Undoubtedly, Cambiasso is a seriously talented and experienced defensive midfielder but is he an upgrade on Sandro? Alternatively, you can twist that question and ask if the Argentine is the best replacement, if our Brazilian is intent on leaving the club.
