The Mirror have reported that Spurs have dropped out of the race to sign the Newcastle attacking midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum.
Rated at £25m by the Magpies, it’s claimed that Tottenham have decided the valuation is too high, leaving Liverpool as the favourites to sign the Dutchman.
It will be interesting to see whether the interest from the club has ended merely because of the valuation, or due to the probable signing of Georges-Kevin Nkoudou.
By bringing another wide player into the squad there is less need to play either Dele Alli or Christian Eriksen on one of the flanks, after a season in which both spent some time cutting in from wide positions. With the likes of Son Heung-Min also able to play in a central role if needed, does Mauricio Pochettino have enough options in this position now?
Much could depend on who departs, with the likes of Son, Nacer Chadli, Clinton Njie and Alex Pritchard all linked with moves away at various times this summer. Do you think Spurs still need another attacking midfielder to help to compete next season?
