3. Gylfi Sigurdsson
What if I told you Spurs had an opportunity to bring in an attacking midfielder who’d scored nine goals and contributed 12 assists in the Premier League this season? Think that’d be of interest to Mauricio Pochettino? So do I.
That’s precisely why I won’t be surprised if Spurs look to bring Gylfi Sigurdsson back to the club this summer. He’s been an extremely bright light in a dark season at Swansea. If the Swans face the drop, Sigurdsson will become one of the summer’s most intriguing transfer targets.
The Icelandic star would be an X factor in the true sense of the word. He likely wouldn’t be an automatic starter for Spurs. However, his presence on the squad would do two massive things for the club.
First, it would push Christian Eriksen. We all know the Dane is supremely talented, but runs hot and cold as the season pushes on. Sigurdsson could give him a solid kick in the rear when necessary.
More importantly, he’d give Pochettino a devastating substitute off the bench. Just imagine bringing a player of Sigurdsson’s quality on for the last half hour of a tense Premier League encounter. He’d also be a huge help in Tottenham’s litany of cup competitions.
Tottenham would do well to correct an earlier mistake this summer. Pochettino would welcome Sigurdsson back to Spurs with open arms.
