Calcio Insider believe that one big big name Pochettino’s new project shortlist is that of Bundesliga ace Christian Pulisic. This was previously mooted by Mirror Sport.
Pulisic is only 19, however he has been linked with moves to the Premier League before today.
Liverpool were thought to be keen on the USA born boy, but the price last summer of £25million was perhaps felt to be a little strong for Jurgen Klopp who had more pressing squad area to attend to. An exploratory bid was tabled but nothing more transpired.
This summer it is highly likely that Christian would cost closer to £40million.
The Borrusia Dortmund star is viewed as a versatile winger, and with his contract due to expire in 2019, this could be the right time for Tottenham to step in.
With a midfield that all too frequently bores itself into submission – with endless bumbling about from the likes of Son and Lamela – the introduction of a thoroughbred player such as Christian who is match fit and already in receipt of rave notices could be just the ticket.
