Tottenham Hotspurs are slowly but surely getting into their stride in the Premier League this term and are winning consecutive matches. Their mainstay in attack, Harry Kane, is looking in tremendous form and has already scored six goals to show for his efforts.

However, Mauricio Pochettino is well aware of the fact that his side will have to perform much better in the midfield as well if they are to make a bid to win the Premier League this season. The Argentine mastermind is eyeing a number of players to be brought into the side to reshape the midfield, which can help them compete at the against the best in Europe.

One name, which is right on top of the target list for the Tottenham coach, is Portuguese midfielder, Andre Gomes. The 24-year-old is currently playing for Spanish giants Barcelona, where he started well in his first season in 2016. But he is currently facing some problems that have pushed him down the pecking order.

With the Blaugrana opting to keep him out of the starting lineup for most of his tenure in the La Liga so far, there is also a chance that the player might be sent out on loan during the next transfer window commencing in January.

The Portuguese midfielder is one of the most highly regarded players in a central role at the moment despite his average show in the colours of the Catalan side and there might not be any shortage of suitors who would want to bring him into the side for the rest of the season.

Reportedly, Spurs are one of the outfits who are very much interested in the player in January, be it on a permanent deal or on loan. The 24-year-old played a very important role in the Portugal national side in the 2016 Euro Cup tournament, helping them lift the trophy for the first time in their history, which attracted the eyes of a number of clubs including the English outfit.

However, now the situation is changed, the Premier League club might look to pursue this opportunity to sign the player. Pochettino is hopeful that if he can pair the Portuguese with enforcer Eric Dier with Gomes, it might give his side a lot of stability in the midfield. He is well aware of the abilities that the 24-year-old possesses and will hope that he will turn out to be a very good addition to his side.
