Tottenham Hotspur are interested in securing the signature of Deportivo La Coruna striker Pinchi next summer. According to recent reports in the English press, the North Londoners are among a whole host of clubs which includes Liverpool and Manchester United who are competing for the Spaniard’s services. It is being reported that Mauricio Pochettino’s side are in the running but the Reds are currently winning the race for his signature. The 22-year-old winger will be out of contract next summer and could switch clubs for a small compensation fee payable to his Spanish team.
Pinchi has been plying his trade for Deportivo’s second team and can boast incredible pace down the right flank. His talents have caught the eye of a number of Premier League scouts with a possible move to English football looming on the horizon. The North London outfit could be looking to bolster their attacking options ahead of the new campaign as they try to bridge the gap between themselves and the Manchester clubs in the coming years.
The additions of Pinchi will be a low-risk investment which will definitely add some squad depth to Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
Tottenham Hotspur are currently in 5th place in the Premier League standings, just a point behind fourth-placed Chelsea with just 11 league matches remaining this term. The Spurs are trying their best to finish in the top 4 so that they can ensure Champions League football for another season.
However, they are a massive 20 points behind the league leaders Manchester City and are in need dire need to bring in some reinforcements in the summer to bridge the gap between themselves and the Premier League’s ‘Top 4’ in the next few years.
The potential addition of a new striker might help them cope with competing in four different competitions. Pinchi has featured in 23 matches for the Deportivo La Coruna B team, finding the back of the net six times this term. However, he is still unproven at the top level and might take time to adapt his playing style to the physicality and high intensity of the Premier League. The acquisition of Pinchi could prove to be a shrewd signing for Mauricio Pochettino as the Argentinian boss looks to inject some quality into his squad ahead of the new campaign. It remains to be seen what lies ahead in the future of Pinchi and whether he ends up playing for Tottenham Hotspur next season.
