Tottenham Hotspur Eyeing Up A Summer Move For AC Milan Star: Should They Go For Him?

Tottenham Hotspur have been recently linked with AC Milan’s Spanish winger, Suso. The 24-year-old agreed a new contract with the Serie A side 6 months back and has a release clause of €50m. Spurs could activate that clause and sign the trickster ahead of the 2018/19 campaign but is it the right move for them?

We are all aware of the moves Mauricio Pochettino has to make in order to turn his team into Championship material. The Argentine has already created a strong base of world-class talents and has reinvented the team’s capabilities, both in England and in the European competitions.

Tottenham currently sit in the top four of the Premier League and are almost guaranteed a Champions League spot for the next campaign. They had a strong showing in the continental stage by overcoming Real Madrid to the top of the group stage, despite lacking in overall experience. Just one slip-up in the 2nd Leg of the Round of 16 stage, saw Juventus run away with the tie and progress to the next round.

Pochettino still has a strong chance of winning silverware through the FA Cup competition, having progressed to the Semi-Final stage and set to clash against Manchester United on the 21st of March. Nevertheless, the progress from being just a feeble European qualification spot contender to a full title challenger has been meteoric.

Pochettino will want to build on that success and start matching the likes of the two Manchester clubs. The only way to do that is to take note of both Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho’s tactics and strengthen the squad as much as possible. Tottenham are stacked thin compared to the rest and have suffered earlier in the season because of that.

Suso could be a wonderful addition in terms of attacking options to any other team in the Premier League but not with Tottenham. The Spaniard has wonderful footwork when on the ball and can spread the floor. He has decent passing range and a scoring ability but nothing extraordinary.

The Spurs already have that in Erik Lamela and have just added an even faster and better built Lucas Moura in the January transfer window. Heung-min Son, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen are almost untouchable in the first team squad with Moussa Sissoko also present as a versatile option.

It would not benefit either the player or the clubs if this transfer ended up falling through. Suso is at a stage of his career where he does not need to be on the benches and Tottenham will be wasting a significant amount of their wage bills on a rotational option.
