Tottenham Suffer Setback For This Ace: 3 Alternatives Spurs Should Pursue Including Newcastle Ace

According to Sport, Tottenham Hotspur target Andre Gomes is closing in on a return to Everton this summer permanently. The report claims that the Barcelona midfielder could soon complete his switch to Goodison Park for a fee of €30 million.

This could be a massive blow for Mauricio Pochettino, who will be looking to sign midfield reinforcements this summer. And in this article, we will discuss three alternatives the Argentine should pursue to fill the gap in the midfield department.

Adrien Rabiot

Available for free this summer, PSG midfielder Adrien Rabiot is still yet to decide on his future. The Frenchman has been linked with moves to Everton, Arsenal and Manchester United in the ongoing transfer window. Even a prolonged stay at Paris could be on the cards.

But, a move to Tottenham Hotspur could prove to be beneficial not only for the club but also for the player. The Lilywhites have enjoyed a massive surge in popularity after reaching the final of the UEFA Champions League, and the addition of a seasoned midfielder like Rabiot could help them further strengthen their midfield department that has struggled with injuries.

Rabiot will also be able to bring that winning mentality that Spurs dearly lack at the moment – making him a viable option for Pochettino.

Sean Longstaff

Tottenham should try and hijack Manchester United’s deal for Sean Longstaff this summer. The Red Devils are seemingly confident of sealing a €28 million deal for the Newcastle midfielder, and he could become an asset for the Manchester United in the coming years.

The same thing could apply for Tottenham, who have lacked the services of an industrious midfielder following the departure of Mousa Dembele earlier this year. Longstaff, in that regard, could be an ideal replacement for the Belgian.

The 21-year-old can provide extensive cover for the defence and is also very good when it comes to rotating possession. And given Pochettino’s proficient in nurturing young English talents, Longstaff could undoubtedly thrive in North London.

Lorenzo Pellegrini

Lorenzo Pellegrini has been linked with a move to both Tottenham and Arsenal this summer and a few days ago; it was reported that his agent was in London. The Roma midfielder could be an ideal signing for Spurs given his ability to act as a deep-lying playmaker. That means the Italian international can be utilised in the double-pivot alongside the more robust figure of Eric Dier.

Pellegrini is also capable of going forward and creating chances for his team in the final third. He is currently valued at around €35 million and should be a decent Gomes alternative for the Lilywhites.
