Tottenham Hotspur Roundup: Latest on Leon Bailey scout, Kyle Walker-Peters admission and Potential Pochettino's raid

Tottenham borrow £175m to ease coronavirus impact

Leon Bailey Scout

Tottenham are expected to scout the Bayer Leverkusen winger Leon Bailey later today.

The German club are in action in the Europa League tonight and Tottenham will use that opportunity to run the rule over the 23-year-old winger.

Leon Bailey is one of the most talented young attackers in world football right now and Jose Mourinho will do well to secure his services.

Tottenham have impressive attackers at their disposal but they could use Leon Bailey’s pace and flair.

Furthermore, Gareth Bale is on loan at Tottenham and the London club will need to replace him next summer. Leon Bailey could be the ideal alternative to the Welsh international.

The likes of Arsenal and Wolverhampton Wanderers are keen on the Jamaican as well and it will be interesting to see if Tottenham can fend off the competition and sign the 23-year-old.

Potential Mauricio Pochettino’s raid

Mauricio Pochettino has been linked with the Real Madrid job recently.

The Spanish champions are struggling under Zinedine Zidane and it will be interesting to see if they decide to appoint the Argentine as his replacement this season.

According to reports, Mauricio Pochettino could look to raid Tottenham if he is appointed as the manager of Real Madrid.

Apparently, Pochettino is interested in signing Dele Alli and Harry Kane.

Alli has fallen out of favour with Jose Mourinho and he is no longer a key starter at Tottenham. A move away from the London club would be ideal for the England international.

As for Harry Kane, he’s one of the best players at the club and Tottenham will be desperate to hold on to him.

It will be interesting to see if Pochettino can lure the attacking duo away from Tottenham in the near future.

Kyle Walker-Peters admission

Former Tottenham defender Kyle Walker-Peters has claimed that leaving the London club was a good decision for him.

The young defender needed to play regularly and he has been given that opportunity at Southampton.

Kyle Walker-Peters is developing with regular football at Southampton and that would not have been the case if he had stayed at Tottenham in the summer.

“Yeah definitely,” he said, as reported by Hampshire Live when asked about settling in at Southampton after his move.

“I think you can see with how well we are doing as a team, we are all really enjoying it and because it has gone so well, I feel really happy with the decision I have made.”
