Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is looking sign one of Swansea’ Alfie Mawson and Middlesbrough’s Ben Gibson.
The Argentinian is seeking to add depth to his team ahead of the new season as they hope to get past the group stage of the Champions League.
However, Spurs have to sell to balance the books, and Kevin Wimmer looks like the player that would be moved on.
The Austrian has failed to nail a starting spot in the north London team due to the impressive performances of Belgian duo of Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vetonghen.
Southampton and other teams are interested in the defender who joined from Cologne only two years back, but Tottenham wants £20 million for his signature. This amount has scared many of his suitors away.
Mauricio Pochettino was gutted to miss out on signing Michael Keane as the defender joined Everton this week.
Gibson performed very well individually last season despite Middlesbrough’s overall dismal campaign, and Pochettino believes the 24-year-old would thrive under his tutelage.
Mawson has been consistently good for Swansea over the past few seasons.
