Players such as Paulinho and Etienne Capoue to name a few, have failed to impress at White Hart Lane, meaning Spur’s search for an outstanding central midfielder continues.
In order to resolve this problem, a search into La Liga could be the answer, and although they have failed in their quest to sign Mario Suarez, there are plenty of midfielders Spurs should be looking at who wouldn’t cost the earth. Here are three examples:
Ignacio Camacho – Málaga
Camacho has become one of La Liga’s most promising midfielders recently. At 25 years of age, he is around the peak years of his career. He is strong, has a good range of passing, and a decent strike and would make a great signing for Tottenham.
Rubén Pardo – Real Sociedad
La Liga expert Guillem Balague is a big fan of La Real starlet Ruben Pardo so he must be good.
The midfielder is superb technically for his age, and being only 22 years old, he will have a wonderful future at any club he plays for. He still must develop physically in order to cope with the challenge of Premier League football, however his appreciation of the game means that he is one of Spain’s most promising young players.
Grzegorz Krychowiak – Sevilla
After Ivan Rakitic’s departure from Sevilla, you could forgive any Sevilla fan for feeling a little distraught. However, Sevilla pride themselves in how they scout talent, and found a gem of a signing in Krychowiak.
The midfielder was bought for little money from Ligue 1 and has adapted well to La Liga. He scored in the Europa League Final last year, in his home country of Poland, and has proved to be a wonderfully versatile midfielder for Sevilla since he joined them. He is the type of player Spurs should be looking for.
