Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino targets Anthony Martial and Wilfred Zaha

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 25 May 2018, 08:59

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino confirmed his loyalty to the club on Thursday after penning a new five-year contract.

Pochettino’s new contract is believed to be worth a whopping £8.5m a season, making him one of the best paid gaffers in England, while Spurs will hope that the deal has swatted away reported interest from Real Madrid and Chelsea.

Now the Argentine manager has reportedly targeted a couple of high-profile summer recruitments in Anthony Martial and Wilfred Zaha.

The Lilywhites are currently awaiting the big move into their brand new stadium, and in course are set to back their manager with a reported £100m kitty in this summer’s transfer window, as the club bids to challenge for both domestic and European honours next season.

Martial’s future is currently up in the air at Man Utd, and Pochettino would no doubt jump at the chance of snapping up the French forward, who was left devastated after he missed out on Didier Deschamps’ 2018 World Cup squad.

Whether Mourinho would sell a player to a direct rival is open to debate, however the clubs could well work out a deal which includes Spurs outcast Toby Alderweireld, with whom Man Utd have enquired about (BBC Sport).

The Daily Mail reports that Pochettino is once again targeting Zaha who enjoyed a cracking season with Crystal Palace. Boss Roy Hodgson will not want to lose his star man, but should a top club show interest, Zaha’s head could be turned.

Spurs are also being linked with Ajax centre-back Matthijs de Ligt and Fulham sensation Ryan Sessegnon. The latter is one game away from winning promotion to the Premier League with the Cottagers, but regardless of whether his side go up or stay put, the top-flight vultures will no doubt come circling around Craven Cottage this summer.
