Tottenham in £50m move to land two new recruits before World Cup

With a number of players in the squad linked with exits this summer, the club is reported to be working on two bids – a total of £50million – for replacements in the transfer market, as per a report by TeamTalk.

Mauricio Pochettino seemingly has a long list of targets and Luke Shaw, who has been left out the action at Manchester United by Jose Mourinho, is bound to be chased.

Spurs are expected to launch an offer of £25million which could be enough to persuade the Red Devils who are looking to sign Juventus star Alex Sandro as a replacement anyway.

Tottenham are also claimed to have submitted an offer of £25million to Boca Juniors for the services of Colombian midfielder Wilmar Barrios.

Securing the signing of the 24-year-old – who happens to be a close friend of Spurs defender Davinson Sanchez – before the World Cup begins will most likely be the plan of Pochettino in order to avoid any potential inflation in prices.
