Tottenham plot double swoop for Jota and Grealish


Tottenham Hotspur are plotting a double swoop for Diogo Jota and Jack Grealish according to the Sunday Express.

The report claims Daniel Levy is ready to make funds available at the season’s end following the completion of the new White Hart Lane.

Spurs will be aiming to make a statement as they begin a new phase at the 62,000-capacity stadium.

The north London club failed to make any additions to their squad in the last two windows.

Their last signing was Lucas Moura from Paris Saint-Germain when he joined in a £23million deal in January 2018.

If this latest report is anything to go by, then there could be a massive influx of players to the club in the coming months.

The report says that top of the list is Jota and Grealish from Wolverhampton Wanderers and Aston Villa respectively.

Jota is said to be being targeted as back-up for Harry Kane. Jota is capable of playing as a striker, but also as a wide forward meaning he could play in tandem with Kane.

Fernando Llorente clearly fell short of expectations during the Englishman’s injury absence and Mauricio Pochettino will be aiming to avoid a repeat of this attacking struggle in the future.

Jota has been pivotal for Wolves this season, forming a brilliant partnership with Raul Jimenez.

The 22-year-old, who joined from Atletico Madrid, has notched seven goals in his last 14 games including a hat-trick against Leicester City.

His impressive dribbling ability and passing range enable him to be a major threat when allowed to roam free with the ball.

And in their search for attacking reinforcements, Spurs will reportedly return for Grealish after missing out on the midfielder last summer.

Now 23, the playmaker has matured, and is shouldering more responsibilities without being overwhelmed.

The Englishman could be the potential successor to Christian Eriksen should the Dane depart for Real Madrid.

In 25 Championship games so far this season, Grealish has racked up nine goal contributions (4 goals, 5 assists).
