It is possible to look at Premier League giants Tottenham in two different ways when it comes to their transfer policy. Either you can be impressed by the work and achievements of Mauricio Pochettino with limited financial resources compared to the top clubs around him, or you can conclude that until Spurs are willing to cough up a bit more cash to compete for the best players, they are unlikely to actually win anything.

Regardless of which viewpoint you may want to take, it is always interesting to see whether the hidden gems and bargain players that the North London club do buy actually end up succeeding.

One man, whose name is on Tottenham’s shopping list, is poised to do very well should he make the move to Spurs, mainly due to his phenomenal Premier League form this season. Watford’s Abdoulaye Doucoure is set for a summer move, according to the Watford Observer, after Pochettino watched him personally at Stamford Bridge on Monday night.

The midfielder has an impressive seven goals and two assists during this campaign, and has become a crucial part of a Watford side that has been scoring goals for fun. It will be interesting to see whether the Frenchman can make an effective step up to a bigger club if he does indeed move.
