Premier League 2018-19: 3 signings that can turn Spurs into title contenders
Liverpool fans were dreaming of the Premier League title until Manchester City defeated them 2-1 and now, we have a real title race on our hands. City and Tottenham are the only ones in a realistic position to wrest the title from Liverpool.
City's slip-ups without the injured Fernandinho briefly allowed Tottenham to overtake them, but a defeat against Wolves showed that they still have to invest more to win the title.
Not many expected Spurs to perform the way they are performing now. After all, they hadn't signed a single player in the transfer window and most of the key players had a long run World Cup. But, once again, against all odds, they are still serious title contenders.
With Tottenham having their best start under Pochettino, it's vital that they invest immediately end their trophy drought and win the Premier League.
#3 Kai Havertz (Bayer Leverkusen)
Bayer Leverkusen has a long history of producing influential midfielders. Toni Kroos, Michael Ballack and Marco Reus are a handful of talents that established themselves in the Leverkusen shirt before being snapped by big clubs.
In recent times, the club has produced talents like Julian Brandt, Leon Bailey, Hakan Calhanoglu and Kai Havertz.
A technically gifted midfielder who can play with both feet and is great aerially, Havertz has a keen eye for a killer pass.
He recently broke Timo Werner's record as the youngest teenager to have 50 appearances in the Bundesliga. His market value has skyrocketed from €28 million in June to €65 million in January. This is higher than talents like Frenkie de Jong.
Havertz could prove to be a shrewd signing for Tottenham, though they will face stiff competition for his signature.
