Tottenham have recently been careful with who they’ve brought in during the transfer season. The club recently disposed of players involved in dressing room disturbances in recent transfer windows by dumping Adebayor and Kaboul, as Pochettino looks to build a collective team spirit within his squad.

Pochetinno is big on bringing players who are dynamic in their play styles and in shape. The Italian has made appearances for Napoli as an attacking midfielder and a forward, playing in the middle or on either side. Lorenzo Insigne could potentially fill the backup striker position behind Harry Kane, as well as pair up with like-minded attacking midfielder, Christian Eriksen.

Rumors circulating around say that the Serie A club have placed an £18 million price tag on the Italian superstar.

Tottenham could very well be in the running after they have firmly placed themselves in the title run this season. If Spurs end higher on the table than the Arsenal, Spurs could very likely be the Premier League favorites to sign in Insigne.
