There could be some positive news regarding Tottenham Hotspur’s search to find a new left-back after some positive news regarding a target for the club. Since Mauricio Pochettino was appointed Spurs head coach various Southampton players have been linked with a move to White Hart Lane and other Premier League clubs. Luke Shaw has been linked with several Premier League teams after a wonderful breakthrough 2013/14 campaign. The England international was so impressive, he earned himself a spot in England’s World Cup squad, though didn’t play a part in Saturday’s 2-1 defeat to Italy. United and Chelsea losing interest Manchester United and Chelsea have both registered interest in the 18-year-old as well as Spurs with the Manchester club even going as far as bidding for Shaw. The Daily Express believe the Red Devils recently bid £27 million for the left back but the bid was rejected and they now appear to be looking elsewhere – suggesting their pursuit of Shaw has failed. Meanwhile Chelsea have been linked with a move for another left-back because they feel they can get a cheaper option over Shaw. Even though those two teams looking elsewhere may suggest Shaw will stay at Southampton it could open the door perfectly for Pochettino to bring the youngster to White Hart Lane. The respect and admiration Shaw has for the new Spurs head coach is obvious and he has credited Pochettino with helping him become the player he is. Is he worth the money? A chance to rejoin his old manager and move to a club challenging for the Champions League as well as silverware could tempt the England ace should Tottenham make a move. United’s £27 million bid was rejected so Southampton are likely to be holding out for around £30 million, a huge outlay for a teenager and after spending a similar fee on Erik Lamela, Spurs fans will obviously be cautious. However, is the talent of Shaw worth paying such an excess fee? Pochettino knows the defender and would most likely get him to replicate his Southampton form. If he could do that it would solve our left back problem and maybe we would have another potential world class operator on our books. The news regarding Shaw continues to become more positive but the fee is an awful lot of money. If we could get the 18-year-old is it worth splashing the cash?
