"Paulinho is like a black Lampard, but also makes headed goals.. He is a phenomenon." -- Juan Roman Riquelme Whilst the ' will they, won't they ' situation surrounding Schneiderlin and Rodriguez trundle on, three of the main sports papers in Portugal are today reporting that Spurs next signing will actually come from Sporting Lisbon in the form of centre half, Eric Dier. New John Terry The papers also refer to Dier as being the ' new John Terry ' for for his brave and powerful playing style. Although I would prefer a new ' Ledley King ' to be honest. Dier is an English born player and is said to be an exciting prospect. Under 21 Dier has played five times for the England under 21's to date and looks accomplished on the ball and he would seem to fit in with Pochettino's ideal of nurturing young talent and he would also seem to come at a price tag that better fits with Tottenham's budget for the new season, unless sales are made. Big names Whilst wanting the biggest names is understandable, maybe this is the type of player we can expect to see Pochettino want on his squad. He already has exciting young talent with the likes of Lamela, so I think the focus will very much be on squad development this season. As ever, COME ON YOU SPURS!!!
