Tottenham could have a new stunning XI if billionaire Iranian-American magnate buys club

Should Iranian-American tycoon Jahm Najafi complete his takeover of Tottenham , the club would be able to spend large sums on the transfer market. According to reports, the billionaire is preparing a £3 billion acquisition and will soon approach Joe Lewis and Daniel Levy with his offer.

If his offer is accepted, Spurs could have a new look on the field next season thanks to the club’s increased financial resources. Here, SportsDias speculates on what the north Londoners’ starting XI could look like in their new era.

Goalkeeper: Diogo Costa

Hugo Lloris has served Tottenham admirably for many years, but now that he has been the team’s top goalkeeper for a decade, his prime years are likely behind him. 

Therefore, if the club wants to make progress, they must find a replacement for him. Costa could be an excellent choice for this role, as he has made impressive strides at Porto recently and is regarded as one of the most promising goalkeepers in the world. 

Additionally, he is skilled at playing with his feet, which could aid in building up the team’s attacks from the back. 

This would also provide Tottenham with the opportunity to outdo Manchester United, who have reportedly shown interest in him.

Defence: Cristian Romero, Alessandro Bastoni, Josko Gvardiol

Tottenham has encountered issues with their defense throughout the season, as it has become increasingly apparent that players like Eric Dier, Ben Davies, and Clement Lenglet do not possess the quality needed for the long-term.

Although there are concerns about his temperament, Romero has demonstrated his ability through previous performances and could improve when playing alongside more skilled defenders.

Bastoni and Gvardiol may be the ideal pairing. These young center-backs were both linked with a transfer to Tottenham last summer, and if the club decides to pursue their interest, they could establish the foundation of their team for many years to come.

Wing-backs: Pedro Porro, Destiny Udogie 

Tottenham has faced some issues with their wing-back positions this season, but there may be two players already on the team who could be given a chance next season. 

Porro recently joined the club from Sporting Lisbon in January, and although his debut against Leicester did not go well, he should be granted time to establish himself in the first team.

Udogie was signed by Spurs last summer, but he was immediately loaned back to Udinese, making it easy to forget about him.

 However, after another year of development in Serie A, the left-back could potentially earn a first-team spot. He has been an attacking threat this season and could provide a similar impact if he returns to Tottenham.

Midfield: Rodrigo Bentancur, Moises Caicedo

Bentancur has been one of Tottenham’s top performers this season when he has been available to play, so the recent news that he has suffered an ACL rupture and will miss the rest of the campaign is a significant setback.

 However, when he is fully recovered, he should have no trouble reclaiming his spot in the starting lineup due to his undeniable quality.

Another addition to the team could be Caicedo, potentially as a statement signing by Tottenham’s new owners.

 The midfielder has been strongly linked with Tottenham’s fierce rivals Arsenal, so if Najafi and the new owners can secure his signature, it would be a popular move among Spurs supporters.

Forwards: Dejan Kulusevski, Harry Kane, Heung-min Son

Tottenham’s current front three has been effective, and there is no pressing need to make changes even though Son has been struggling with his form. 

The most significant move that the new owners could make would be to secure a new contract with Kane. As England’s captain, Kane is still one of the top players in the world and would be incredibly challenging to replace if he were to leave the club.
