Spurs Tie Up Pre-Contract Deals For 4 Playershttp://isportsweb.com/wp-content/uploads//2015/01/giovinco.jpeg
Juve Striker Sebastian Giovinco is one of four new faces at WHL
As football fans gear up for Pre-season, Spurs have been active in the transfer market, sealing pre-contract deals for four players in the run up to the action restarting. Despite not spending a penny so far, the club have brought in four, quality, first team players.
1. Zakaria Bakkali, PSV (Free)http://media.voetbalbelgie.be/fancy.73787_20140113_12582006152d3b959d8fe2.jpg
The 19 year old Belgian had been stalling on contract talks at PSV, and Pochettino had him on his radar - technically gifted, and with an eye for goal, the left winger has a massive future ahead of him. Although undoubtedly playing second fiddle to Ukranian Eugene Konoplyanka, Bakkali has the talent and work ethic to break into the first team with ease.
"I'm very pleased to have signed a deal here - Spurs are a great club, with a great reputation for developing youth. That Martin [Odegaard] chose here as his destination when every big club was chasing him, speaks volumes. I'm looking forward to getting my head down and pushing myself to the limit."
2. Jeronimo Rulli, Sociedad (Free)http://www.fm-base.co.uk/forum/attachments/football-manager-2014-manager-stories/416750d1384679865-blasphemy-seven-clubs-lock-horns-title-after-sir-alex-fergusons-retirement-1700543.jpg
The Argentine only spent 6 months in Spain after his move from Estudiantes, before Spurs picked him up on loan last January. Since then, Rulli has formed bonds at White Hart Lane, and when his contract expired this summer, there was never much doubt that he would make his move permanent. Growing in stature every day, he is almost ready to challenge Hugo Lloris for a first team spot.
"Last year, when I played here on loan, I got on very well with everybody and made friends very fast. I enjoy being at Spurs, and when we discussed a permanent move, I was very happy. The defenders here are a great bunch, and they make a goalkeeper's job so much easier. I'm ready to work hard to improve, and hopefully kickstart my career."
3. Sebastian Giovinco, Juventus (Free)http://www.tgcom24.mediaset.it/binary/lapresse/65.$plit/C_2_foto_178959_image.jpg
Until last week, Giovinco had every intention of staying at Juventus. The 28 year old helped the Turin side to the Italian cup last season, and was named in their Best Eleven. However, with rumours flying about the future of Roberto Soldado, Pochettino made his move, and tied up a pre-contract agreement for the Italian.
"At first, I was happy to stay at Juventus...but always I was being told "next week, next week" for contract talks. Spurs made an approach, and we agreed a deal which was good for both parties. I do not expect to be starting every game, but I think I bring something new to the club - an experience which was previously missing from their attack."
4. Roberto Pereyra, Unattached (Free)http://www.iamnaples.it/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/Roberto-Pereyra.jpg
A midfielder with a deadly range of positions, Pereyra moved to Udinese in 2011 for £1.7m, and played there for 3 seasons, before moving to Juventus on loan last year. Neither side though, saw fit to hand him a permanent contract, and now he has arrived in London with something to Prove.
"I've not had the best of luck in Italy, but with hard work and dedication, I can push myself here. Working alongside Lucas [Romero] is great, as we both understand each other, and he is learning every day. I know I will not be first choice here, but the standard of player and league is excellent, and i'll really be able to push myself."
