Spurs Web Opinion

Plea is a top player and his versatility will come in extremely handy. He is capable of playing off the wide areas as well as in the number ten role and so could play alongside Kane. He has also proven this season that he is more than capable of leading the line. He will be a cheaper version of Raul Jimenez in many respects. We should really be doing everything we can to get him if he becomes available.
