Although the player falls well within th MoPo/ Mitchell style I am unsure whether this rumour has any truth to it.
As it stands Tottenham have Bentaleb, Mason, Carroll, Dembele and Eriksen. An approach for McCarthy would not necessarily ring true because of the glut of players in the same position. Dembele may have been reported to be of interest to other clubs, but that would still leave 4 (not including Stambouli and Capoue!).
Although McCarthy would be a great signing I just cannot see Levy sanctioning a deal for another central midfielder when there are at least another 2 that must leave first.
Logically if Stambouli and Capoue are sold this deal could happen, but I would imagine that Levy will expect to buy McCarthy with the funds raised from the sale of the above 2.
Feel free to email me and I will publish the best views.
