TOTTENHAM boss Mauricio Pochettino is ready to launch a double January transfer swoop for Ross Barkley and Luke Shaw to revive his side’s bid for honours.

Pochettino has seen his Tottenham side slip outside of the top four and is ready to bring in reinforcements when the transfer window opens next week.

He is ready to battle Chelsea for England midfielder Barkley, who is returning to fitness after having surgery on a ruptured hamstring.

Barkley, out of contract in the summer, played in a behind-closed-doors game at Everton’s Finch Farm training ground early last week.

And the 24-year-old, who appears on the wanted list of Arsenal and West Ham as well as the Blues, will be ready for first-team action in time for the transfer window.
