If Matip or Lovren do move on (I’m not aware of any substance to that, just that they are both good defenders for 3/4 choice and so we deduce they may want to move on to play more).
Anyway, either of the Spurs pair would be a good replacement at £25M. However, I suspect they would want guarantees about playing time, and we might not be willing to offer that.
Another possibility is that one or both follow Pochettino to Man Utd in the summer to give him the defensive platform to drag them higher in his first season. He knows their game, they know what he wants, and it could give him a fast start there.
