Tottenham Hotspur needs to reinforce their strikers.
“Tottenham sent Harry Kane to Bayern Munich, but were unable to bring in a striker who could replace him. “Coach Enze Postecoglou used winger Son Heung-min as the lone striker,” he said.
He continued, “Son Heung-min performed well as a striker, scoring 8 goals in 13 league games. “But it is clear that Tottenham need a true striker to fill Kane’s role if they are to reach the next level under manager Postekoglou.”
Tottenham let go of their signature striker Kane this summer. Kane, a Tottenham youth product, has spent his professional career only at Tottenham, except for his loan spell. Kane has become a Tottenham legend and the world’s best striker. Kane is the second highest scorer in the Premier League (PL) with 213 goals, following Alan Shearer. He also scored 62 goals for England, surpassing Wayne Rooney to become the highest scorer for England.
Kane’s personal career was considerable. He won the PL scoring title three times, the PL assisting title once, the World Cup scoring title once, and the World Cup assisting title once. However, he was disappointed that there was no trophy. It’s not that he didn’t have a chance to win. In 2016-17, they finished second in the league, behind Chelsea. In the 2018-19 season, they reached the final of the UEFA Champions League (UCL), but bowed out to Liverpool. As for the England national team, they advanced to the finals of UEFA Euro 2020 but lost to Italy in a penalty shootout.
In that situation, Munich strongly wanted Kane. For a long time, Munich had a great striker named Robert Lewandowski in charge of the front line. However, last season, Lewandowski moved to Barcelona, leaving a huge void for Lewandowski. Munich was planning to fill Lewandowski’s void with Kane. Munich held long-term negotiations with Tottenham and eventually accepted Kane.
Tottenham had Richarlison as the lone player after Kane transferred. However, like last season, it was disappointing. They lacked the strength to hold on from the front and could not hold the ball properly. Moreover, he failed to take advantage of a decisive opportunity. Coach Postekoglou made a change by appointing Son Heung-min as a lone striker.
This was successful. Son Heung-min scored a hat trick against Burnley and continued to score goals thereafter. Thanks to Son Heung-min’s performance, Tottenham went undefeated in 10 league games and took the lead in the league. But the recent trend is not good. They lost to Chelsea, Wolverhampton, and Aston Villa, falling into a three-game losing streak.
Tottenham’s goal in the winter transfer market is to recruit a striker. Son Heung-min is doing well at the front line, but lone top is not his main position. Tottenham plans to strengthen by recruiting a proper striker. It is known that he is interested in Ivan Toni, Gift Orbán, etc. 스포츠토토사이트~
