Should Tottenham Splash The Cash On Tevez?

Published

on

Tottenham have been doing extremely well this season and have plenty to be happy about. Their summer signings have paid off and they’re playing like a group. Pochettino seems to have instilled his philosophy completely and utterly at this point of time there is a sheer abundance of talented young players that have the potential to develop into a lethal unit and all in all, everything seems in line. Spurs might have a shot at making a genuine top 4 challenge.

One area that causes worry though is that of the striker. The club’s finishing is failing them at the moment. There have been more than just a few occasions when the side has dropped points just due to lack of clinical finishing on their part. Against Everton, Swansea and very recently against Liverpool, Spurs could have easily won the games had they been finer in the final third. While this was in the absence of a firing Kane, the England international’s hat-trick last weekend might finally be the beginning of a good run of form for him. Spurs are still worryingly short in this department.

Pochettino had hoped the team could sign Saido Berahino but West Brom were successfully able to rebuff Tottenham’s efforts, even at the cost of their striker’s happiness at that point in time. The side does have Clinton N’Jie to back Kane up but the Frenchman has shown thus far that he is raw and his potential has to be tapped wisely and in time. He is not someone Spurs can depend on for a consistent supply of goals if Kane is ruled out for some reason. There is of course, the option of fielding summer signing Son Heung-min in that position but that will be putting extra pressure on the South Korean who is not a natural number 9.

It makes sense for the London team to look at reinforcements in the winter window and they might have a brilliant one in the form of former Manchester United, Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez. Tevez was a rumoured summer target for Liverpool and Atletico Madrid and these weren’t the only two teams mentioned in the reported suitors. The Argentinean is rumoured to be up on sale after a short spell at Boca Juniors and Tottenham Hotspur will prove to be the perfect destination for him.

Harry Redknapp was an admirer of the player and tried to sign him a few times during his reign at the London club.The English side is in need of a back-up striker and in Tevez they will find the perfect man for this role. In fact, with Tevez they will be able to cut down on their over-reliance on Harry Kane as the 31-year-old is still very much capable of leading the line alone, as he showed in his successful previous season at Juventus. Even now, he has scored 9 goals in 15 games for his childhood club which is a decent number for any striker, let alone for one supposedly in the twilight of his career.

Tevez could of course, stay at the Argenitean club given he was so keen to go back to it at the end of last season; however, if rumours are correct and the club might actually be willing to sell him to clear their wage bill. There is absolutely no reason the London club shouldn’t go all out to get him back to Europe and to England. He still has it in him to be the difference for Pochettino between finishing just outside the top 4 once again and getting a European berth next season.
