3 Reasons Why Signing This Belgian Will Be A Disaster For Tottenham

Published

on

One of the more surprising transfer rumours that came out during the winter transfer window was Tottenham trying to move for Laurent Depoitre from Belgium. The 27-year-old was heavily linked with a move to the London side but it didn’t really make a lot of sense.

Sure Depoitre was a different outlet when compared to Harry Kane but he was an unknown quantity in the world of football, he could have turned out to be a dud, but also could have turned out to be a star that Tottenham would not have had to pay a lot for.

Tottenham are flying high right now and with them chasing for the title, we provide three reasons why they do not need to sign Laurent Depoitre.

An unknown quantity

Not many knew about the Gent striker before he was linked with Spurs and he doesn’t really have the best of records with the club when it comes to scoring as well. Tottenham need someone who can bang in the goals either playing with Kane or when he is out all alone.

Depoitre has scored 25 times in the Belgian Pro League in the last two years for Gent and certainly moving to the Premier League would not be easy for him. Probably a good thing that Tottenham did not sign him.

Spurs have a great team at the moment

Tottenham are playing some of the best football that they have played in years and why would they want to sign someone who can change the way the things are going on? Spurs also have some great options in Son and N’jie, when he does come back from injury.

Sure Harry Kane would be playing more games now since they don’t have someone to replace him but how many games would Kane be left out of? He is the number one choice for Spurs and he is the go to guy when it comes to goals. Depoitre would probably spend more time out of the team than with it based on how Spurs have done so far this season.

Isn’t the youngest player out there

Tottenham believe in the youth system, well at least Mauricio Pochettino does and that has allowed players such as Ryan Mason, Dele Alli, Tom Carroll, Eric Dier, just to name a few. Tottenham probably have a few players who can make the step up to the first team as well.

Alex Pritchard was sent out on loan to West Brom and well bringing in Depoitre would mean a 27-year-old joining the club and to be frank this doesn’t really make sense from any point of view. Tottenham are incredible at the moment, they shouldn’t mess around with it and thank the stars Mauricio Pochettino kept the team as it has been in the winter window.
