Why Tottenham Should Avoid The Temptaion To Sign This French International

Published

on

Harry Kane might have won the Golden Boot in the Premier League this season but his 25 goals weren’t enough for the side to win the title. Tottenham did capitulate towards the end of the season as they lost out to Arsenal in the race for second place.

One of the issues that Tottenham faced was the lack of another striker who could match the quality of Harry Kane in the team or even play alongside him. Spurs didn’t have the strike force to finish games off and that did cost them the title.

One player who has been linked with a move away from his club is Alexandre Lacazette; the 24-year-old Lyon striker has scored 21 goals this season for the Ligue 1 side and has been on the radar for many Premier League clubs.

Lacazette is probably the best striker in France as long as we do not look into the PSG side and he has been a regular goal scorer for Lyon. The French attacker scored 31 goals last season for his team and scored 23 in all competitions this season as he led his side to second place after a difficult start to the campaign.

While he would be a great signing for any team in the world, he might not be the perfect option for Tottenham. Firstly, Tottenham play with only one striker and Lacazette, for all his ability isn’t the wide man that Spurs could use on a regular basis.

The French striker is known to play as the main target man but that is the position taken up by Harry Kane. The English star also is best used when played down the middle and who would want to mess around with the Kane-Alli partnership which brought out so many great goals for the team?

The other issue with Lacazette and Kane is that they are pretty similar players and having two similar players in the same team and in the same position will lead to more problems than solutions. What Spurs need is a striker who can play off the main target man and Lacazette could do the job but he would not be as effective as some of the other strikers in the world.

The French star was expected to leave the club last season after his record breaking campaign but stuck around to play in the Champions League and to try his luck out in Ligue 1. With PSG winning everything there is to win in France and looking set to dominate it for years to come, Lacazette could be on his way to the Premier League or even La Liga but Tottenham does not seem to be the correct destination for the Lyon man.
