Why This 19-year Old Striker Could Hit The League By A Storm If Tottenham Manages To Sign Him

Moussa Dembele - Fulham

Next season is going to be a test of wits for the board and also Mauricio Pochettino as Spurs get ready for one of their toughest season ahead. Along with the Champions League next campaign, the quality of the league has increased manifolds and the 2016-17 season promises to be one of the toughest season yet. Spurs have to make sure that last year’s impressive season was not a one off performance and Pochettino’s boys are in it for the long run.

Many forwards are being linked to the club with each day passing by as this is the position which needs strengthening in this transfer window. From Christian Benteke, Breel Embolo, Michy Batshuayi and Vincent Janssen have been linked with a move to the side but nothing has been concrete until now about any striker. One other name that has come up with a move to Spurs is the 19 year old Fulham forward, Moussa Dembele (the other one).

Dembele was born near Paris and was with PSG for eight long years but had to leave for opportunities in the first team as the investment from Qatar in 2011, ended the chance for many youngsters like him. Him and Kingsley Coman were a part of the Parisians’ academy but left in 2012. Dembele chose the hard path and joined Fulham where he has obtained every chance to showcase his talent and test himself in England. Playing in the Championship hardens the player and makes him ready to play in the bigger leagues and Dembele is ready now for a move to a big club.

Dembele at six foot has all the attributes that are required in a modern striker. He is pacy, direct and has that velocity to bring fear into the minds of the defender. His finishing is world class as his exploits at Fulham suggest and had a terrific 2015-16 season scoring 17 goals in all competitions. He is build for the Premier League and is a strong guy for a 19 year old. Along with his pace, his calmness and assuredness on the field is a thing to admire. Fulham’s website describes Dembele with a ‘pace to burn’ and has rightly garnered attention from all over Europe. Bayern Munich, Arsenal and Man Utd are rumoured to be interested in the French youngster and Spurs need to act quick if they want to sign the talented striker.

Dembele also drifts out of games a lot and has gone many games without a goal in the past couple of seasons for Fulham. But he is just 19 and has a lot of time to improve on his weaknesses. Pochettino has developed a lot of youngsters at the lane and Dembele is just another opportunity for the Argentine to make a genuine world class player under him. Anthony Martial and Kelechi Iheanacho are prime examples of how young strikers have taken the league by storm, and Moussa Dembele can be Spurs’ answer to the rivals.
