Why Tottenham Have To Be Shrewd In Their Transfers And Sign This Swiss International To Support Harry Kane

Spurs are in for a busy summer as the club returns to the European elite competition, Champions League after six long years. It was achieved by a cohesive and strong team spirit which consisted mainly of young English players which was pleasing to see in this modern world of football. Mauricio Pochettino has changed the mood around the club and given fans the hope that against the financial might of all the rivals, Spurs have a man at the helm who can challenge for the top spots.

Along with buying new faces, many existing ones like Nabir Bentaleb, Ryan Mason, Federico Fazio, Heung Min Son and Nacer Chadli are on the list of the manager to be offloaded this summer. Keeping the Champions League in mind, Spurs need to spend wisely rather than just splashing the cash. The most important area which requires urgent reinforcements is the striking area as only Harry Kane is the recognized striker who can score goals regularly.

But Kane can’t be trusted to say fit and in form during the course of the season and rightly the work has begun to bring some much needed strikers to share the workload with Harry Kane. Vincent Janssen of AZ Alkmaar has been rumoured for a move but the two names that seem to be in the front line are of Breel Embolo of FC Basel and Michy Batshuayi of Marseille. Both had a breakthrough season and has been instrumental in their side’s success this campaign. Janssen is of the Kane mould of striker, hence the race is between the two youngsters left to provide cover for the enigmatic top scorer of the Premier League.

While both are direct and pacy strikers having similar kind of physique and style of play, but the one difference between the two is that Batshuayi likes to stay around the box and is a fine finisher like his stat of scoring all his 17 goals from inside the box suggest. Embolo otherwise likes to drop deep and create chances for the team and unlike Batshuayi is good in the air. Embolo is good at linkup plays and Spurs have abundance of technically gifted players that he can create camaraderie with.

Embolo is younger than the Belgian Batshuayi and will atleast be £15-20 million cheaper than him. It does not make sense to spend over 30 million on just one player as with the new stadium coming up, cash will dry up and Spurs need to be shrewd in the transfer market rather than just spending on big names. Embolo is young and a more refined version of Batshuayi with more footballing sense and Spurs should cash in on one of the most exciting talent available in Europe right now.
