Why This Argentine Will Convert Tottenham’s Attacking Line Up To Be One Of The Best In The League

Published

on

Spurs, Arsenal and Liverpool are the only three sides of the usual top six in the Premier League to have a manager settled to life at the club. Pep Guardiola, Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte are super managers but will take time to get used to a new club and understanding their players at the earliest. This gives an advantage to Spurs who will be pumped up after their best performance in the Premier League and will look to emulate that in the next campaign too. For that, Spurs need to do well in the transfer period to add more solidity and make the team challenging on all fronts.

Transfer period started on a good note with the signing of Victor Wanyama from Southampton which gives Tottenham’s midfield another dimension and makes it one of the best in the league with Dier and Dembele already proving their worth. One position which is a big question mark is the striker’s position which only has Harry Kane as the sole recognized scorer. A deal for Vincent Janssen seems imminent as Chelsea beat Spurs to the signing of Michy Batshuayi.

Another name that is being linked with the club is the Argentinian forward, Lucas Alario. Let’s get to know more about the forward and how it can be a good move for Pochettino’s men:

Alario began his career in the second tier of Argentina with Colon and helped them win promotion in 2014 to the top tier scoring in important games and finishing the season being the top scorer of the second division. He scored six goals in his first season and impressed the people at River Plate which prompted a move to the Giants in 2015 for a fee believed to be £2.25 million. He won the Copa Libertadores in his first campaign for River Plate and was one of the important players in their first continental win since 1996.

Alario is a right footed striker who likes to run behind defenses and can beat a defender with pace and with skills too. At times, the 23 year old does some outrageous tricks to get out of tight spaces and is touted to be the next big striker coming out of Argentina. He is good in the air too and his positioning play reminds how good of a poacher he is. His best attribute is his finishing as Alario had time and again proved his worth as a striker in big games for River Plate and is always at the right place at the right time.

Alario can fit well in the Spurs squad and can offer another dimension in their attack as both Kane and now reportedly Janssen are predominantly target men and typical no.9 while Alario can offer pace and width to the attack when needed. He also has an Italian passport which will ease the burden of a work permit if the club decides to secure his services. If signed, Spurs can have a potent lineup, which in a season or two can become one of the fearsome strike forces in the league.
