Former Manchester United Star Urges £15m Striker Linked With Tottenham To Stay Put

Joshua King

Tottenham have been heavily linked with a lot of strikers in the recent past as summer arrival Vincent Janssen failed to live up to the expectations. Nevertheless, the board and the fans alike believe that the striker only needs more time to exhibit his talent and fulfil his potential.

However, the media thinks otherwise and have linked Tottenham with a host of strikers, with one of them being Bournemouth sensation Joshua King. According to Daily Mail, Tottenham are weighing up a move for the 25-year old striker.

Joshua King has been in tremendous form since the turn of the year and has scored 15 goals in the league so far. The 25-year old from Norway is being valued at around £15million.

Now, former Manchester United star and King’s compatriot Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has urged the Bournemouth hotshot to ignore the rumours and focus on playing for Bournemouth.

He advised King to stay put, and spoke to Romsdals Budstikke,

“Right now is a good time for him to be firm in Bournemouth. Where he plays at his all, and get his head down and perform at peak level every game. It is something else to be one of four class strikers that rotates at the positions in a bigger club.”

Solskjaer has his own experience of snubbing Tottenham Hotspur. Back in 1998, he turned down a move despite a fee being agreed for him to switch from Manchester United. One year later he scored the winning goal in the Champions League final.

Solskjaer knows a thing or two about playing for a big club and if he feels that Joshua King has to wait before making the big switch, then he is probably right. However, King is now 25-years old and this might just about be the right time to step onto the next level.

It is possible that Solsjkaer thinks King needs to have one more good season before thinking about a move to the big club. But in all fairness, Josh King knows the English League now and he should probably trust Mauricio Pochettino and make the move to Tottenham.

Spurs are a club on their way forward and a great project is in place. A player as young as Joshua King should probably consider this as a good opportunity to cement his place in the history of a club like Tottenham Hotspur.
