Tottenham plot cut-price £5.3m January swoop for in-demand midfielder

Published

on

Tottenham are said to be plotting a move for one of the rising stars from the Belgian league, Giorgi Chakvetadze. The 18-year-old plays for Gent but he started his career playing for Dinamo Tbilisi and joined the Belgian side in 2017.

The report from Belgian outlet HLN claims that a number of sides are after the signature of the youngster with Bournemouth, Shakhtar Donetsk and even Bayern Munich tracking the 18-year-old midfielder, along with Spurs. Any side looking to add the talented youngster into their team would have to part with £5.3million.

The report, however, claims that Gent do not want to lose their rising star and have no plans of letting him go anytime soon. The midfielder hasn’t played regularly for the first-team this season and has made only one substitute appearance in the Jupiler League.

A lot of work ahead for the youngster

While Chakvetadze did make it to a big side in the European leagues, making the step up to the next level should be his plan and it does seem unlikely that he would think about making a move again, even if some of the big clubs come calling.

Moving to Bayern or to Spurs will look great on his CV but he has a long way to go before he can think about playing regularly for us. Both clubs have a history of providing chances to quality youngsters but he would be down the pecking order should he move away from Gent now.

He hasn’t made it into the first-team of his current side either and the only time he should be thinking about moving away from the Belgian league is when he reaches a good level, so that he can continue his growth at Tottenham.

Mauricio Pochettino is known for his stellar work with young players but Chakvetadze might be a little too raw and maybe we should go for the player in the summer or even after a couple of years.

We do have some quality youngsters coming through and do need midfielders to step up but Chakvetadze does not seem like a Premier League material at the moment and even if he does sign for us, he would end up going out on loan to a League One or Championship side at the most.
