Spurs opinion: Why Diogo Jota would be a smart signing for Tottenham
The 22-year-old winger joined Wolves from Atletico Madrid and has been in fine form recently. The Portuguese star even scored a hat-trick against Leicester City, and his manager expected more to come from him (h/t Birmingham Mail):
“I hope he can still do better! It is of course very difficult to score three goals in one game but I hope (he can do better)!”
Jota took some time to get used to the Premier League, but now has scored five goals and has three assists to his name from the last 10 games.
The report from the Express claims that it would be difficult to negotiate with Wolves over their star, however, Tottenham should be playing in European competition next season and Jota would be a smart signing for the club.
Versatile attacker that would provide competition
Jota has the capability of leading the attack or playing out wide. The Portuguese winger would provide Tottenham with a lot of options regarding his deployment, and would certainly add competition to the starting places in the team.
The 22-year-old has potential to improve and the second half of the season is proof that he is up to pace with the Premier League after a difficult start.
All the players in Nuno Espirito Santo’s Wolves work hard for the team, Jota is no exception. The Portuguese attacker might not have a great return in terms of goals and assists, however, he would be a quality squad player for Tottenham.
Spurs could do with more options in their attack, and Lucas Moura and Erik Lamela haven’t really set the team alight with their performances this season.
Tottenham are extremely reliant on Harry Kane and Dele Alli for goals, and Fernando Llorente has struggled mostly during his career at the club.
The Spaniard did better this season and it will be interesting to see how things go for us in the summer.
Tottenham haven’t signed a player in two transfer windows but we sold Mousa Dembele in January.

Jota would be a low-risk signing for Spurs given his acclimatisation to the Premier League compared to players outside England.
