Tottenham Hotspur backed to sign Bournemouth striker Joshua King

According to Football Insider (h/t Express), former Tottenham Hotspur star Paul Robinson has backed the club to sign Bournemouth ace Joshua King.

The Cherries ace was a part of United’s reserves that played under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. He was unable to make the step up to the first-team and made just two appearances in his five seasons with the club.

Since signing for Bournemouth in 2015, King has gone on to establish himself as a reliable striker under Eddie Howe. He has scored 48 goals in 163 appearances for the Cherries.

Joshua King could prove to be a shrewd signing by Tottenham Hotspur

Spurs are in need of a backup for Harry Kane. Robinson believes King would be an excellent addition to the side. Having played together at Blackburn Rovers, the former Spurs ace still has a first-hand idea of the forward’s strengths.

“I played with Josh King at Blackburn and he has developed hugely as a player”

A promising player with pace in his arsenal, he is a much better end product now. Robinson believes securing the player is necessary given Kane’s inability to finish a full season. He has also backed King to get game time when the England captain is fit.

“If Harry Kane is fit, he plays, but he has not played a full season in years.”

Ironically, King too has had an injury-plagued campaign and has been limited to making 20 appearances all season in which has scored four goals and 2 assists. (h/t Transfermarkt)

Capable of playing across the frontline, his flexibility will surely give Mourinho more options. A player with vast experience of English football, King could very well prove to be a shrewd signing.

The 28-year-old has won 46 caps for Norway and has scored 17 goals. (h/t Transfermarkt)
