Tottenham Hotspur backed to sign Bournemouth striker 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.
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)
