Tottenham make Haris Seferovic enquiry

According to Portuguese publication Record (h/t The Sun), Tottenham Hotspur have made an enquiry to Benfica over the possibility of signing Haris Seferovic on loan for the 2020/21 season.

The 28-year-old Switzerland striker started out at his youth career FC Sursee before spending time at FC Luzern and Grasshoppers, where he made his senior debut. In 2010, he joined Italian outfit Fiorentina but made only a handful of appearances for the first-team.

Instead, he spent his time at the club out on loan at Xamax, Lecce and Novara before joining Real Sociedad permanently in 2013. One year later, he was on the move again, signing for Eintracht Frankfurt. He spent three years at the German club, before signing for Benfica in 2017.

Till date, the 28-year-old has featured 126 times for the club, scoring 43 goals and setting up 16 more. Seferovic has represented the Switzerland national team on 65 occasions, scoring 19 goals in the process.

Tottenham are in the market for a new striker given the lack of a cover for star forward Harry Kane. While it has been a very good transfer window for the club up until this point, not signing a striker would be a major downer, considering the problems that Jose Mourinho faced when Kane was out injured last season.

And, as per the aforementioned report, Seferovic has now emerged as a potential target for Spurs. The North Londoners are considering signing the Switzerland international on loan for the current season, with an option to buy next summer.

Seferovic, however, might not be the best solution for Tottenham, considering that he has scored 10 goals or more in one season in a league competition just twice in his career. The 28-year-old netted just 5 goals in 30 league games last season for Benfica.

It goes without saying that signing a new striker is a must. However, settling for someone who hasn’t been a consistent goalscorer might not be the smartest move.
