Tottenham to move for Haris Seferovic after Arkadiusz Milik blow

According to a report from Football Insider (h/t Football.london), Tottenham Hotspur are set to launch a loan move to sign Haris Seferovic from Benfica, after suffering a blow in the pursuit of Napoli ace Arkadiusz Milik.

It is a well-known fact that Tottenham Hotspur are in the market for a new striker in order to provide cover for star forward Harry Kane. And Milik had emerged as one of the potential targets for the North Londoners. In fact, it was claimed that talks had been going on with the Polish international over the possibility of a summer switch.

Arkadiusz Milik has turned down Tottenham move

However, as per the aforementioned report, Milik has turned down the chance to join Tottenham as he is concerned over the amount of playing time that might come his way, with Kane being the first-choice striker. This has resulted in Spurs now lining up a loan bid for Switzerland international Seferovic from Benfica.

Having joined the Portuguese giants in 2017,  the 28-year-old has featured 127 times for the club, scoring 44 goals and setting up 16 more. Seferovic has represented the Switzerland national team on 65 occasions, scoring 19 goals in the process.

Seferovic is a proper target man, who would fit into the mould of strikers Jose Mourinho generally prefers. At the same time, he would provide something different to the Tottenham squad up top.

However, he did not have the best of seasons last time out, scoring just five goals in 30 league outings. Although, it must be noted that he has a goal in his solitary appearance in the 2020/21 campaign.

A new striker is very much a necessity at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Seferovic might not prove to be the most popular signing. But, he can get the job done as a backup striker. It remains to be seen who the club brings in before the transfer deadline day of October 5.
