Transfer News: Spurs in the race to sign 17-goal star playing in Manchester

Published

Tottenham Hotspur have entered the race to sign England star Raheem Sterling 

According to City Xtra on Twitter (h/t Football.London), Tottenham Hotspur are keen on signing Raheem Sterling from Manchester City.

Sterling’s current deal at the Etihad Stadium is coming to an end next year, causing uncertainty over his future. He’s been linked with a transfer away from the club, with Tottenham being one of the possible destinations. 

The 27-year-old has been one of England’s most productive wingers this season, scoring 17 goals and assisting eight times in 47 games across all competitions. Adding him to our roster would be a fantastic prospect, especially given the board’s desire to improve the squad’s quality by bringing in world-class players.

The versatility of the City ace to play anywhere across the frontline would also be beneficial for us in the future. After all, Ajax target Steven Bergwijn may opt to leave N17 at the end of the current season in order to gain more consistent playing time ahead of the FIFA World Cup.

Sterling to Spurs?

Furthermore, one can question if Lucas Moura would agree to continue to play second fiddle to Dejan Kulusevski in the future. Following the Swede’s January arrival, Moura’s minutes have significantly decreased. Conte cannot be faulted for this because the Juventus loanee has been outstanding thus far.

Sterling has shown his worth as a false nine in the middle of the pitch under Pep Guardiola and can even play in that position at N17. However, if our present team remains intact, it will be difficult to find a position for Sterling in our frontline.

Son Heung-min, who is undoubtedly one of the best in the world at the position, is untouchable down the left flank. Tottenham could be better off investing their time, energy, and money in a target who really comes in and improves the starting lineup.

And hence, Sterling would be more of a luxury signing rather than a necessity. If we sign him, good. If we don’t, it won’t be the end of the world. We have more than enough attacking options right now to get by another season.

The focus should instead lie in reinforcing our defence and midfield.
