Alvarez to Tottenham – Fantasy or Feasible?

Tottenham Hotspur FC have been looking to sign a new forward in the summer transfer window, and the owner of the reputable Spurs podcast Lilywhite Rose, John Wenham, believes that the North Londoners should try to acquire Manchester City’s exit-linked Argentine striker Julian Alvarez.

Julian Alvarez has enjoyed a fantastic season at the Etihad Stadium, with Argentina netting eleven goals and a further tally of nine assists in the Premier League last season. This, complemented by his electrifying halo on the pitch, means Wenham wants Spurs to put their name in the hat if the 24-year-old were to depart City this summer.

The former River Plate star is open to moving away from Manchester City if a move materializes this summer, per The Athletic, with an ample of high-profile clubs interested in acquiring his services. And Wenham feels that signing him would be a game changer for Spurs.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with Tottenham News, Wenham said:

“Tottenham should be putting themselves forward to sign Alvarez. He’s a fantastic player, a World Cup winner, and can play anywhere across the frontline. He has huge upsell value as he is young and will only improve with consistent minutes. I would love for Tottenham to throw their hat in the ring; he would be a very exciting signing.”

While his acquisition would be an exciting prospect, it will be difficult for Tottenham to land Alvarez. His current employers will not only ask for hefty fees, but Spurs will also need to compete with some of the most elite clubs in Europe for his signature. 

Many Tottenham faithful will scuff the rumour, as this looks highly unlikely to be a signing that Levy and the club would make, especially considering the potential of the player and the sum involved. But this is the mentality that needs changing.
