Son Heung-min’s potential new strike partner has been outlined.
“Tottenham have set Jota, 24, of Al Ittihad, as their number one target ahead of the January transfer window,” British outlet CutOffside reported on Wednesday.
Tottenham have gotten off to a flying start this season. After eight games in the league, they have six wins, two draws, and 20 points to lead the table, ahead of Arsenal and Manchester City.
It’s not without its anxieties. There are still concerns about Harry Kane’s absence. Unlike Son Heung-min, who has been scoring consistently, he has only scored one league goal this season.
Experts were also concerned about this. “I think they need someone who can score more goals from the front,” former Tottenham goalkeeper Brad Friedel, 52, said in a recent broadcast.
Tottenham may also be looking to add to their offense in the January transfer window. According to reports, Spurs boss Enze Postecoglou is keen on signing Jota.
Jota was one of the key players in Celtic’s treble run last season. He scored 15 goals and provided 12 assists in 43 games across all competitions and was a big part of the Celtic attack.토토사이트
He is also known to be a favorite of Postecoglou. In his two seasons under Postecoglou’s tutelage, Jota scored 28 goals and 26 assists in 83 games.
This season has been a nightmare compared to last season’s performance. Since joining Al Ittihad in July, Jota has been unable to play in the Saudi Arabian league due to regulatory reasons.
He is desperate to get out of Saudi Arabia. According to CutOffside, “Jota wants a move to Tottenham. The deal will depend on the outcome of negotiations between Tottenham and Al Ittihad.”
