Tottenham Hotspur are planning to add a winger to their squad.
British media outlet ‘Football Transfers’ reported on January 18 (KST) that “Tottenham are interested in signing Barcelona’s Zafinha in the January winter transfer window. Tottenham have withdrawn their offer for Brentford striker Ivan Toney.”
Son Heung-min has continued his good start to the season. Son struggled with a sports hernia and orbital fracture last season. He bounced back this summer with a successful surgery. He was also named Tottenham’s new captain ahead of the season.
He wore the captain’s armband in the opening game, but it was a disappointing performance. He came out on the left wing and threatened twice, but neither time resulted in a goal. On top of that, Son conceded a penalty after committing a foul in the Tottenham penalty box. Fortunately, goals from Christian Romero and Emerson Royale earned them a 2-2 draw with Brentford.
Son Heung-min started on the left wing, but he wasn’t the same player. He was more of a helper, creating chances for his teammates rather than creating them himself. Enze Postecoglou opted to play him up front. However, when he struggled like he did last season, he began to move Son up top, and that’s where his goals came into play.
Tottenham were missing Kane. Kane came up through the Tottenham youth ranks. He spent the first part of his professional career on loan, gaining experience before returning to Tottenham and becoming their signature striker. Kane was at the top of his game, winning three PL goals and one PL assist. Even last season, Kane scored 30 of Spurs’ 70 goals. Kane was the lifeblood of Tottenham’s offense.
When Kane moved to Munich this summer, Postecoglou looked to him as a replacement. However, he was just as disappointing as he was last season. He couldn’t keep the ball in the attacking third and was indecisive.
In his frustration, Postecoglou opted to play Son Heung-min up top. Postecoglou’s decision to play Heung-min up top paid off. Heung-min’s goal-scoring has improved with his move up front. Heung-min scored a hat trick against Burnley. 무지개토토
Since then, he’s continued to play the nail (Heung-min + up top). Heung-min was silent against Sheffield Wednesday but came alive in the North London derby against Arsenal. The Gunners took the lead when Xherdan Shaqiri’s shot was deflected by Romero. Son Heung-min restored parity when he found the back of the net from a pass from Maddison. Tottenham then conceded a penalty to fall behind again. However, Son Heung-min quickly equalized and the score remained 2-2.
