Tottenham identify 17-goal South American as the ‘solution to their offensive problems’

Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move for the Argentine striker Mauro Icardi.

The 30-year-old has been outstanding since his move to Turkish club Galatasaray and he has 17 goals and six assists to his name across all competitions this season.

The South American forward has reinvented himself in Turkey and his performances have caught the attention of Tottenham and Manchester United. It is no secret that Tottenham need to bring in attacking reinforcements and signing a quality finisher Icardi could prove to be a wise decision.

Although the Argentine international is 30, he could still be a very useful option in the attack for Tottenham in the coming seasons. The opportunity to move to the Premier League could be a tempting proposition for the player as well.

He has played in multiple leagues with top clubs and he will want to showcase his qualities in England as well.

According to a report from Fichajes, Tottenham has determined that he is the “answer to their offensive problems.” Whether they can defeat teams like Manchester United and get his signature is still up in the air.

Icardi wants to start the Premier League quickly since he is at the top of his game. In the near term, he might be the perfect Harry Kane substitute.

After Kane left, South Korean star Son Heung-min took up the scoring duties. However, Son will be absent for Tottenham’s AFC Asian Cup due to international duty, thus the team will require a trustworthy goal scorer in Son’s place. Ange Postecoglou may find that Icardi is the best man for the attack.


2.1 tackles, 87.7% passing accuracy: Tottenham join race to sign £30m midfield dynamite

Manu Kone, a midfielder for Borussia Monchengladbach, is being attentively watched by Tottenham Hotspur, according to transfer specialist Rudy Galetti.

Tottenham seems eager to bolster their roster in reaction to a recent decline in performance that was made worse by injuries and suspensions. A possible target for reinforcement appears to be the midfield in particular, especially in light of the continuing rumors surrounding Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s possible exit from Spurs.

Spurs’ midfield situation will be further exacerbated by the fact that Yves Bissouma and Pape Matar Sarr will be competing in the Africa Cup of Nations at the start of 2024 due to James Maddison’s extended injury.

In light of this, Galetti claims that Tottenham is keeping a careful eye on the 22-year-old, who has distinguished himself for Monchengladbach in the Bundesliga this year.

Liverpool and Spurs, two Premier League rivals, are competing for the France U21 international. Paris Saint-Germain, the dominant team in Ligue 1, is reportedly showing interest in the midfield player as well.

Kone’s deal at Borussia-Park is scheduled to expire in June 2026, and Transfermarkt presently values the midfield player at £30 million.

Combative midfielder 

Koné’s exceptional performances for Die Fohlen this season have caused waves in the Bundesliga.

At a commanding 6’1′′, Koné combines his physical strength with incredible speed and agility to cover a lot of ground on the field. He can have a big influence both offensively and defensively thanks to his versatility.

Koné plays with a confident demeanor, showing fearlessness when making tackles and a readiness to risk his life for the group. His skill at passing the ball and his strong work ethic are noteworthy. According to whoscored, he averages 87.7% passing accuracy and manages 2.1 tackles.

His adeptness at holding onto possession—a skill that Ange Postecoglou requires of him—is especially intriguing.

Koné does well when compared to his contemporaries; his possible areas for growth can probably be addressed with coaching and experience.

With the transfer window drawing near, rumors link Koné to a possible departure from Germany, and Tottenham shows interest in signing him. Given his skills and Tottenham’s fast-paced style of play, Koné may be seen as a suitable midfield substitute, particularly once Bissouma leaves for the African Cup of Nations.
