The Tottenham Hotspur fans in the Transfer Tavern have been delighted by the performances of Harry Kane on the international stage as the 24-year-old continues to go from strength to strength.
The likes of Harry Maguire, Kieran Trippier and Jordan Pickford have received plenty of praise from across the British media so far this summer for their performances throughout the World Cup, and to an extent they have overshadowed Kane somewhat. However, the lack of specific focus on Kane does not suggest that his performances are below what we have come to expect – in fact, it’s quite the opposite.
Aside from a cagey opening fixture in which rhythm is notoriously difficult to come by within international tournaments, Kane has been consistently excellent at holding the ball up, single-handedly creating attacks, winning free-kicks in crucial areas and, of course, doing what he does best: finding the back of the net.
The trajectory Kane is on is simply remarkable for a player who was hardly tipped to enjoy huge success as a youngster, and it’s fair to say he’s verging on unstoppable at the top level right now.
But like any top player, Kane will believe that he can still improve his goalscoring return and overall play, and the arrival of quality attacking players at Tottenham would certainly go a long way to helping him achieve his personal aims.
With that in mind, Mauricio Pochettino should target one of the star’s of the World Cup this summer in order to bolster his attacking options, namely Hirving Lozano.
The 22-year-old winger launched himself into the Mexican stratosphere by scoring the winning goal against Germany in their opening fixture of the World Cup, but his impact was hardly surprising considering the level of success he enjoyed in the Dutch Eredivisie last season.
Lozano bagged an incredible 19 goals and 11 assists from just 34 appearances in all-competitions for the club on his debut season in European football.
His instant impact arrived due to his ability to frighten defenders with his electric pace and determination to consistently go past his opposite number before finding the end-product to match his compelling build up play.
The prospect of seeing Lozano in tandem with Kane on the breakaway is a mouthwatering one for supporters to contemplate, although it would certainly come at a steep price following his World Cup showing.
The space he would create for Kane by dragging defenders out of position would certainly aid Tottenham’s number 9 in his bid to break all records before him with the Lilywhites and, based on his meteoric rise thus fas, Lozano would be well worth forking out for this summer.
