Tottenham are enjoying a successful 2017/18 season under Mauricio Pochettino, with the Argentinian boss’ side firmly in contention for a top-four spot, and safely through to the knock-out stages of the Champions League where they will face Italian champions, Juventus.
The North London side are beginning to hit their stride at exactly the right time, with talismanic striker Harry Kane’s remarkable goalscoring form the catalyst behind the club’s recent fine performances. We can’t get rid of the Spurs fans here in The Transfer Tavern, who love nothing more than popping in for a good old chinwag about their beloved side with our landlord over a pint and a game of pool. Excitement is building amongst fans now that the transfer window is open for business, and chat has centred around where the club must improve to secure a top-four finish.
There exists a fear amongst the Spurs faithful that should Kane become injured then their form could curtail, with some outside the Spurs family even going as far as to brand the club a ‘one man team’ at the moment. This denied by our fans here in The Tavern, but there is a partial agreement that a suitable back-up or secondary option for Kane must be procured if the club are to challenge on a consistent basis. With that in mind, our landlord couldn’t help but suggest a bid for Porto striker, Vincent Aboubakar. It is a real surprise that the Cameroonian striker has not been picked up by a Premier League side sooner, with the 25-year-old in remarkable form in recent years. Prolific spells with Lorient in France have been backed up by thirty-one goals in only fifty-nine league appearances at Porto, as well as twelve whilst on-loan at Besiktas last season.
Aboubakar (rated at a bargain £11.70m on Transfermarkt) is a natural goalscorer with bags of ability, and paired with Kane, could be enough to transform Spurs into contenders for both domestic and continental trophies. Should chairman Daniel Levy open his chequebook to sign the player, then Spurs could have one of the most ruthless striking partnerships in European football.
Spurs fans, could the addition of another top quality striker turn your side into trophy contenders? Let us know!
