Tottenham fans have yet again had a memorable season without any silverware coming there way, something that is surely going to change soon right?
For how good they have been at times, it still seems that Spurs are miles away from their rivals and need several upgrades to keep up the level of pressure they have been applying in recent years. Over a league season, we mean. The win over Manchester City in the Champions League proved Tottenham can beat anyone over two games, though the next phase of the project needs to be over a 38-game long domestic campaign.
With the sparkling new stadium getting more compliments by the game, it’s about time Tottenham just went for it in the transfer window and brought exactly what they needed to win some silverware to match the ambition of the stadium move.
A back-up striker is a position likely to be explored this summer and Celta Vigo’s Maxi Gomez is one player linked (via the Daily Mirror) that could really be a fantastic signing for Spurs.
Gomez, (who is valued at £31.5 million on Transfermarkt) is a no-nonsense forward that could really do the business for Tottenham, so Daniel Levy must get straight on it.
A trouble that Tottenham have is that very rarely will strikers want to join a club to be second choice, like they would with Spurs behind Harry Kane.
But if they managed to persuade anyone, it really should be Maxi Gomez.
The Uruguayan forward has supplied 11 goals for Celta Vigo this season, despite them being amongst the relegation battle.
That, without a doubt, shows that he is capable of producing the quality even when his team-mates can’t, meaning his goal contribution would only rise with better players surrounding him at Tottenham. Having a reliable hit-man such as Maxi Gomez could mean that Tottenham could benefit from more team rotation and different systems can be explored by Mauricio Pochettino.
Do you agree Maxi Gomez would make a good signing… Let us know!
