Why didn’t you sign him? Pochettino and Spurs will regret not signing this strike ace in January

Spurs had a quiet January but ultimately got their main target in the end with the signing of Lucas Moura from PSG confirmed before the the window slammed shut for the Londoners. 

The Wembley based club have been steady in the league so far this term, and this week further highlighted their quality with a showing against Manchester United which made Jose Mourinho’s men look decidedly poor.

Here in the Tavern, our landlord and some of our punters have been mulling over the window this week, discussing a few transfers who didn’t come off and looking at players who they feel their club could have perhaps made a move for.

One area which came to light which Spurs missed out on improving was up front, where the burden is firmly on Harry Kane’s shoulders to fire in the goals, with Fernando Llorente offering little so far.

One such player who could have joined Spurs if they had put up the money is current Torino strike ace Andrea Belotti, who plundered in the goals last term to draw a whole host of interest from the world’s biggest names this summer just gone.

However, he didn’t get his move, and despite only four goals this term, he is still a class act.

Spurs need to add another striker at some point, and someone like Belotti could be ideal. Capable of playing alone if Kane is out but also as a partnership, the Italian could be the ideal sort of signing to fit in under Pochettino and might help secure a coveted Champions League spot for the London club.

Spurs fans, what do you think? Would Belotti have been good? Let us know in the comments!
