Tottenham Hotspur are now reportedly targeting a move to sign Noni Madueke before the summer transfer window ends.
The Lowdown: Ex-Lilywhite
Madueke was an Academy player at Spurs, and featured for them in the U18 Premier League back in the 2016/17 season (Transfermarkt).
Should Tottenham sign Madueke?
He left north London to join PSV’s youth system in 2018, and has since worked his way up into their first team.
The Latest: Spurs return
As per The Evening Standard, the Lilywhites are now targeting a potential move to sign Madueke back, while Mikkel Damsgaard is also a target.
It is said that they would like to add another creative player to their squad, and so have turned their attentions towards Madueke.
The Verdict: Must sign
Bringing Madueke back to THFC is a no brainer given just how much he has kicked on since leaving.
The England U21 international scored nine goals and made a further eight assists in 32 games in total over all competitions in the 2020/21 term, which is very impressive considering that he often operated on the wing (Transfermarkt).
Described as a ‘very explosive’ player by former PSV midfielder Tommie van de Leegte, the possibility of having both Madueke and Son Heung-Min on opposite flanks is a truly frightening concept for Nuno Espirito Santo’s team.
Nonetheless, at just 19 years of age, he still has so much potential, as former England youth manager Aidy Boothroyd compared his rise to that of Phil Foden back in March and current PSV boss Roger Schmidt hailed him as a ‘special’ talent who can become one of the world’s best.
This looks like a no brainer for Spurs.
