Tottenham Hotspur: Habib Diallo could be Harry Kane’s perfect striking back up – Opinion

Tottenham Hotspur: Habib Diallo could be Harry Kane’s perfect striking back up – Opinion - Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

Speaking exclusively to French news outlet Le Republicain Lorrain, Metz defender Matthieu Udol confirmed that Tottenham striking target Habib Diallo is in fact seeking a move away, and the Lilywhites could land a perfect Harry Kane understudy for a reported £12.5m fee. 

Diallo, who has been linked with a move to north London over the past few months, is also said to be keen on a switch to Spurs – with a report courtesy of BeIN Sports via TEAMtalk suggesting that he favours Tottenham over all other interest.

Given the Senegalese target man’s eagerness for a Premier League move, specifically to link up with Jose Mourinho, and the Lilywhites’ dire need for a forward who can provide strength in depth behind Kane, this appears to be a match made in heaven.

Which striker would you prefer Spurs to sign?

At just 25 years of age, Diallo hit double figures for Metz over 2019/20, racking up 12 goals in 26 starts for the club (WhoScored).

Fellow Spurs-linked forwards Callum Wilson and Josh King, whilst impressing in flashes for Bournemouth last season, could only just beat that total with their tallies combined (14).

Given that the homegrown duo could command higher prices, it’s debatable that a swoop for Diallo cries out as the superior transfer option, especially going by his overall statistics.

Indeed, the 6 ft 1 colossus, whilst averaging more shots per match than Kane last season, also won a head-turning 4.3 aerial duels per game in that time, drawing attention to his physicality and presence up front.

While Diallo seeks pastures new, and has shown real interest in a north London move, it appears that Daniel Levy could strike gold with this bargain swoop.

Lilywhites, should Diallo be made a striking priority? Join the discussion by commenting below…
