The Lowdown: Spurs eye striker move…
The Lilywhites and their manager Antonio Conte have been in the hunt for a centre-forward alternative to Harry Kane since the January transfer window, with journalist Alasdair Gold describing the pursuit as a real priority.
Sharing a development, Radio Kiss Kiss now have some very interesting news involving Osimhen.
The Latest: Conte eyeing Osimhen move…
As per the Italian source, via Area Napoli, Conte is personally eyeing a move for the Nigeria international, who Spurs now want to sign ‘at all costs’.
Amid serious interest from the Premier League, it is claimed that Napoli have ‘already set to work’ on his replacement if he does leave for England.
The Verdict: Promising development…
Tottenham’s apparent determination to sign Osimhen comes as a promising claim, going by his stellar Serie A performances over 2021/22.
The 23-year-old stands out by some distance as Napoli’s most threatening player in the Italian top flight this season, scoring more goals (11), averaging a higher rate of shots per 90 (3.3) and accumulating the highest overall match rating (7.17) out of anyone in their squad (WhoScored).
It is little wonder that football scout writer Zach Lowy branded Osimhen ‘unplayable’ during the current campaign and it’s even less of a mystery why Conte allegedly wants the striker at Tottenham.
