According to a report by reliable Spurs correspondent Charlie Eccleshare, Arsenal striker and Premier League star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was in fact being ‘looked at’ and considered by Tottenham before chairman Daniel Levy opted not to go through with a move.
Aubameyang, who has gone on to star for the club’s rivals ever since a £56 million move from Borussia Dortmund back in January 2018, could have been a Spurs player if Levy followed through on his perceived interest, as per the Athletic.
Should Spurs have signed Aubameyang?
Yes, would have been a great deal
No, we had Kane coming through at the time
As Tottenham scour the market for a capable back-up to Kane, being linked with the likes of Habib Diallo, Arkadiusz Milik and, recently, Patson Daka (football.london), Levy felt a past swoop for Aubameyang was too far out of the Lilywhites’ price range at the time – especially considering they already had an ‘elite‘ forward.
Fast forward to now, and one of Spurs’ top priorities for the window is signing an attacker to provide much-needed strength and depth in that area – potentially leaving critics to wonder what might have been if the club decided to invest in the Gabon international.
Given Spurs’ struggle to find a new forward to partner Kane so far, supporters may be wondering what might have been had Levy followed through on this past interest.
