According to an update courtesy of Portuguese broadcaster CMTV, Benfica star Haris Seferovic is ‘close to Tottenham’ as chairman Daniel Levy looks to add a new striker to Jose Mourinho’s roster – especially given star forward Harry Kane is their only natural option at present.
Seferovic, who scored nine goals in all competitions last season, racking up an impressive 27 strikes the year prior, is reportedly edging close to a Tottenham move as Kane’s potential understudy – and the Switzerland international possesses bags of experience on the biggest stages in world football.
Is Seferovic a perfect back-up option for Tottenham?
Yes, great forward
No, could do better
Indeed, at just 28-years-old, Seferovic has represented his country at both the 2014 and 2018 World Cups, scoring one goal in the competition, and has proved himself to be a national hero on the route to qualifying.
Back in late 2018, for example, the forward tore a star-studded Belgium team to shreds with a hat-trick that sent Switzerland into the UEFA Nations League finals.
Taking into account his performances both domestically and internationally over the last two years, Seferovic has the potential to be a bargain addition at Spurs given his meagre £9 million valuation by Transfermarkt.
If he can rediscover his past 2018/2019 form in the Premier League, chairman Levy and co may well be laughing, and CMTV claim he is indeed close to joining Spurs as talks to sign Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar also take shape.
Standing at a lofty 6ft 1, Seferovic could also possess the physicality needed to adapt in England’s top flight and arguably fits into the Mourinho-type mould of a forward option.
