Tottenham Hotspur have set their sights on a new striker.
“Tottenham have entered the race to sign Marcos Leonardo, 20, from Santos in a bid to bolster their attacking line,” Spanish outlet Fichajes reported on Thursday.
Tottenham have suffered a major power leak this summer. Harry Kane, the team’s leading scorer until last season, left for Bayern Munich, leaving a gaping hole in the offense.
Kane’s absence was significant. Tottenham manager, Enze Postecoglou, identified Thierry Henry as the team’s new striker, but he hasn’t been able to produce enough goals to satisfy.
The solution was to play Son Heung-min up front. In his first appearance as a striker in the fourth round of the league against Burnley, Son scored a hat trick and emerged as the hope of the forward line.
The need for a striker hasn’t gone away. “If I was a Tottenham fan, I would want to sign a striker right now,” Gland international Gabriel Agbonlahor said in an interview.
“If Spurs are going to be in the top four of the league, it’s going to cost them. It’s not possible without a top-class striker.”
Leonardo has emerged as a potential target. According to the report, Spurs are considering him as an attractive option to bolster their forward line 메이저사이트.
Leonardo is considered a striker with a lot of potential for future growth. He proved his potential last season with Santos, scoring 17 goals in 36 games across all competitions.
A move cannot be ruled out. “Santos know that they can make a lot of money on Leonardo’s transfer. He will leave the door open for a move,” the outlet analyzed.
