Tottenham Hotspur is accelerating the work of reinforcing the attacking team. This is because Harry Kane’s future is unclear and Son Heung-min’s slump is getting longer.
British media ‘Express’ reported on the 28th (Korean time) that Tottenham jumped into the race to sign Eli Wahi (20), one of the best prospects in French Ligue 1.
Express said, ‘Tottenham went on a hunt for Wahi to match the scoring record of Kylian Mbafe (25, Paris Saint-Germain). Tottenham and Arsenal are watching Wahi,’ he explained.
The record set by the Express is the most goals scored before the age of 20. Wahi turned 20 on January 2 this year. Wahi scored 20 goals in Ligue 1 before turning 20. According to Express, the only players over the past 40 years to have scored 20 goals in Ligue 1 as a teenager are Mbappe and Wahi.
The Express said, ‘In the past 40 years, only teenagers have set this record with Mbappe and Wahi. Thierry Henry and Karim Benzema couldn’t do it,’ he praised this achievement.
Wahi also belongs to Montpellier, which is weak in Ligue 1. It is a more difficult environment to score goals than Mbappe, who played for the strongest team, Paris Saint-Germain.
Wahi can play both center forward and left and right wing forward based on his 184cm tall physique condition. 먹튀검증
It is a resource that Tottenham needs. Tottenham are worried about both center forward Kane and left wing forward Son Heung-min. Kane is very likely to leave Tottenham at the end of this season. Son Heung-min’s performance has declined sharply compared to last season. This is why they are eager to find a striker despite signing winger Arnaud Danjuma through the transfer market in January.
However, it is unclear whether Tottenham can easily recruit Wahi.
The Express reports that ‘Wahi is said to want to stay at Montpellier at least until the end of the season. The battle between Tottenham and Arsenal will unfold in the summer transfer window. Tottenham will need a new striker at the end of the season,’ he predicted.
The price is also expected to rise. Transfer Markt, a transfer site, has evaluated Wahi’s current value at about £16 million (about 24 billion won). However, Express said, ‘Montpellier will try to sell Wahi for at least 26 million pounds (about 40 billion won)’.
