A No-brainer: Tottenham splashing £45m to sign this jet-heeled attacker could be a masterstroke

Tottenham Hotspur should definitely bring in David Neres in January

According to the Express, Tottenham Hotspur are interested in making a move for Ajax winger David Neres. The winger is rated at around £45million and is also attracting heavy interest from the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Borussia Dortmund. Tottenham became the first club to not make a single summer signing in Premier League history.

The Lilyhwites have made a rocky start to their season and lost back to back Premier League games before returning to winning ways against Brighton and Hove Albion this weekend. However, Spurs were handed a nervy end to the game against the Seagulls.

It could be that injuries sustained by Hugo Lloris, Dele Alli and a couple of other stars could have affected the squad’s strength. Tottenham should definitely make a move for the talented David Neres. The London club have been boosted by the return of Son Heung-Min and the rise of Lucas Moura but they still need more firepower to compete on all fronts this season.

The 21-year-old Neres signed for Ajax last season and has a contract with the club until 2022. However, he could be convinced to make the move in January. He scored 17 goals in his debut season in the Eredivisie after making a total of 43 appearances.

Spurs have often relied on the likes of Harry Kane, Heung Min-Son and Dele Alli to produce the goods but in Neres, they will have another potent threat in front of the goal. The Brazilian plays as a right winger but is also comfortable on the left.

He will provide the north Londoners with further pace and energy down the flanks. The 21-year-old has also been fielded as a central attacking midfielder previously and is very much comfortable in that role. A very intelligent footballer, Neres has averaged a pass success rate of 81.8% in the Eredivisie this season. (Stats courtesy – Whoscored)

Mauricio Pochettino

He is extremely fast on the ball and is a skilled dribbler as well. The Brazilian is also capable of shooting from distance. Capable of playing in a wide number of systems and roles, he will definitely flourish under Mauricio Pochettino.

Tottenham’s Argentine coach is known for his ability to nurture young talent and he will definitely transform the Brazilian’s career. The Lilywhites should definitely make a move for the Brazilian in January. Granted, they are going to have to break the bank for this one but it might just be worth it.
