Why Tottenham are better option than Arsenal or Chelsea for Munir

White Hart Lane 6

Tottenham Hotspur are the best option for Munir El Haddadi if he's open to a Premier League move.

Barcelona youngster Munir is reportedly open to a loan move away from the Nou Camp, with Arsenal and Chelsea mentioned as possible destinations.

However, Tottenham Hotspur are a better option for him than either side.

The reason he reportedly wants a loan move away is because he’s not starting in Luis Enrique’s Barcelona side. In fact, he hasn’t started a match for them in La Liga all season.

That’s where the problem with Arsenal and Chelsea’s interest comes in and why Spurs are a better option for him.

Arsenal’s interest in Munir is well known and with Alexis Sanchez in their ranks, they arguably have a great chance of getting him.

The problem is that Arsenal already have so many good attacking options who provide different things for Arsene Wenger in attack.

The same goes for Chelsea, although the Blues have fewer forwards.

Chelsea play predominantly with one striker up front and Jose Mourinho has all angles covered, with some world class players in wide and central positions in behind the front man.

The main reason Tottenham are a better option is because they could arguably use an extra attacking player in January and frequently play a system, which is based around having two central attacking players at the top of the team.

They do have a very large squad, but when it comes down to chances of games, Spurs are a better proposition than Arsenal and Chelsea.

Spurs also have a manager in Mauricio Pochettino who embodies similar qualities to those displayed in the tactics of Barcelona.

Spurs and Barca are teams that like to press the ball high and build pressure in the opponent’s half to try and force them into making a mistake.

Harry Kane may be on a great run of form but Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado still have big question marks hanging over them and Munir could help alleviate some of the pressure Pochettino and the side is under.

He ticks the right boxes in terms of finances and the club should definitely consider a move.
