South American football expert Tim Vickery told talkSPORT that he feels Manchester United owned Javier Henandez would offer Tottenham more than current centre forward Roberto Soldado.
There is a real need for some attacking support at White Hart Lane, with the London Evening Standard among the sources suggesting that Tottenham are one of the teams interested in signing the Mexican.
“It would (be interesting) – I did see a bit of him because of the crossover with Mexican clubs – You could see in him that he had something in and around the penalty area – He’s definitely got more than Soldado who’s there at the moment,” he told talkSPORT.
Would Hernandez work at Tottenham?
He’d certainly be a popular figure because of how hard he works in attack.
He never stops moving and is similar to Harry Kane in the respect that he’s always looking to drag players out of position, which creates space and he’s also always looking to get on the end of chances created by the midfield.
He’s also quick, so he’d offer some pace to the side, which is a commodity that Kane doesn’t possess and it’s something which would give the Tottenham attack a fresh dimension.
Whether United are willing to sell him while their own attacking reserves are quite thin is doubtful so any deal for Tottenham depends on United bringing in their own reinforcements to back up Wayne Rooney.
It may be the case that they would prefer to rely on Hernandez performing at Old Trafford this season but there is plenty of time left in the transfer window for this saga to take another twist.
