8 goals in 10 games: Jürgen Locadia wanted Tottenham move in 2016 - time to move?

Juergen Locadia of Eindhoven welcomes the fans prior to the friendly match between FC Eindhoven and PSV Eindhoven at Philips Stadium on July 26, 2016 in Eindhoven, Netherlands.

The PSV Eindhoven ace would be a useful signing for Tottenham Hotspur in January.

Mauricio Pochettino, manager of Spurs looks on prior to the Pre-Season Friendly match beween Tottenham Hotspur and Juventus at Wembley Stadium on August 5, 2017 in London, England.

Mauricio Pochettino has built an incredibly strong squad of players at Spurs, since his appointment as manager in May 2014, but there are still questions being asked as to whether they have enough strength-in-depth in the forward department.

Harry Kane's recent absence from the side has highlighted a real issue for Tottenham, with the lack of any kind of focal pint through the middle costing them in big games.

As a result of this, Pochettino will surely be looking to bolster his attacking options in January, and an interesting target for him could be PSV Eindhoven ace Jürgen Locadia, who has previously admitted his desire to move to Spurs.

During an interview with Dutch media outlet Voetbal International in the summer of 2016, the 23-year-old said:

“It’s something to think about. I’m getting older. Just look at Vincent Janssen. Getting a good year and the opportunity, and then go to a nice club like Tottenham Hotspur. That’s my dream.”

The Dutch ace has been in sensational form in the Eredivisie so far this season, scoring eight goals and providing two assists in 10 league outings for PSV, helping them to the league summit.

An orthodox centre-forward by trade, Locadia can play anywhere along the front-line, and that kind of versatility would surely appeal to Pochettino.

He is incredibly quick off the mark, and clinical when presented with a goalscoring opportunity, but most importantly, he would offer real competition for Harry Kane.

And if Pochettino does manage to bring him to Tottenham, it could turn out to be a signing of real significance for the club.
