Why Sebastien Haller is the perfect summer signing for Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with the young French forward.

According to a report from the London Evening Standard earlier this month, Tottenham Hotspur are keeping a close eye on Utrecht forward Sebastien Haller ahead of the summer transfer window, and the simple fact is he would be perfect for the North London club.

At just 21, Haller is the kind of signing Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy loves to make – a player whose value is only likely to increase in the years ahead but one who could make a sizeable impact at White Hart Lane almost immediately.

While Tottenham have done brilliantly this season, with striker Harry Kane continuing to score regularly and plenty of his teammates also finding the net, manager Mauricio Pochettino will know the importance of bringing in another prolific forward, especially with Champions League football back on the agenda.

Haller has scored 22 goals in 33 matches for Utrecht this season and with a total of 33 strikes and 10 assists in 50 appearances for the Dutch club there is no doubting his talent.

When you also factor in his nine goals in just 13 appearances for France’s under-21s, he is certainly one to watch.

Tottenham have made a habit of building their team around young talent and Haller would arrive at the club knowing he has to work for his chances – a factor that will force him to up his game even further.

Whether playing alongside Kane or (at times) instead of him, Haller is the right addition at the right time and Levy would be wise to make a bid before someone else snaps him up.
