Tottenham Hotspur should consider move for the Napoli ace before Thursday’s deadline.
Tottenham fans are beginning to get twitchy.
Mauricio Pochettino kicked off the summer is superb fashion, signing Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon and Jack Clarke from Leeds United, before loaning the latter back to the Championship club.
Spurs fans expected those new arrivals to be followed by a number of other new signings including the likes of Giovani Lo Celso and Ryan Sessegnon.
Tottenham have also been credited with an interest in Bruno Fernandes in recent days (The Daily Mail).
Spurs would be well served in lining up other targets, however, just in case they fail to secure deals for the above mentioned players.
And with this in mind, the north London outfit should make a move for Napoli’s midfield ace Piotr Zielinski.
Here’s three reasons why the Polish ace would be an excellent addition for Tottenham…
Energy and dynamism
The Poland international seems to be ideally suited to Pochettino’s high-octane setup at Spurs. He possesses energy in abundance, and his tenacious playing style is perfect for the robust, intense nature of the English game.
Zielinski is an expert at receiving the ball in tight spaces, and being able to pick out passes because of his exceptional vision. This would give Tottenham a totally different option in the engine room, and he would be able to form a wonderful partnership with any two of Ndombele, Harry Winks or Moussa Sissoko.
The new De Bruyne?
The 25-year-old has already drawn huge praise within the game, with the head of the Polish football association Zbigniew Boniek claiming that he already has more quality than Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne, as quoted by the Mirror:
“He will be the next De Bruyne? I think Zielinski already has more quality than De Bruyne. They are different kind of players, of course, but they have the same ability to leave their mark on the team. I think that he will become a top player.”
Zielinski won’t come cheap, however. Italian publication Corriere dello Sport claims that he has a €65 million (£59 million) release clause inserted into his current contract with Napoli.
The Poland international, 25, is a truly brilliant player, however, and he really would be a superb signing for Tottenham.
In fact, he might just take them to that elusive next level this season.
Much will obviously depend on whether Spurs are successful in their reported pursuits of Lo Celso and Fernandes, however.
