Polarin Balogan is being considered by Tottenham Hotspur as
a replacement for Harry Kane.
Tottenham have had an active transfer window this summer. In order to make up for the poor performance last season, reinforcements were completed at the right time. They brought in James Madison to find a long-lost replacement for Christian Eriksen and brought in Guglielmo Vicario as goalkeeper to replace Hugo Lloris. On top of that, Mickey Van the Ben strengthened the defense and prepared for the future by embracing Aleho Bellis and Ashley Phillips. In addition, they even fully recruited Pedro Poro and Dejan Kulusevski, who were ‘renters’.먹튀검증
However, ‘bleeding’, which is difficult to recover, also occurred. ‘Ace’ Kane left for Bayern Munich. With an impeccable personal career but no championship history, Kane sought a transfer to realize this ambition. Chairman Daniel Levy did not want to sell Kane, but Munich’s persistent attitude raised both hands and eventually sent him out at an amount of 100 million pounds (approximately 170 billion won).
Tottenham’s top priority now is to fill Kane’s vacancy. In response, manager Enze Postecoglu used Richarlison as a front-line striker during the opening match. Son Heung-min, Madison, and Kulusevski assisted him in the second line. It was a sad look. Richarlison showed active movement, but failed to score a goal.
Even if Richarlison settles in smoothly, he cannot play a full season alone. Based on the football statistics media ‘Transfer Markt’, the only ‘professional’ striker resources available to Tottenham are Richarlison and Bellis. Son Heung-min and Brian Hill could stand, but they are not in the best position.
Additional recruitment is planned. British media ‘Daily Mail’ revealed that Tottenham are considering signing Arsenal’s promising Vallogan. British media ‘The Sun’, Italian media ‘Gazetta dello Sport’, and Steve Kay of ‘Football Transfers’ also covered the same news.
Balogan has been active at Arsenal for a long time. He came from youth through his age group and made his senior debut in the 2020-21 season. Although he was highly regarded for his potential, his first-team wall was high and he gained experience on loan from the second half of the 2021-22 season. And he exploded his potential last season. As Stade Reims’ main striker, he scored 21 goals and 3 assists in 37 matches in the league alone, ranking 4th in the scoring rankings. During the season, he was even ranked higher than Kylian Mbappe.
However, it is unknown whether it will be in Arsenal’s plan next season. British media ’90min’ revealed that Balogan’s future at Arsenal was uncertain. He also considered a transfer. ’90min’ has revealed that Vallogan does not want to go on loan next season and that he is considering a permanent move if there is no place at Arsenal. In fact, he did not even appear in the league opening match of the 2023-24 season.
Several teams want a kick. Monaco and Inter Milan are watching his situation, and Monaco is the most active.
