SON Kane’s unchanging position… ‘Rebuilding’ Tottenham’s position to strengthen
Correspondent Kang Dong-hoon = Tottenham Hotspur (England) has mentioned center back, goalkeeper, and central midfielder as positions to be reinforced during the upcoming summer transfer market. The positions of key players who performed well, such as Son Heung-min (30) and Harry Kane (29), remained unchanged.
‘Daily Hotspur’, which specializes in Tottenham news, said on the 1st (Korean time), “The rebuilding has not been carried out at the ideal and desired speed, but it has finally begun to ‘materialize’.” The position that needs to be strengthened is clear.”
At the same time, based on the 3-4-3 formation that coach Antonio Conte (53, Italy) mainly uses, the position Tottenham needs to recruit during the summer transfer market is left blank. Two positions as center back, goalkeeper and central midfielder were left empty.
In fact, Tottenham is in desperate need of a center back reinforcement. It is facing limitations, such as a sense of stability and weight. Moreover, since taking the baton, Director Conte has consistently requested reinforcement of center backs suitable for the level. Looking at the reaction of the fans, they want Kim Min-jae (26, Napoli), Alessandro Bastoni (23, Inter Milan), and Piero Incapie (21, Bayer Leverkusen).
The replacement of the gatekeeper is also considered ‘essential’. This is because Hugo Lloris (36) has noticeably deteriorated recently, with frequent mistakes. Several candidates are already being discussed locally. Jordan Pickford (28, Everton), David Raya (27, Brentford), and Robert Sanchez (25, Brighton & Hove Albion) are on the list.
There are already useful resources, but the central midfielder also needs to be strengthened. In particular, based on his vigorous activity, it is necessary to reinforce a type of midfielder who has the ability to create a clear scoring opportunity while balancing in the midfield. Fans are hoping for Nicolo Barella 스포츠토토, who was coach Conte’s ‘favorite pupil’.
Meanwhile, looking at the positions filled, Son Heung-min, Kane, and Dejan Kulusevski (22) formed an attacking triangle. Including Destiny Udozi (20), who is out on loan, Rodrigo Bentancur (25), Pedro Poro (23), and Cristian Romero (24) took one spot each.
