According to a recent report by the Mirror, Tottenham Hotspur will fight it out with Arsenal and Southampton in pursuit of RB Salzburg youngster Hannes Wolf. The same report has revealed that Spurs are interested in securing the services of the Austrian talent as they look to build towards a bigger and brighter future under Mauricio Pochettino.
The Rise Of Hannes Wolf
Wolf can be considered to be one of the most promising young talents in Europe and has often been compared to Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen due to his playing style. The 19-year-old has only played football in his homeland and is yet to experience what its like to play in a foreign nation. He is currently representing one of Austria’s most prominent clubs in RB Salzburg and is in for a promising career in European football.
The Austrian wonderkid has featured in 21 matches for Salzburg this season, scoring four goals while creating nine assists in all competitions. Wolf has also become an integral member of the Austrian Under-21 side after scoring one goal in 8 appearances at the international stage.
What Will The Austrian Talent Bring To North London?
Wolf has a great burst of pace and is a very capable dribbler with the ball. He is quite direct with his runs and can beat his marker in a 1v1 situation. There is no doubt that the Austrian still has a long way to go if he wants to become a starter at one of Europe’s top clubs.
The 19-year-old is also quite versatile and primarily plays in the number 10 role but can also be unleashed down the right flank or as a central striker up top which makes him a perfect fit for Tottenham. Wolf still has a lot of time to grow and develop his game so he can prove his worth at the highest level in the coming years.
Should Pochettino Move In For Him?
The potential acquisition of Wolf will undoubtedly bolster Pochettino’s youth ranks at North London. He will be a shrewd signing for the future, and the Spurs boss might be the perfect manager to oversee his progress and develop him into a world-class talent in a few years. Hence, Tottenham should consider recruiting him by fending off stiff competition from other English clubs in pursuit of Wolf’s signature.
