According to a recent report by the Express, Tottenham Hotspur are lining up a move to secure the signature of Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Diogo Jota in the summer. The same source has also revealed that Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is eager to recruit the Portuguese forward so that he can take some of the goal-scoring workload from Harry Kane’s shoulders.
Jota initially struggled to hit the ground running in the Premier League; however, he has managed to turn things around on the pitch over the past few months. The Portuguese talent has struck up a formidable strike partnership with Raul Jimenez up front and has been very productive for Wolves in recent weeks.
Since making a permanent switch from Atletico Madrid last summer, the 22-year-old has featured in 28 matches for Nuno Espirito Santo’s team this term, scoring seven goals while creating five assists in multiple competitions. He has also been a vital member of the Portuguese Under-21 side and is destined to play a massive role for his country at the senior level in the coming years.
His most notable performance at the Molineaux Stadium came against Leicester City back in January when he scored a hattrick to help his team claim a hard-fought 4-3 win in front of their home supporters.
Jota is a real live wire in the opposition half as he is full of tricks and can make clever turns to beat his marker down the wide areas. He is a very useful dribbler with the ball and can be a lethal finisher in front of the opposition goal.
The acquisition of a player of Jota’s talents will undoubtedly bolster Pochettino’s attacking options at White Hart Lane. Spurs have currently got the likes of Heung-min Son, Fernando Llorente and Lucas Moura vying for a place alongside Kane in Pochettino’s frontline. Jota’s addition will not only improve their squad depth but will also increase competition for places within Tottenham’s senior team.
Daniel Levy and co. should do everything in their power to lure the Portuguese wonderkid to North London next summer as Jota is a player who can help them win some significant trophies in the coming years.
