Tottenham Hotspur In A Three-Way Battle To Sign This La Liga Forward: Good Choice For Pochettino?

According to a recent report by the Guardian, Tottenham Hotspur are interested in securing the services of Celta de Vigo forward Maxi Gomez during the summer transfer window. However, the same source has also mentioned that Spurs will face stiff competition from Liverpool and West Ham United in pursuit of the La Liga striker at the end of this campaign.

The Impressive Rise Of Maxi Gomez

The 22-year-old came through the youth system of Defensor before he decided to make a career-defining switch to Spain when he joined Celta Vigo in the summer of 2017.

Gomez has enjoyed a productive campaign in the Spanish top-flight after he put in a string of match-winning displays under Fran Escribá’s tutelage during this season. His incredible goal-scoring contributions have put Celta Vigo in pole position to avoid relegation heading into the final game of this campaign.

The Uruguayan striker has featured in 35 matches for the La Liga outfit this term, scoring 13 goals while creating five assists across all competitions. Gomez has also represented Uruguay in 11 international matches while scoring one goal for them so far.

What Will The South American Sensation Bring To White Hart Lane?

The Paysandu born talent has decent pace and can be a physically dominant centre-forward inside the opposition penalty box. However, what makes him a prolific forward is his ability to convert chances in the final third. He is a lethal finisher in front of the opposing goal which makes him such an invaluable asset for Celta Vigo.

The potential addition of Gomez will undoubtedly bolster Mauricio Pochettino’s attacking options at the new White Hart Lane. He will be a perfect back-up to Harry Kane and has all the makings to give the English forward a run for his money for a place in Spurs’ first XI. Furthermore, he will also add more goals to the Tottenham frontline and can be nurtured into a world-class striker in the coming years.

Will Gomez Be A Good Option For Spurs?

Hence, he will be a fantastic acquisition for Pochettino to consider in this offseason as he will enable the North London giants to compete on all fronts in the next campaign.
