Tottenham Hotspur Makes An Approach For This Wolves Forward: The Right Fit For Pochettino?

According to a recent report by the Portuguese news outlet, Record, Tottenham Hotspur have made an approach to secure the signature of Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Diogo Jota during the summer transfer period. The same source has mentioned that Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is looking to add more firepower to his frontline and has identified Jota as an ideal candidate to ease some of the goal-scoring workload off Harry Kane’s shoulders next season.

Jota’s Incredible Rise To Prominence At The Molineux Stadium

The Portuguese striker has enjoyed a brilliant campaign at the Molineux Stadium as he helped his side secure an impressive 7th placed finish in the Premier League table. He has featured in 37 matches for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side this term, scoring ten goals while creating seven assists in all competitions.

Jota also has a Premier League hattrick to his name when he put three past Leicester City back in January. The 22-year-old initially struggled to get going in the English top-flight, but since the turn of the year, he has enjoyed a rich vein of form at the West Midlands club.

He is currently an integral member of Portugal’s Under-21 side having made 20 appearances for them while scoring eight goals thus far. If he can continue his decent goal-scoring run in the coming years, then there is no doubt that he will be a significant asset for his nation in the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

What Will The Portuguese Striker Bring To North London?

Jota can be a real handful for any defender in the opposition half as he is always willing to run and beat his marker down the wide areas. He is highly skilled on the ball, which enables him to complete dribbles without losing possession. Furthermore, Jota is an unforgiving presence inside the opposition penalty box as he often tends to hit the target with his attempts from close range.

The Portuguese sensation will significantly bolster Pochettino’s attacking options at the new White Hart Lane. He will also provide more competition for the likes of Lucas Moura, Delle Alli and Heung-min Son for a regular starting berth in the Tottenham first-team.

Will Jota Be A Good Fit For Spurs?

Jota has all the makings to be a grand success at the North London club if Pochettino is successful in recruiting him this summer. He will fit in well at Spurs as he could play as one of the wide men in the Argentine manager’s preferred 4-2-3-1 system next season.
