Tottenham Hotspur Joins Man United In The Race To Sign This Winger: A Move Spurs Need To Make

According to CalcioNapoli24, Tottenham Hotspur are the latest club to join the pursuit of PSV Eindhoven winger Hirving Lozano. The Lilywhites have set their sights on the Mexican international amid reports linking Son Heung-Min with a move to Real Madrid this summer.

As a result, Lozano has been identified as their desired replacement for the South Korean international. However, they will face stiff competition from Manchester United, Napoli and Paris Saint-Germain in the pursuit of this highly talented PSV attacker.

What can Lozano bring to the table?

A left winger by trade, Lozano is known for his dynamic presence in the final third. He is a masterful dribbler, who loves to take on defenders while his electric pace makes him a genuine threat on the counter. He has completed an impressive 66 dribbles during the 2018/19 campaign – twelfth highest in the league.

Aside from his dribbling prowess, Lozano’s brilliant vision and immaculate control over the ball allows him to probe the opposition defences. The 23-year-old has supplied 2.1 key passes per game this past season. And most of those chances have originated from crosses, which is indicative of his crossing ability.

However, what makes Lozano such a sought-after attacker in European football is his productivity in the final third. The Mexican international has been involved in 33 goals in just 40 matches across all competitions for PSV this past season, which is an astonishing record for any attacker.

Should Tottenham make a move for Lozano?

Lozano would be a smart addition to Tottenham Hotspur as they aim to bolster their attacking options this summer. Besides, the Lilywhites have lacked the services of a natural winger, with both Son and Lucas Moura operating in a more central role in recent months. And the only remaining winger in the side in Erik Lamela has struggled with injuries.

Lozano, in that regard, will offer Mauricio Pochettino some much-needed depth in the wide department. Also, the 23-year-old is an inverted winger, meaning he likes to cut-inside instead of acting like a typical wide-attacker and that tunes in well with Spurs’ overlapping fullbacks.

Tottenham are yet to be involved in serious business as far as their transfer market activity is concerned. But, investing in young talent like Lozano could send out a statement of intent from the North Londoners as they look to capitalise from an excellent season that saw them reach the final of the UEFA Champions League.
