In a recent report, The Sun revealed that Tottenham Hotspur are ready to go back for Wigan Athletic forward Kyle Joseph after missing out on him in last summer’s transfer window when they made a £150,000 offer for him. However, it is understood that the Latics need to come out of administration or would have to cash in on some of their players this week which could open the door for Spurs to land the Scottish youngster (via The Sun).
Joseph’s Rapid Rise In The League One
Joseph has done well to break into the Wigan first-team this season after coming through their youth ranks over the past few years. He has caught the eye by producing some promising displays in the League One this season and managed to bag a hattrick in a league match versus Burton Albion at the back end of last month.
The 19-year-old deserves a pat on the back for averaging 1.2 clearances, 1.8 shots and 1.4 dribbles per game in the third tier of English football. However, he has been a bit sloppy when linking up with others around him as he has completed only 58.9% of his attempted passes in league football (stats via whoscored).
If Jose Mourinho is looking to establish a period of long-term success at the Tottenham Hotspur, then it makes sense for him to target someone of Joseph’s potential during this January transfer window as he is a player on the rise and could become a future star in England.
What Does The Latics Whizkid Offer On The Pitch?
Joseph has got decent pace under his belt and can make some intelligent runs with the ball in the opposition half. Standing at 1.86m, he can win some important headers for his side using his strong frame and leaping ability.
The Scottish prospect has also proven his worth as a composed goal-scorer at the DW Stadium. However, he is still quite raw and would need time to hone his skills before he can be a first-team footballer for a Premier League team like Spurs.
Is Joseph A Prospect For The Future?
At 19, Joseph could potentially become a world-class player in his position if Mourinho is willing to nurture him by taking him under his wings at North London in the years to come. He is undeniably a prospect to look out for in the future, so Tottenham will do well to lure him away from Greater Manchester before the transfer window closes at the start of next month. Maybe in a few years’ time, Joseph could serve a decent back-up to Harry Kane if all goes well for him at Spurs.
