Tottenham Hotspur Showing Interest In This Manchester City Forward: Is He A Good Fit For Spurs?

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, The Daily Star has stated that Tottenham Hotspur are showing interest in Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus this summer. It is believed that Spurs could ask the Brazilian striker to be included in any potential deal for Harry Kane if Man City are serious about signing the English marksman in this off-season (via The Daily Star).

Jesus’ Up And Down Season At Manchester

Jesus is having an inconsistent season at the Etihad Stadium despite winning the Premier League title under Pep Guardiola’s tutelage recently. The 24-year-old has struggled to earn regular first-team starts which have hampered his development in this calendar year.

The Brazilian sensation has banged in 14 goals and provided four assists in 42 matches for the Mancunian giants this term across all fronts. Jesus deserves a pat on the back for averaging 1.8 shots, 0.9 key passes and 1.6 dribbles per 90 minutes in the Premier League and the UEFA Champions League this season. He has even been accurate when distributing possession in the final third after making 84.3% of his attempted passes in both those competitions (stats via whoscored).

Jesus is about to embark upon the prime years of his playing career, so Spurs will do well to get him on board when the transfer window commences next month. He could be a decent long-term option for the North London outfit to consider in the summer.

Is Jesus A Good Fit For Tottenham This Summer?

Jesus is a quick and agile forward who can make some energetic dashes in behind the opponent’s backline. He can get into some promising areas in the attacking third and is usually a composed finisher in front of the opposition goal.

The Brazilian striker has a good work rate and can cause a variety of problems for his marker in the final third. However, he needs to be more consistent if he wants to become a world-class forward like Kane someday.

Maybe sealing a move to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium could help Jesus get regular first-team starts under his belt. We can expect the South American frontman to add plenty of goals to Spurs’ frontline.

Jesus could serve as a decent long-term successor to Harry Kane who has every reason to seek a move to another top club this summer. The Man City youngster is nowhere near the level of Kane but would add a lot of long-term value to the North London club. He will undeniably be a good fit for Spurs this summer because of his potential to grow into a future star in European football.
