In a recent report, Fichajes claimed that Tottenham Hotspur could move in for Juventus forward Alvaro Morata if they end up losing their captain Harry Kane next year. It is understood that Spurs are planning to make an attempt to bring the Spanish striker to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as a potential replacement for Kane.
Morata’s Impressive Campaign In Italian Football This Season
Morata has made a bright start to this season as he has already produced some productive displays for Juve before the international break. The Madrid-born marksman has featured in seven matches for the Turin giants in this campaign, netting three goals and registering one assist across various competitions.
The 28-year-old has managed to establish himself as a dangerous presence in the final third, based on his average of 2.2 shots, 1.3 key passes and 0.8 dribbles per 90 minutes in Serie A this season. However, he needs to take care of the ball a bit better, as evidenced by his pass success rate of 73.6% in the Italian first division (stats via whoscored).
Will Morata Be A Good Signing For Tottenham Hotspur?
Morata is a quick and agile forward who can make some clever runs with the ball in behind the opponent’s backline. He has added a few assists to his game as well which shows that he is maturing into a decent playmaker in the final third. The Spanish sensation can generate a yard of space for himself to get a few shots in on-target. He deserves credit for transforming himself into a reliable goal-getter in Italian football.
Thus, it makes sense for Spurs to engineer a move to bring Morata to North London in January or at the end of this campaign. At 28, the Spaniard is currently playing at his peak, so Nuno Espirito Santo can expect to get the best out of him in the coming seasons.
Morata could serve as a decent replacement for Kane even though he is not as lethal as the English forward in front of the opposition goal. Still, the Tottenham fans can expect the Spaniard to add plenty of goals to Nuno Espirito Santo’s frontline. Hence, Morata could turn out to be a decent signing for the London giants if the player can maintain his high standards if given the chance to seal a return to English football.
