In a recent report, Fichajes claimed that Tottenham Hotspur are facing stiff competition for Barcelona ace Ansu Fati. It has been mentioned that Spurs will have to rival Manchester United and AC Milan in the race to land the Spanish speedster in the summer.
Fati’s Up-And-Down Season In Spanish Football
The Barcelona youngster is having an uninspiring season at the Nou Camp despite putting in some eye-catching displays in the final third. Fati has found the back of the net on seven occasions and earned three assists in 41 matches for the Catalan club during this campaign across multiple competitions.
The Spanish wide player has made most of his appearances off the bench which explain why he is only averaging 1.8 shots, 0.4 key passes and 0.7 dribbles per game in La Liga. He has even been tidy with his ball distribution after completing 85.5% of his attempted passes in the Spanish first division (stats via whoscored).
His current contract at the Catalan club is set to expire in the summer of 2024. Thus, Spurs would be wise to get a deal done for him on the cheap in this off-season.
Tottenham Hotspur Facing Stiff Competition For Fati: Is He Worth The Fight?
Fati can use his pace to make a few dangerous runs with the ball out on the wide areas. He has got the eye to play a few decisive passes in the final third and can shoot the ball with power from all ranges.
However, the Spanish talent has to find a way to improve his productivity in the final third. He is primarily a left-sided wide player but can also play as a right-winger or operate as a centre-forward if asked to do so.
We can expect Fati to add more pace and goals to Tottenham‘s attack. He would even increase competition for places within Spurs’ match-day squad.
Fati will definitely help the North London club compete for some major trophies in the coming seasons as long as he can adapt to the physical nature and high intensity of Premier League football.
At 20, Fati has his best years ahead of him which makes him well worth the fight as Spurs look to win the race for him this summer.
