In a recent report, Fichajes mentioned that Tottenham Hotspur are preparing to move in for Real Sociedad attacker Brais Mendez. It has been stated that Spurs are keen on recruiting the Spanish sensation in the upcoming January transfer window.
Mendez’s Good Run Of Form In La Liga
Mendez has been a decent performer at the Spanish club after he put in a series of impressive displays for them in the opposition half. The 26-year-old has registered five goals and five assists in 14 matches for Real Sociedad this season across various competitions.
The Spanish talent has given a good account of himself in the final third and deserves credit for averaging 2.1 shots, 1.5 key passes and 1.0 dribbles per 90 minutes in La Liga. He was even accurate when interchanging possession with his teammates after making 83.4% of his attempted passes in the Spanish first division (stats via whoscored).
Mendez is under contract at the Spanish club until the summer of 2028. Hence, Spurs will have to make a big-money move if they are serious about recruiting the Spanish playmaker next year.
Should Tottenham Hotspur Boss Angelos Postecoglu Snap Mendez Up?
Mendez is a good dribbler with the ball at his feet and can make a few clever runs in and around the opponent’s penalty box. He can shoot the ball with power and accuracy from long range and has got the eye to play a few decisive passes in the final third.
We can expect Mendez to bring more goals and creativity to Tottenham head coach Angelos Postecoglu’s attack. Furthermore, He is versatile enough to play anywhere across the North London club‘s frontline.
Hence, it makes sense for Postecoglu to go all out to snap Mendez up when the transfer window commences at the start of next year. At 26, he is about to enter the peak stage of his career and could help Spurs compete across all fronts over the next few years.
However, only time will tell whether the player can make a smooth transition to life in Premier League football. Still, the pros outweigh the cons of recruiting someone with Mendez’s skillset and versatility, so Tottenham should focus on bringing him on board soon.
