Tottenham Agreeing Key Signing but Make a Pointless Move

Pochettino-TottenhamTottenham have been looking to reinforce their strike-force for quite some time to provide support and cover for star striker Harry Kane.

If reports (Sky Sports) are anything to by then 19-year-old French international Moussa Dembele had a medical with the North Londoners after Fulham agreed to sell the youngster.

As per the provided Sky Sports link, the center forward is being loaned back to Fulham for the rest of the season and that move makes no sense.

Spurs have more than a few attackers but needed an out and out forward to add depth in the strike-force. Dembele’s arrival sorts that dilemma but loaning him back is a pointless move unless Mauricio Pochettino signs another striker before the transfer window ends tomorrow night.

The Argentine boss has to act swiftly if they are to sign another forward or else Spurs will once again suffer the disappointment like last summer when they failed to lure Berahino.

It must be mentioned that if Harry Kane gets injured, Spurs may find themselves in serious trouble and their brilliant season can be adversely influenced.

    It doesn’t make ‘no sense’…any one of the other clubs chasing his signature could have made the same deal Spurs have made, if Spurs didn’t make it. So, it really depends on just how highly Spurs rate him – and by all accounts Mr Mitchell really does do his due diligence on potential signings. So, if him, Poch, etc., really do believe he has the potential to go on to World Class level [sic.] and they can only be certain of getting him if they do this deal (but pretty sure someone else will get him if they don’t), then it may be slightly frustrating that he goes back to Fulham, but it does have its own logic.

    I have zero idea how good he may or may not be, BTW.

    We have Kane, Chadli, N´Jie, Son and Lamela. The new Dembele will be good reforcement next season. COYS!
