While striker Arnaud Danzuma (26, Villarreal) has become influential as Tottenham’s first recruit in the winter transfer market, local forecasts have emerged that Son Heung-min (31) will be pushed out of the selection competition when signing Danzuma. Like Son Heung-min, he is a left winger who mainly uses his right foot, and Son Heung-min’s recent poor form is expected to mesh.
The British Evening Standard said on the 25th (Korean time), “If Danzuma joins, it will provide new offensive options to coach Antonio Conte (54, Italy).” It will be a negative factor,” he said.
At the same time, Tottenham’s predicted starting lineup was released if Danzuma joined, but the media put Danzuma’s name in place of Son Heung-min in both 3-4-3 and 3-5-2 models. In the 3-4-3 formation, it is expected that Harry Kane, Danjuma and Dejan Kulusevski will build both sides of the offensive line, and Danjuma will stand as Kane’s two-top partner in the 3-5-2 formation.
It is also a bitter prospect considering that Son Heung-min was the top scorer in the English Premier League (EPL) last season and has been a key striker for Tottenham for a long time. The media said, “Son Heung-min scored goals in only two games in the EPL this season.” “Danzuma mainly played as a front two-top striker or left wing forward in Villarreal. Danzuma’s loan signing will be an alternative to Son Heung-min.” said.
Danjuma, a Dutch national born in Nigeria, is from PSV Eindhoven and NEC Nijmegen Youth, and has been playing for Villarreal since 2021 after going through Club Bruges (Belgium) and Bournemouth (England). This season, he has scored 6 goals in 17 matches this season, including 2 goals in 10 league matches and 2 goals in 5 UEFA Europa Conference League matches. 스포츠토토
Initially, Everton transfer was likely, but it is known that Tottenham recently jumped into the scouting and succeeded in ‘hijacking’. Transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano said on the 25th (Korean time), “Danzuma, who was scheduled to transfer to Everton, is heading to Tottenham. The transfer will be completed after a medical test.”
