Concerns are raised that Tottenham Hotspur’s signing of Arnaut Danjuma will greatly threaten Son Heung-min’s position among the existing strikers.
Tottenham announced on the 25th (Korean time) that it would sign Danzuma, who was from Spanish club Villarreal, on loan for the remainder of this season. The option to call completely transferable is also included.
Danjuma is a Nigerian-born Dutch striker. He went through Bournemouth in England and scored 16 goals and 4 assists for Villarreal last season, and was recognized as a high-quality striker. However, this season, as his performance decreased, the promotion to the ‘2022 Qatar World Cup’ was canceled.
Danjuma is a forward striker and left winger who can score goals. The role overlaps with Son Heung-min. Rumors of a crisis with Son Heung-min, which had been raised at the time of signing Hischarlisson last summer, raised their heads again. In the past, the dominant analysis was that Son Heung-min, who was the top scorer in the English Premier League (EPL), would not be pushed back as a candidate. On the other hand, Son Heung-min currently only has 6 goals and 3 assists (including cup competitions), and especially since the World Cup, he is somewhat sluggish with 1 goal and 1 assist in 7 games, so rumors of a crisis are bound to be raised.
‘Evening Standard’ predicts the competitive structure after Danjuma joins and ‘will be the biggest threat to Son Heung-min. This is because Son Heung-min’s sluggishness has no sign of ending. Son Heung-min assisted Harry Kane’s goal in the most recent match against Fulham, but his performance was still disappointing. Son Heung-min’s position was threatened by Hischarlisson, who had already shaken off his injury,’ he analyzed. 메이저사이트
In addition, it was analyzed that Son Heung-min’s future is uncertain in the long run, given that Danjuma, like Son Heung-min, is a ambidextrous striker who can attack from the side. Danjuma is 26 years old and Son Heung-min is 31 years old.
However, it is unlikely that Son Heung-min will be pushed out immediately with the recruitment of Danjuma. Tottenham need to send a striker in the winter transfer window to prevent oversaturation of the attacking team, and it seems that it will be Lucas Moura or Brian Hill.
