Lewandowski and Hulk looking for new clubs? Will AVB step in?

Posted on July 05, 2013 by Scraggs

Clearly Hulk is suffering from his transfer to Zenit and the Russian league, whilst Scolari remains committed to choosing him for the Brazilian team he really has disappointed during the Confederation Cup and the friendlies leading up to the competition. He remains a very hard worker but as a goal threat he has not really been at the races.

He is now continually talking up a return to another part of Europe and in particular the Premier League, the problem is obviously his fee, Zenit apparently paid something like £40m for his services just 10 months ago and his only hope might seem to be genuine interest from Chelsea who would not baulk at the fee if they truly wanted the player. There is one other possibility, which assumes that AVB would really like to resume his association with the player and hope to get the best from him, this though would probably involve a loan situation with the option to buy if the player lives up to expectations and more importantly Tottenham win entry into the Champions League.

In Germany, just yesterday, Dortmund confirmed that they had completed the signing of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and this might suggest that the club are about to relent and allow Lewandowski his wish to leave the club, whether this will be to his preferred option of Bayern Munich or an alternative is another matter. Lewandowski is undoubtedly a top class performer and would be perfect for Tottenham without breaking the bank because his contract has run down with only 12 months remaining, in reality he will either get his way and join Bayern in a one team league, or he will end up at Chelsea or more likely Real Madrid, the latter because of  the expected departure of Higuain.

I am not convinced that Hulk now fits the Tottenham profile, Gareth Bale has developed into a player able to operate in the position he has always excelled in and so the money that would be involved would be better utilised in other areas, whereas Lewandowski’s availability has probably come a year too soon from Tottenham’s perspective.
