Moutinho rumoured to be heading to Tottenham.

Posted on May 18, 2013 by Eddie S

It has been widely reported in the Portuguese press that Joao Moutinho is finally heading to Tottenham this summer and that the player has accepted that it is time for a new challenge. Whether this is true or not the fee suggested in Portugal of 40m euros is way off the mark and almost double the figure reported to have been agreed last summer of 23m euros. the report also goes on to state that Tottenham must raise the fee by selling Gareth Bale which we know is drivel.

There is little doubt that Moutinho is a player that would add much to the Tottenham team and allow AVB to set up in his favoured 4 3 3 formation, every Tottenham supporter would welcome a player of his ability and hopefully he will arrive, but I can’t help thinking that there must be better options out there at the price that he would demand. It seems to me that Tottenham actually need a playmaker that will provide plenty of assists and ten or more goals as that is what they now lack. Chelsea have Hazard, Oscar, Ramirez and Lampard as well as Mata, Arsenal have Cazorla and Walcott whilst City and United have plenty of players chipping in with goals.

Hopefully should AVB choose Moutinho this will allow Dembele to provide more of a threat as it seems he has been encouraged to do more recently, he was a forward when purchased by Fulham and was converted to a very effective central midfielder, with his ability he should be driving into the box and having far more efforts on goal.

There seems to be strong interest in the Hamburg player Son and having seen some of his recent performances I can understand why, he and another specialist goalscorer would be ideal. Just what happens with Defoe and Adebayor is anyones guess at this stage but if either or both should be released then they would also need replacing as well.

There are likely to be some major changes this coming season as Townsend and Rose will be fighting for position as well as Tom Carroll, if a player like Son were brought in it would seem that Aaron Lennon might be most at risk simply because he does not bring sufficient goals to the table, although his workrate and team play is exceptional.

I am not entirely sure that Moutinho is the essential ingredient or that 4 3 3 is the way forward, perhaps 4 2 3 1 is better suited to this squad especially with a player like Bale and perhaps Son.
