Tottenham’s Belgian connection set to grow.

Posted on July 09, 2013 by Scraggs

Surely Christian Benteke is now Tottenham bound and ready to join up with a couple of his compatriots to spark a Tottenham charge on the four teams who finished ahead of them last season. Already Tottenham have two of the best, Jan Vertonghen an accomplished central defender who in his first season in the Premiership was voted into the Premier League team of the season, and Moussa Dembele a midfield powerhouse able to take the game to any opposition, but for his own injuries and the loss of his midfield partner Sandro he too would almost certainly have been another of the stars of last season, unfortunately in the later stages he was asked to contribute in other areas to help the team and often played whilst carrying an injury.

Now it seems that another Belgian International is ready to assist in the challenge, Christian Benteke has handed in a transfer request and looks likely to leave Aston Villa sooner rather than later, it will take yet another transfer record of Tottenham’s to secure his services with a fee likely to be around the £25m mark, this should not deter Daniel Levy in the slightest as Benteke is still only 22yrs old and is still developing as a player, he will consider that there is very little to lose financially and in fact if things go as planned he might have yet another superstar on his hands.

Benteke is one seriously big powerful striker, he stands 6’3″,  is quick and superb in the air, he has a presence about him and his hold up play is as good as anybody out there already. If AVB is intending to utilize a 4 3 3 formation much of the time then the addition of Benteke will be just about perfect, in fact 4 2 3 1 or 4 4 2 also suits a player of his ability.

If Tottenham can get this one over the line then they will be just about set, only perhaps requiring a modification here and there once AVB and his staff have assessed the squad now that they are back on the training field.

Surely if a player is willing to put a transfer request in writing that player and presumably his club must be aware of strong interest from a third party, hopefully that third party is Tottenham and if so expect to see a speedy conclusion now that the wheels are in motion.
