Will Salah be a January transfer target for Tottenham?

Posted on October 10, 2013 by Random Spurs Supporter

Mohammed Salah of Basel has been linked with a transfer to Tottenham for much of the past six months or more, AVB could not have failed to be impressed by his destruction of the Tottenham fullback in the quarter finals of the Europa League last season, especially in the first leg at White Hart Lane, since then he has continued to progress and was instrumental in helping his team defeat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge quite recently, he scored the first goal for Basel and was their most impressive player by some margin.

Still only 21 yrs of age and with a huge amount of European experience he fits the Tottenham criteria and with a price tag of just £15m he comes relatively cheap. The Egypt international is a pacy, tricky, right winger and he has that important extra ingredient of being able to score goals, his career record is better than a goal in every three games.

With AVB having to do without Aaron Lennon for most of the season up until now following another injury, there must be genuine concern as to whether he will ever be able to maintain form and fitness on a more regular basis, and of course he has never been a prolific goalscorer whilst his assist record has often been called into question. Andros Townsend has stood in for Lennon with good effect but even he has some work to do on his game as he seems to have become a little one dimensional.

Unless Aaron Lennon quickly regains form and retains his fitness or unless Townsend can produce more in the final third and that includes something other than cutting in and shooting from distance on goal at every opportunity, then perhaps Salah would be a good move or perhaps it is a situation that will have to wait for the summer, particularly if Basel make it through from their group into the knockout stages of the Champions League.
