Tottenham has planned to recruit a player that Liverpool is aiming for to reinforce its offense.
Team Talk of England reported on the 5th (Korea time) that “Tottenham is in talks with the Barcelona star to frustrate Liverpool’s plan to replace Mohamed Salah.”
Hafinha, who played an active role for Leeds United, drew the attention of many big clubs by scoring 11 goals and 3 assists in 34 games of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2021-2022 season. Ahead of the 2022-2023 season, Arsenal, Tottenham, and Liverpool wanted him, but Hafinha chose to move to Barcelona, his dream club, instead of moving within the EPL.
He displayed good performance in his first season at Barcelona. He garnered 10 goals and 12 assists in 50 official matches, earning trust from coach Xavi Hernandez. However, Ramin Yamal lost ground this season. Xavi actively gave chances to Yamal, the future of his team, and Hafinha was pushed to the bench more often than not due to sluggishness and injury.
Barcelona has also considered selling the new product. Barcelona, which is experiencing financial difficulties, is forced to send the new product, which has been pushed out of the starting lineup, to reinforce its players.
When Hafinha came to the market, Tottenham came forward. It was faster than Liverpool, which wanted Hafinha as a substitute for Salah, which has recently been rumored to be a transfer. 헤라카지노도메인
Team Talk said, “Haphinha is attracting the attention of EPL clubs. He was initially considered as a possible replacement for Liverpool after Salah moved to Saudi Arabia. However, Tottenham sought to recruit a new winger after missing out on Antonio Nusa and seems ready to fight Liverpool for Haphinha.”
“Tottenham reportedly started talks with Hafinha’s agent about a summer transfer. Tottenham is trying to stay ahead in the recruitment race. He can play on both sides and compete with Son Heung-min, Brennan Johnson, and Dejan Kulusevski. His speed and ability also suit manager Enze Postecoglou’s system. He will consider transfer fee of around 50 million pounds.”
Tottenham has already been focusing on strengthening its offense since last summer. It has already hired Brennan Johnson and brought Timo Werner on loan. However, Johnson is still adapting to the team, and Werner is disappointed with the goal-making ability. Hafinha, which has both playmaking and finishing with kick ability, is a resource that can be a great help.
If Hafinha is recruited, he is likely to lead Tottenham’s attack on both wings with Son Heung-min. If Tottenham even recruits Hafinha in the upcoming summer transfer market, it is expected to build a stronger power.
