Tottenham Hotspur Want Simy Nwankwo To Partner Kane

Tottenham Hotspur are targeting a move for Nigeria forward Simy Nwankwo as a possible partner for Harry Kane, reports Completesports.com.

Nwankwo caught the eye after scoring 20 goals in 38 league appearances for relegated Crotone in Serie A last season.

The 29-year-old has also been linked with Italian clubs Udinese, Genoa, Lazio and Torino.

According to The Telegraph, new technical director Fabio Paratici is looking to add more firepower in attack as the club target another striker to provide support for Kane.

“Tottenham have identified Simy as a potential option to strengthen their strike force, but it remains to be seen if they will step up their interest in him,” the website was quoted as saying.

Simy is expected to leave Crotone this summer after agent, Vincenzo Morabito, admitted his client could be heading to the Premier League despite preferring to stay in Serie A.

“His preference is for foreign countries; eventually we will consider offers from the upper-middle-range Serie A club.

“We are therefore working mainly on the English market, where the clubs are economically more solid and can offer important figures both to Crotone and to the player. He deserves a championship like that.

“Let’s see what happens in the next few weeks. At the moment, I repeat, the most concrete track is the one that leads to the Premier League.”

    It will be great for Simy. He is capable of benching Iheanacho in the Nigeria line up.

  • Lol don’t compare jst congratlate. My personal opinion @Edoman is and In will say againlike i have always said the Prem Leagues is very fast and I won’t deny that the Italian Seria is right Up there but, the Premier League is a lot faster where as Italy is more technical which means it is less pacy more suited for a slow player like Simi.. Osimhen is special and can be compared with Haaland as they are built like Simy and Onuachu but they are blessed with Blinding Speed. Which sadly Onuachu and Simy don’t have hence may not cut it in England like Osimhen would.

  • they may make it in a Mid to bottom team with less talented players on their rosters but, not for a team like Tottenham which have another player in the mould of Osimhen and Haaland, non other than Harry Kane. Height, Power and Blinding speed sonds like Osi bobo right??
