Kristian Thorstvedt dreams of Tottenham move
Kristian Thorstvedt dreams of moving to Tottenham one day.
The Norwegian midfielder has had an impressive rise to prominence.
At just 22-years-old the Genk midfielder has already shone for his national team.
A report from Dagsavisen breaks down the midfield man and talks about his abilities and his ambitions.
Thorstvedt, described as ‘Våland’s Frank Lampard’ is famed for the speed of his head as opposed to the speed of his feet.
It was feared when he was younger that he was too slow to ever play for Norway.
Today, though, he’s a fully fledged international and one of Norway’s key men, alongside Erling Braut Haaland.
At just 22 he’s already scored twice in seven appearances for his country from midfield (Transfermarkt).
Dagsavisen predict that the ‘wonderfully refreshing’ midfielder will quickly end up at a much bigger club thank Genk.
It appears that the midfielder’s rise to prominence has been sublime and he has high ambitions.
Kristian Thorstvedt dreams of moving to Tottenham one day, should the Premier League side ever look for a player in his mould.
In truth, the Lilywhites could really use a consistent goal scorer in their midfield.
In Dele Alli, Tanguy Ndombele, Giovani Lo Celso, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Harry Winks and Oliver Skipp there aren’t too many goals.
Of those six, you’d only rely on Dele to consistently fine the net over the course of a season.
That’s where a player like Thorstvedt could be handy.
Spurs have long had issues with their strike force, failing time and time again to bring in a suitable back-up striker for Harry Kane.
If a midfielder who brings goals on a regular basis was signed, the pressure on Kane would be somewhat alleviated.
However, it’s up to Spurs to go out and make any potential move happen.
