Report: Tottenham like Kvaratskhelia who almost joined AC Milan
Tottenham Hotspur like Rubin Kazan attacker Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, according to football.london.
What’s the story?
Spurs could yet sign a winger on transfer deadline day. And if the club completes a deal for a wide player, the plan is to move Heung-Min Son, alongside Harry Kane up front.
Spurs’ interest in the Georgia international was reported by the player’s agent a few weeks ago.
Speaking to Georgian media, as reported by Football Italia, the figure confirmed Leeds, Juventus and the Lilywhites’ interest.
Meanwhile, reports in Russia, via Football Italia, claimed AC Milan were closing in on a move.
Kvaratskhelia enjoyed a breakthrough campaign with Rubin Kazan last season. He scored four goals and registered eight assists in just 23 league appearances in the Premier Liga.
He is already a full Georgia international and has made eight appearances for his country.
Winger should be a priority for Tottenham
Increasing the goal output in the final third will no doubt have been a priority for Nuno Espirito Santo.
Tottenham scored a healthy 68 times in the Premier League last season, but 64 of them were contributed by Kane and Son.
Therefore, signing a winger should be a priority for Tottenham amid Kvaratskhelia interest.
Using another wide player as a means to push the South Korean closer to his strike partner is extremely clever.
Son and Kane shine when they play alongside one another. They seem to share a chemistry that is unexplainable and has made Spurs an irresistible force in the final third.
Using both players in a two-man forward line could be a masterstroke from Nuno as he looks to continue his great start to life in N17.
