Tottenham should go after Lozano this month, not Malcom

Tottenham Hotspur should be going after Hirving Lozano, not Malcom.

Malcom has been linked with a move to the north Londoners after a dismal stint at Barcelona so far.

The Brazilian, who signed last summer after snubbing AS Roma, has struggled for regular game time at the Nou Camp and has made just six appearances in La Liga, totalling 118 minutes of pitch time.

Spanish journalist Guillem Balague has suggested (via The Express) that Barca want to sell him, but that Tottenham are no longer interested because that kind of money is not there.

This comes after The Independent had reported Spurs were ready to resurrect their interest in him.

Whether there is interest or not, the club should refocus their efforts on trying to sign Lozano.


Why Lozano is a better option than Malcom

Spurs were last linked with the Mexican winger before the January window opened (The Mirror), but all has gone quiet since.

The PSV Eindhoven winger has been enjoying a fine season over in the Eredivisie having scored 11 goals and made six assists in 18 league games so far.

Lozano, previously linked with Chelsea and Arsenal, would be a better option for Spurs because he has been playing regular football this term which has only aided his development – whereas Malcom has stagnated.

The versatile forward, who can play anywhere along the frontline, also starred for his country at the World Cup which could be further evidence that he is a better option than Malcom. His upward trajectory has shown little sign of easing off.

Tottenham would be taking a risk on Malcom; moving for Lozano is something that could aid the club in the here and now, especially with injuries to Dele Alli and Harry Kane, and Fernando Llorente having left a lot to be desired.
