League’s 2nd Highest Scorer’ Will SON Reach his Peak Again there is no Money in the Winter Transfer Market
Will Tottenham and Son Heung-min once again miss the team’s heyday? Given the number of injuries to the squad, passive movement is expected in the winter transfer market. This is a situation that could literally be the second coming of a season in which they failed to win due to past investment savings.
David Ornstein, a reporter for the global ‘The Athletic’, said on the 10th (Korean time), “Tottenham do not have money in the winter transfer market. They used the transfer fee for Harry Kane in advance,” and added, “So, we will prepare creative moves in the transfer market, but we will not be able to change positions such as center back.” “There will be pressure because of this,” he claimed. 안전놀이터
Tottenham will play Wolverhampton in the 12th round of the 2023-24 Premier League season at Molineux Stadium in West Midlands, England, at 9:30 pm on the 11th. Second-place Tottenham (8 wins, 2 draws, 1 loss, 26 points) is closely chasing leader Manchester City (9 wins, 2 losses, 27 points). Wolverhampton (12 points) is in 14th place.
A match between Korean strikers Son Heung-min and Hwang Hee-chan is scheduled. Both players are showing off their peak skills. Son Heung-min scored 8 goals and is tied for second in league scoring with Mohamed Salah, following Erling Haaland (11 goals). ‘The Korean Guy’ Hwang Hee-chan scored 6 goals and is tied for 6th place in scoring.
The situation for Tottenham, who had been leading all along, is not good. Tottenham suffered a 1-4 defeat against Chelsea on the 7th. It was a game fraught with misfortune. Tottenham’s center back Christian Romero received a direct red card for rough play in the 33rd minute of the first half. In the 9th minute of the second half, even fullback Destiny Udoji suffered suicide by being sent off for accumulating warnings.
We lost two key defenders in an instant, but it wasn’t the end. The bad news was that James Maddison, the key player in the midfield, and another central defender, Mickey van der Ven, were replaced due to injury at the start of the second half. Maddison’s injury is minor, but Romero and van der Ven are both unavailable.
Since Tottenham has a relatively thin squad compared to other strong teams, the departure of this player is coming as a fatal blow. Naturally, the assessment is that Tottenham must make a life-or-death bet in the winter transfer market. In fact, it is assessed that at least strengthening the center back is necessary for good results.
Due to a series of player departures, Tottenham’s movement in the winter transfer market has become important. Previously, there were reports that Tottenham was also actively seeking reinforcements. However, Ornstein, a reporter familiar with Tottenham, directly refuted that there would be restrictions on movements in the winter transfer market.
Ornstein said, “Tottenham don’t have a lot of money to spend in the winter transfer window. They used Kane’s transfer fee in advance in the summer transfer window,” and added, “They need reinforcements in the winter transfer window, so they need to make a lot of creative moves.” He predicted, “The release of players was not done well for the sake of the players. There will be problems with center backs with Van der Ven being absent for a long period of time.”
Considering Van der Ven’s injury and Romero’s future suspension, Tottenham will have to hold out until December with Eric Dier as the only professional centre-back. Even in this situation, if reinforcements are not made well in the winter transfer market, there is a high possibility that the team will be far from winning, no matter how good Son Heung-min’s form is.
What kind of performance will Tottenham Chairman Daniel Levy, known as ‘a salty guy’, perform in the transfer market? The injured are injured, but Son Heung-min, Yves Bissouma, and Pape Sar will be missing in January due to the Intercontinental Cup, so if there are no proper recruitments in the winter transfer market as reported, Tottenham’s ‘DTD’ is expected.
