Tottenham could unite one of the most exciting attacking duos in the Premier League next season according to TalkSPORT’s Alex Crook.

The journalist was speaking on the radio station about Tottenham’s transfer plans, and he says that Ange Postecoglou is going to be backed at the north London club this summer, while Harry Kane is also expected to stay at the club.

Furthermore, Crook also spoke about the idea of James Maddison coming to north London, speaking up the prospect of Maddison and Kane working in tandem in Ange Postecoglou’s attack-minded system.

Maddison and Kane link-up

Crook spoke about the ‘brilliant’ player potentially signing for Spurs.

“Ange Postecoglou having come in is going to be backed by Spurs. They want to keep Harry Kane, looks like he will stay at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Spurs fans, what about a link-up between Maddison in midfield threading those balls through to Kane to continue his quest to become the Premier League’s top goalscorer ever? It could well happen,” Crook said.

Mouth-watering

The idea of Kane and Maddison playing together is mouth-watering to say the least.

Not only would Maddison be able to find Kane with his defence-splitting passes, he’d also be able to run beyond Kane and benefit from his creativity too.

Let’s not forget, Kane is also one of the game’s great playmakers, and if he has Maddison in the team alongside him, he could help the 26-year-old score bags of goals at Tottenham.

For years Kane and Heung-Min Son have been Spurs’ most important partnership, but that could change if Maddison joins the club.

This is certainly an exciting prospect and even neutral fans may be hoping to see Maddison and Kane in the same team next season.

 

 

‘Been banging the drum’: Heung-Min Son has been telling Spurs to sign ‘fantastic player’ – journalist

Heung-Min Son has been telling Tottenham Hotspur to sign Kim Min-Jae for quite some time according to Graeme Bailey.

The journalist was speaking about the defender on the Fully Loaded Transfer Show, and he noted that he has been writing stories about the Napoli centre-back for quite some time, stating that Son has been banging the drum to bring him to Tottenham for a little while.

The centre-half has established himself as one of the top defenders in Europe over the past 12 months with Napoli, and Son has been telling Spurs to go out and get him signed for quite some time.

Son has been banging the drum

Bailey shared what he knows about the Napoli defender.

“Napoli had to put that release clause in his deal and he’s a wonderful talent. I have been doing stories about him for a number of years since he was in China, mainly because Son has wanted him at Tottenham, he’s been banging the drum for his friend, he’s a real unit of a defender, he’s a fantastic player,” Bailey said.

Should’ve listened

This has to hurt.

Kim Min-Jae has established himself as one of the best defenders on the continent now, and Tottenham were given the heads up about him before anyone else.

Son, of course, knew the defender well from his time with the national team, and while he was pleading with Spurs to sign the centre-back, they didn’t get the deal done.

Tottenham should really have listened to Son and pushed the boat out for Kim as he could’ve been just what the doctor ordered at the heart of what has proven to be quite a shaky Tottenham backline in recent years.

Spurs missed out on a real gem in the past, and perhaps they should be going back in for him at this juncture.
