Perotti could give Son a new role at Tottenham Hotspur if he joins from Roma

Tottenham Hotspur are considering a swoop for Roma winger Diego Perotti, according to Tuttomercatoweb.

What’s the word?

The right side of the pitch has often been mentioned as a possible area where Spurs should strengthen.

However, Tuttomercatoweb reported last Friday that that manager Mauricio Pochettino is looking at Perotti to boost the left side.

The Argentine had an impressive campaign for Roma last season, scoring eight goals and creating five assists in 35 appearances in all competitions.

Son Heung-min has been an impressive figure on the left, but if Spurs want to continue progressing, they need bodies to fill the squad.

If Perotti signed, what would happen to Son?

Giving too much limited game time to Son would not make any sense due to his regular contribution.

Last season, for example, the 25-year-old found the back of the net 18 times and produced 11 assists.

If Perotti manages to win a first-team spot, then Pochettino should consider playing Son as another strike option.

It is safe to say that Harry Kane will not be knocked off the top spot in the team, but when the hitman requires rest or gets sidelined with an injury, Son is more than capable of filling the void.
