Tottenham Hotspur should turn attention to Cheryshev following World Cup displays

Tottenham Hotspur are yet to strengthen their team this summer, but they could do with adding another attacker to their prolific side.

Mauricio Pochettino will be desperate to guide the club to the next level after falling short in title and trophy bids in recent seasons.

Russia attacker Denis Cheryshev has certainly caught the eye at his home World Cup.

The 5ft10 player scored twice in their nation’s opening Group A 5-0 triumph over Saudi Arabia, and he starred again in the team’s second clash against Egypt on Tuesday.

The Villarreal attacker, who spent four years at Real Madrid before leaving in 2016, added to his goal tally in the 3-1 triumph.

Cheryshev also created more shots than any of his teammates and also tried to turn provider by delivering five crosses into the danger area.

The 27-year-old also proved that he is strong in the air, and his overall game would slot into Tottenham’s system.

Cheryshev would add a different dynamic to the North London outfit, and he can also give Pochettino different options due to his versatility.

He predominantly plays on the left wing, but can also switch to the right and position himself just behind the striker.

If the attacker continues to thrive at the World Cup, then he is likely to have many suitors, so Tottenham should move fast.
