Spurs are still monitoring Cody Gakpo

Tottenham Hotspur remain interested in one of Europe’s hottest young talents…

What’s the latest?

That’s according to ESPN, who note the Lilywhites’ various top targets for the upcoming January transfer window.

At the end of their segment on the north London outfit, they claim that Cody Gakpo has been scouted by the club amongst others.

Will Spurs sign Cody Gakpo?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Having been one of the many clubs linked with the winger since the summer, they could reignite their interest in this winter window and secure a sensational new signing. Although, it is expected to cost them at least £50m.

However, with Lucas Moura having been rumoured to exit for some time now, this move would definitely spell the end of his Spurs career.

Bye-bye Lucas Moura

Although he has impressed since signing in 2018, he has admittedly never truly hit the heights that were expected of him as he moved from Paris Saint-Germain.

Despite this, his crowning moment will always remain his sensational late hat trick in the Champions League semi-final against Ajax, which fired them into the final.

His first full season yielded a ten-goal league haul, but he admittedly struggled to hit a goal contributions tally over eight for the following campaigns.

It seems that they would not have this problem with Gakpo, who is one of the hottest goal-scorers in Europe at the moment.

Despite having only played 24 games across all competitions this season, the 23-year-old boasts 13 goals and 17 assists.

Who scored Tottenham's first goal of 2022?

He is following up last season’s 21-goal and 15-assist success with an even more devastating year, and he truly is “at the top of his game”, as former West Ham United striker Dean Ashton claimed.

Sofascore has recognised his talents by handing him an average rating of 8.33 in the Eredivisie, form that Statman Dave could only describe as “unstoppable

Gakpo would translate this proficiency into World Cup success, as he would score in each of their group stage matches before crashing out at the hands of eventual winners Argentina.

It has been a monstrous first half of the season for the wide man, and should Spurs win this transfer race, they will acquire a sensational talent to make fans forget they ever had Moura.
