Spurs: Alasdair Gold drops exciting striker claim

Football.London reporter Alasdair Gold has delivered an exciting claim involving Spurs striker Kion Etete.

What’s the story?

During a Q&A on Reddit, Gold said: “There are huge hopes for Scarlett as long as he keeps his head down and keeps working hard. Parrott is having a really good season of development at MK Dons and keep an eye on Kion Etete, who is tearing it up at Cheltenham.

“I think Spurs will buy a striker though this summer to support Kane and it’s down to those three to fight it out to provide another option.”

Could be Spurs’ future

After clinching Etete’s signing on loan, Cheltenham manager Michael Duff said: “He has been out on a successful loan (with Northampton Town). He’s 6 foot 4 inches, runs in behind, can hold it up, we think he’s a good young player, so we’re delighted to have him. He came on the radar in the summer but we weren’t quite sure he was ready for League One.”

A truly wasted talent...

When you look at the 20-year-old’s start for the Robins, it’s clear to see that he hasbags of ability and potential.

In just eight games in League One, he has come up with five goal contributions (two goals and three assists) and started seven times, clearly earning the trust of his manager very quickly after his debut.

Indeed, Gold has even previously hinted about Etete potentially becoming an option who Antonio Conte considers back at Spurs when he returns from his loan spell in the summer.

The journalist said: “He’s one who’s maybe going under the radar slightly, but I think I’ve always kind of felt with him – that his physical build, his stature, he’s a big guy – if he comes back and he’s had a cracking second half of the season at Cheltenham, Conte might have a little look at him in the summer. And he might think, you know what, he’s a different kind of option.”

Either way, Etete appears to be a very exciting prospect for the future.
