Spurs eyeing swoop to sign Randal Kolo Muani from Frankfurt

An update has emerged on Tottenham Hotspur and their interest in Randal Kolo Muani ahead of next summer’s transfer window…

What’s the talk?

According to Foot Mercato, Spurs are one of two Premier League sides eyeing up a potential swoop to sign the French international at the end of the season.

The report claims that fellow English outfit Liverpool are also in the running and that Fabio Paratici wanted to snap him up last summer, only for Eintracht Frankfurt to win the race.

Paratici is now hoping to have more success this time around and Sport Bild (via Foot Mercato), recently claimed that it will cost at least €60m (£52m) to prise him away.

A big Moura upgrade

The Spurs sporting director could land manager Antonio Conte an upgrade on Lucas Moura by securing a deal to sign Muani, whether that comes in January or next summer.

Should Spurs sell Moura in January?

YES!

YES!

NO!

NO!

Tottenham’s Brazilian winger has struggled in front of goal under the Italian head coach and has not done enough to prove that his long-term future should be at the club.

Moura has scored two goals and provided six assists in 42 Premier League appearances since the start of last season, whilst scoring once and assisting two in eight European matches and finding the back of the net three times in domestic cup competitions.

Muani, meanwhile, has plundered eight goals and 11 assists in 23 outings for the Bundesliga side in all competitions since making the move from FC Nantes.

Frankfurt board member Markus Krosche previously hailed the gem’s talents, saying: 

“Randal Kolo Muani brings attributes that we need for our game. He’s fast, robust and a very good finisher.

“He’s also tactically versatile and can play in several different systems, which will give us even more flexibility next season. Randal’s potential has attracted the interest of many clubs. We’re very pleased that he wants to take his next steps at Eintracht Frankfurt.”

The 24-year-old dynamo’s impressive form for the German side comes off the back of him producing 13 goals and seven assists in 41 matches for Nantes last season, which means he has been directly involved in 39 goals at club level since the start of last term – 25 more than Moura.

Therefore, the French international, who is currently in Qatar with his country at the World Cup, would be a big upgrade on the former Paris Saint-Germain dud.

His statistics indicate that he would offer far more than the 30-year-old at the top end of the pitch, as they both play in a variety of attacking positions, both in terms of scoring and creating goals, which is why he would improve Conte’s squad.
