Tottenham Hotspur may be taking a page from Manchester United’s rebuilding playbook. That is, buy the Dutch league champions outright and transplant them.
United had their worst season in club history in 2021-2022. United hired Dutch league champions Ajax’s head coach, Erik Tenhague. He brought with him two key players in Anthony Martial and Lisandro Martinez. Mourinho has revitalized United. United topped the Carabao Cup and won their first major trophy in six years.
Tottenham slumped to eighth place this year. Without Harry Kane and Son Heung-min, the team has been criticized as a mid-table squad and even without Kane, a team that would struggle in the relegation zone. The search for a new manager has been on for two months. Arne Schott of Feyenoord, the Dutch league champions this season, has emerged as a leading candidate.
The Express, a British media outlet, reported on May 25 that “Tottenham are close to appointing Slott. Spurs will try to emulate what Manchester United did with Ajax by bringing in two more Feyenoord stars if they sign Slott.
Feyenoord’s available options for Dario are striker Jimenez Santiago, attacking midfielder Orken Koku and central defender David Hantzko.메이저사이트
If Tottenham were to copy United and Tenzing, Santiago and Hantsko would be their top choices.
The Express says: ‘Tottenham will mirror United’s transfer market direction last summer. With a slot appointment imminent, they are interested in bringing in Jimenez and Kokou together. Jimenez has scored 15 goals in 31 games in the Dutch league this year. Kokou is a product of Feyenoord’s academy.
However, United spent over £100 million to sign Anthony and Martinez. For Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy, who has a reputation for being a spendthrift, £100 million is a lot of money. Of course, the math says that if they sell Kane, they could pocket £100 million in transfer fees.
Jimenez and Koku are also reportedly being watched by other clubs. According to the Express, they face competition from Aston Villa, Brentford, Brighton, and Crystal Palace.
