Tottenham Hotspur submit formal offer to sign Takehide Kubo

14 May 2024 - 6:24 pm

Following a four-game losing streak in the Premier League, the Lilywhites returned to winning ways with a win over Burnley last weekend. Angie Postkoglu’s side are currently fifth with 63 points from 36 games, five points adrift of fourth-placed Aston Villa with a game in hand.

Therefore, Tottenham must win the remaining two games to keep their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League alive.

However, it won’t be easy to achieve that as their next game tonight is against Manchester City and beating them won’t be easy, especially considering they are currently in contention for the title and Guardiola’s side have proven in the past At this point they have become almost unbeatable at this stage of the season.

With the 2023/24 season not yet over, the north London club appear to have begun planning their summer operations to strengthen the squad and continue to rebuild under the guidance of Postkoglu.

It has been suggested that Tottenham would be willing to strengthen the backline and cabin this summer, but signing a new winger to strengthen the frontline also appears to be on Postkoglu’s wish list.

Kubo to Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham are “determined” to strengthen their attacking squad this summer and are focused on signing Takehide Kubo from Real Sociedad, according to a report from Fichajes.

The report also claims that Tottenham have stepped up their efforts to complete the deal and have made an offer of £43 million. Spanish media say Hidetoshi Kubo has a £51m release clause in his current contract, but Real Sociedad may accept an offer from the Lilywhites.

Kubo is a talented player with huge potential, so he could be a shrewd signing if Tottenham Hotspur purchase him. However, with Postkoglu’s penchant for high-pressing tactics, questions remain over whether the Japan international has the physical attributes needed to thrive in the Australian coach’s style of football.

Therefore, Tottenham would be wise to explore other options to strengthen their forward line in the upcoming window. However, it will be interesting to see if the north London club end up signing the left-footed striker in the off-season.
