The Lilywhites may be in position to obtain the ideal Harry Kane heir.
Ange Postecoglou has led Tottenham Hotspur to a successful start, but he won’t be content to sit back and enjoy his success.
Back-to-backThe Australian, who urged his supporters to use their imaginations to the fullest after their promising start to the new season, said of Premier League Manager of the Month awards: “No, no, no, just let them go and enjoy themselves. I’ve said it before, but it’s not my job to pop people’s balloons. The charm of being a supporter is letting them get carried away and thrilled.
James Maddison and Micky van de Ven, who collaborated at both ends of the field to help propel their run to the top of the league, are largely responsible for their great form, which is in large part attributable to the moves made over a historic summer of transfer activity.
With one in-form ace already on the Australian’s want list, it appears that they may already be looking ahead to January.
Who could Spurs sign in January?
The former Leicester City creator cost £40 million, while the Dutch defender cost Wolfsburg an additional £43 million, making it evident that this regime may be more free-spending in an effort by Daniel Levy to give them the boost they need to become contenders once more.
Therefore, even if Serhou Guirassy has only recently moved, potentially inflating his potential price tag even further, if that is what Postecoglou wants, there is a good chance they will acquire him.
At least that is what writer Dean Jones anticipates after saying on the Ranks FC Podcast earlier in the week that the Lilywhites were keeping an eye on the Stuttgart striker whose £17 million release clause will become activated in the coming summer.
While that accomplishment would be remarkable on its own, it is made much more possible by the £100 million they got after the fact for the sale of Harry Kane last summer, money that was never used. It will take a truly exceptional football player to possibly succeed the England international, but given the 27-year-old’s scorching form in Germany, there is every chance that he may pull it off should he carry over his success to England.
What did Harry Kane achieve at Spurs?
It is always worth mentioning how excellent the 30-year-old was for Lilywhites, having broken through the academy as an unheard-of teenager, even though his departure is still recent in memory.
The 86-cap superstar eventually rose to become the club’s and his country’s all-time best scorer, overcoming legends like Jimmy Greaves and Wayne Rooney in the process. Few could have possibly guessed the heights that the player would reach.
He left north London with a mouthwatering total of 278 goals and 64 assists, and he actually reached double digits in the Premier League for nine straight seasons.
Thus, it should not be surprising that before quitting, analyst Jamie O’Hara gushed over him, telling talkSPORT (23 March, 10.30 pm), “I’ll put it out there; I think he is the greatest striker English football has ever produced.”
In the game of football, he is unbeatable. Harry Kane’s accomplishments for Tottenham, for England, and in the Premier League will live on in your memory forever.
He was both a creative and a goal-scoring leader, but neither of those skills is necessary now. Maddison has more than sufficed for the former, but Guirassy may now fill the latter.
Who is Serhou Guirassy?
The France-born finisher, who has 13 Bundesliga goals after just seven games, is the only player in Europe’s top five leagues with more league goals than him.
That is the standard being upheld by the ruthless attacker, who has unavoidably become a target for praise following such a spellbinding start to the season that is exactly replicating Spurs’. Serhou is a young player and he also makes blunders on the pitch, as Amiens SC coach Luke Elsner previously observed. But he has proven to be so essential in numerous games.

“I really appreciated the fact that he didn’t give up even if his match didn’t turn out the way he had hoped. When he lost the ball, he made defensive attempts and tried to make up for it. Although he doesn’t always succeed, his mentality cannot be questioned.
Postecoglou would appreciate that kind of approach since he would love to add such a hot forward to combine with Maddison.
The 26-year-old wizard, who only arrived to north London in the summer, has adapted to his new surroundings like a duck to water. According to Sofascore, he has contributed to seven goals in just eight games, which is a commendable return. He also averages 3.3 critical passes and 2.4 ball recoveries per game.
Therefore, it should not be surprising that Joe Cole, a former Chelsea star, attempted to praise such excellent business, saying, “The more I think about it, he could be the best signing of the summer. I’m extremely happy for him, especially after seeing Ange play. Look at the players who have held that position for Spurs, including [Luka] Modric, [Paul Gascoigne], and Glenn Hoddle. Giving him the VC demonstrates how perceptive and witty Ange is. James is a boss.
Although he is undoubtedly the Premier League’s best player right now, Guirassy is easily outperforming him thanks to his 2.1 critical passes per game and an incredible goal-conversion percentage of 42%, according to Sofascore.
The international player for Guinea looks to possess both the skill and the inventiveness that earned Kane praise. He might not only assist in converting the many scoring possibilities that Maddison creates, but also provide the midfielder with some extra scoring chances.
The Stuttgart star might provide them the extra boost they need to get across the finish line and realize the ambitious goals Postecoglou wants his supporters to hold onto.
