Tottenham Hotspur seems to be looking for a ‘lottery’ again. It targeted young prospects with high cost-effectiveness, rather than a proven sense of immediate power.

The British media ‘Express’ reported on the 13th (Korean time) that ‘Tottenham are struggling to recruit a teenager from the Championship (second division) with a price tag of 25 million pounds (about 38 billion won)’.

The main character is English midfielder Alex Scott of Bristol City. Bristol is 19th in the Second Division with 29 points from 26 matches. Scott was born on August 21, 2003 and is still 19 years old.

The Express said ‘Tottenham are looking for a creative midfielder. Currently, Pierre-Emile Hoivier, Rodrigo Bentancur, Yves Bisuma and Oliver Skip in midfield lack that ability in the final third. Scott has a sparkling talent,’ he explained why Tottenham are interested in Scott.

Tottenham manager Antonio Conte also acknowledged the limitations, saying, “There is no player in the midfield who can play creatively.”

Conte is a specialist in the 3-4-3 formation that actively utilizes wingbacks. His left and right wingbacks move widely up and down, focusing on the flanks. Threatening scenes often appear during counterattacks using speed.

On the other hand, he struggles a lot against opponents who drop the line and focus on defense. Because the midfield is not thick. At least, the resources he currently has are a fighter type, not a playmaker style. In most cases, center forward Harry Kane can’t do anything unless he comes down to the second line and solves the game. 슬롯사이트

For this reason, Tottenham desperately wants a No. 10 type attacking midfielder.

However, Scott is a promising prospect who has not been verified at all. He has been through England’s national team for each age group, but it is unclear whether he will continue to grow even after coming to the Premier League. It is too relaxed to aim for a player like this in the January transfer market, when reinforcements are urgently needed.

Conte also wants a sense of power immediately rather than a cost-effective prospect. Conte said this was difficult, saying Tottenham are saving money on rain against rival clubs. “We have to fight clubs that are investing £200m, £300m. We respect them, but at the same time don’t expect too much of us,” Conte said.
