Tottenham is aiming for Harvey Barnes (25, Leicester).
Barnes is a fast wing forward from England. Barnes, who excels in dribbling, shakes the opponent’s defense by penetrating. He also has a strong shooting ability based on elaborate kicks, and exerts influence with crosses ㅋㅋㅋ벳and key passes.
Born at Leicester youth, Barnes made his first-team debut in the 2017-18 season. Barnes, who gradually increased his playing time, took the starting position with 6 goals in 36 matches in the 2019-20 season. Barnes, who has grown into a key resource, led Leicester’s attack this season by scoring 10 goals in 30 league games.
In the midst of this, Tottenham are paying attention to Barnes. Britain’s ‘The Boot Room’ said on the 5th (Korean time), “Tottenham is interested in Vans in the summer transfer market. Barnes plays on the left, but can also play on the right. Tottenham’s attacking quality definitely needs improvement. “He could be a new offensive resource,” Barnes explained.
As explained by the media, Tottenham’s attack this season lacks sharpness. Unlike Harry Kane, who has been consistently active, Son Heung-min and Dejan Klusevski showed ups and downs. Also, Richarlison, who recorded a transfer fee of 60 million pounds (approximately 100 billion won), has only one league goal. Arnaut Danjuma, which was rented in the winter, is also in need of reinforcement as there is no particular activity.
Barnes once mentioned Son Heung-min in an interview after last season. Barnes said, “Son Heung-min and Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) are the best players to penetrate the back space and create scoring opportunities. I am learning how to play by watching them.” The media explained that Barnes is worth £60m.
