Tottenham Looking at 93-Goal Brazilian Forward to Transform Attack Post Harry Kane Era

Tottenham Hotspur are thinking about making a move to sign Flamengo striker Pedro, claims The Independent. They have placed him on their list of several forward options to choose form in case they need to sign an immediate replacement for Harry Kane.

It’s stated that the future of the England captain at Spurs remains ‘50/50’ and there is a strong chance that he leaves soon. Bayern Munich believe that they have everything in place to make the signing apart from a final agreement with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy over the transfer fee that needs to be made for the deal to go through.

Amid uncertainty over their star striker’s future, the North London side are keeping their options open when it comes to his possible replacements. Spurs feel that Pedro is ready to excel in the Premier League despite his shaky past in Europe with Fiorentina, whom he failed to impress for in his one season in Serie A.

The 26-year-old Brazilian has since gone on to excel for Flamengo in the Brazil Serie A, and attracted interest from a number of clubs. A possible issue for Spurs is that they will need to pay his release clause to sign the striker and the fee is ‘very high’ at around £51.9 million.

That is because Pedro signed a new long-term contract with the Brazil side earlier this year in January, with the new deal running up till 2027. Independent claims that Spurs have already spoken to the 26-year-old’s agents about a possible move to alert them over their interest, but are yet to offer him a contract.

In fact, they haven’t officially approached Flamengo about a potential transfer yet and are probably waiting to see what happens with Kane before pulling the trigger on this. Pedro has received a lot of praise over the last year or so.

Flamengo manager Jorge Sampaoli recently praised his ‘technical ability’ and ability to add more tactical aspects to his game, including helping teammates find more empty spaces.

The Brazilian striker has scored 93 goals in 190 appearances for Flamengo since joining them in 2020, showing he has the capability of scoring a lot of goals upon receiving proper service.
