Could Tottenham replace Harry Kane's production with Krzysztof Piatek? | Transfer Talk

  • Published: 09 January 2020
  • ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop, Steve Nicol, Ale Moreno and Julien Laurens dive into Harry Kane's injury which will keep him out until April, compounding Tottenham's problems under Jose Mourinho. Nicol says Tottenham continue to be poor defensive under Mourinho while Moreno says the team's style has gradually changed to reflect Mourinho's later teams at Manchester United. Hislop believes there is little separating Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester United for the fourth spot in the Premier League and that should give Spurs fans hope and Laurens thinks AC Milan's mercurial striker Krzysztof Piatek might not be the answer for Tottenham in the wake of Kane's injury.

      I think the back line looked well in the Liverpool game. It will take the summer to start making a general change.

          Inaki Williams is a good shout as when Kane comes back he play on the wings aswell or even Callum Wilson or Josh King

              Don’t agree with the Gazzaniga comment whatsoever. He’s been class since he stepped in for Lloris.

                    Piatek is a brilliant long term replacement for over rated Kane.

                        Please take piatek away from ac Milan. Please. Please pay our club at least $1 for him. We need to get rid of our failing players and I think he would be better suited to the spurs team and a real manager like mou.

                          They need someone like a young Chicharito, a ST that can poach awesome goals but more importantly starts attacking plays in the box with movement, passes etc.

                          Spurs are completely static during sustained attacks, Kane used to be able to outmuscle defenders in the box but not anymore. So they need speed.

                                                    I watch a lot of Seria A & I have my doubts about Piatek. He’s a medium sized, busy, clever player who is not particularly quick. He’d have to play off somebody and Lorrente has been sold now! What about Giroud? From Seria A, Napoli’s Milik is a better option!

                                                      The defence is the problem, Aurier is a headless chicken when trying to defend, Vertonghen & Alderweireld are past their best and Sanchez still looks raw - no matter who the manager is you have got to have decent players to work with and when it comes to the defence and defensive midfield the players are simply not good enough.

I actually go and i watch milans games and i watch every game.They are practically force starting him in every game and he doesn’t do nothing, can’t dribble, can’t hit the target, passes only backwards and he’s substituted in every game for poor performance. He only plays because they want to get rid off him and get some money.

The front four of Kane, Son, Alli, Moura is what they need plus 2 good MF players. Any game w/o these four + 2 good MFs will be difficult to win. There's really not much that anyone can do about the defense - they are bad.
