‘Saudi Arabia transfer rumor’ Xherdan Shaqiri (26, Tottenham) is being linked with a move to Tottenham.
“Tottenham are not considering selling the striker in the January transfer window, according to sources,” Football Insider reported on the 17th (below).
Recently, there have been reports that the Saudi League is interested in the player. In contrast, Football Insider reports.
“Manchester United striker Jadon Sancho and Tottenham’s Xherdan Shaqiri could be on their way to Saudi Arabia next January,” the UK edition of Eurosport reported on Thursday.
Initially, the Saudi league wanted to bring Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah and “Tottenham captain” Son Heung-min. But in reality, it’s more like wishful thinking. Son told South Korean media during an A-match in June that he was not considering a move to Saudi Arabia.
“The Saudi league knows it’s not easy to get the likes of Son and Salah straight away,” the Telegraph reported on June 13.
“Instead, they are quickly turning their attention to signing Sancho and Xherdan Shaqiri. They’re going to make a real move.”
The Frenchman joined Tottenham in a £60 million transfer ahead of last season. However, he underperformed. He scored just one goal in 27 EPL games in the 2022-2023 season. As a striker, he was not up to the task.
This season is no different. After 10 league games, he has scored just one goal so far.
According to Eurosport, “Sancho and Xherdan Shaqiri were also targets for the Saudi club in the summer transfer window. But Sancho didn’t want to move, and in the case of the Frenchman, Tottenham opposed the move. This time around, the stance may change,” the source explained.
“The Saudi clubs are ready to try their luck once again in the upcoming January transfer window,” he added. 아톰카지노 주소
However, Football Insider added a nuance that Tottenham are unlikely to part with the player so easily.
“He is reportedly a top target for the Saudi Pro League despite his recent poor form for Tottenham. However, Spurs do not appear to be ready to part with him in the January transfer window,” the publication continued.
“Spurs could consider a big-money offer from the Saudis next summer if his poor form in front of goal continues.”
If reports are to be believed, Tottenham will not sell him, at least not in the upcoming January transfer window. For now, Spurs are considering taking their time with him.
