Tottenham Hotspur are now ready to sign Gents striker Gift Orban amid fears another club could soon decide to go for him.
Gift Orban is emerging as a top target for Tottenham Hotspur in the final weeks of the summer transfer window.
This is according to Alasdair Gold from Football London, who spoke on YouTube about everything Tottenham.
Gold suggests there is a ‘real realization’ at Tottenham that they must now choose Orban.
Gold admits Orban is raw and may not be fully fit for the Premier League but his potential is huge.
It means Tottenham believe other clubs could buy Orban and support his potential.
Spurs don’t want to miss out on that and expect to initiate a move for Orban before the summer transfer deadline.
Rather than opting for a top striker to replace Harry Kane, Tottenham could opt for Orban instead and hope to develop him into a superstar.
“Gift Orban, we know they like it…he’s 21 years old, he can play through the middle, he can play down the touchline, he can play as a support forward, he’s already very, very talented and productive,” said Gold. “Of course it’s the Belgian league and you have to stay calm. Certainly there are people covering the Belgian league who have said to me: ‘He’s very, very good but very raw, maybe he’s not ready to be a regular in the Premier League but he could definitely make a difference “So maybe hold that back a little considering he’s an absolute sensation.”
“I can imagine that Spurs will try to do something with him. I think there’s a real realization that if maybe they don’t do that now, others will step in and get him right away,” he added.
Who is Tottenham Hotspur’s target Gift Orban?
Orban has been on an incredible rise lately.
The 21-year-old played for Bison FC in his native Nigeria before successfully completing a trial with Norwegian club Stabaek.
Orban scored 19 goals in 24 games for Stabaek, securing a major move to Belgium for Gent in January this year.
The goals kept flowing; Orban has now scored 25 goals in 26 games for Gent and is a goalscoring sensation.
Orban even managed a hat-trick in four minutes against Istanbul Basaksehir in last season’s Europa Conference League to proclaim himself a star.
Orban still has work to do; As a professional player, he has only played 50 games in Europe, which is quite a few for a 21-year-old in modern football.
Still, Orban has scored 44 goals in that time and all indications are that glory is yet to come.
Tottenham are well aware of this and are now planning to switch for Orban in the coming weeks after losing star striker Kane to Bayern Munich.
