Spurs eyeing Daichi Kamada in January


Tottenham Hotspur have made Daichi Kamada one of their main targets in January…

What’s the word?

That’s according to German outlet Sport Bild, who claim that Spurs are one of several top teams eyeing a move for the Japan maestro after his impressive season for Eintracht Frankfurt.

His current £33k-per-week contract is set to expire in the summer and whilst the Bundesliga outfit have offered him an extension, he is yet to sign it and that means they risk losing him for nothing at the end of the season.

Despite this, his market value is in the region of €30m (£26m), with the Lilywhites, Borussia Dortmund and other clubs putting out ‘feelers’ for his signature ahead of the winter transfer window.

Would Kamada be a good signing for Spurs?

YES!

NO!

NO!

Better than Malinovskyi

It appears as if Spurs are in the market for a new attacking midfielder, having been linked to an array of names since the summer, including Leicester City and England star James Maddison.

Another player that seems to be in Fabio Paratici’s scope is Atalanta dynamo Ruslan Malinovskyi, who did come close to swapping the Serie A for the Premier League before the start of the season.

However, Kamada appears to be a far greater prospect, not just because he’s a lot younger at 26 years of age.

The Japanese maestro is enjoying a phenomenal season, where he has scored 13 goals and provided three assists across the German top-flight and the Champions League, including a contribution against Tottenham.

As per FBref, Kamada is outranks Malinovskyi for pretty much every key and worthwhile attacking metric, ranging from goal-creating actions (1.12 vs 0.33) per 90 to goals and assists (0.94 vs 0.50) per 90.

The Frankfurt sensation also leads the Ukraine gem for goals per shot on target, passing accuracy, tackles won and success, and minutes played per 90.

His domestic form saw journalist Josh Bunting laud Kamada as an “incredible talent” who is a”joy to watch,” whilst analyst Statman Dave suggested he was Japan’s “bright” spark in Japan’s recent World Cup defeat to Croatia.

As such, Paratici should turn his attention to the 26-year-old heading into January. He’s evidently a far greater attacking threat than Malinovskyi and one that could be available for a bargain given his contractual situation.
