£8 million for no end product

The three way race, or at least three way between Tottenham, Liverpool and Arsenal to sign Alvaro Vadillo is said to be hotting up.

£8 million for no end product


In that race we must be behind in the pecking order to both the other clubs who have the Champions League carrot to dangle. Spurs have no manager yet it is said to be Daniel Levy who is going after the 19 year-old Real Betis winger.

We have looked at him before and watched him this season, a season in which his side have finished bottom of the table. Our recruitment committee that flopped last summer bringing in a host of what proved to be average players or at least mentally average players.

In 13 games he scored no goals and 2 assists, hardly stats that stand out and shout buy me. In 53 games he has 1 goal to his name and that was in the Europa League. In 38 league games he has no goals and 4 assists.

What Vadilio does have is potential, he has pace, vision and he can dribble but as yet there is very little end product, sounds like another Andros Townsend.

His buy out clause is £16.5 million but the paper talk is of an £8 million bid being prepared by Levy. Why when we have just bought Nacer Chadli and Erik Lamela. We already have Aaron Lennon and Townsend with Alex Pritchard coming through.

Admittedly we are weak on the left and need a left sided wide man but is this really the answer, another youngster with potential? Presumably we are buying to develop him to either sell or play Premier League but is he going to get any game time?

At the moment he is playing regular football which will need to continue if he is to develop, he won't get that with us and £8 million seems a lot for a development player. even if he is a Spanish youth international.




It's not a deal that is going to set the pulses racing.
