There’s no single team in this world right now that doesn’t require a top notch striker, such that they complete their objectives. Talk of any English team especially, and you’ll be surprised to find that almost every single side of the top six needs a quality striker. Take Manchester United, Chelsea, City or Liverpool- they are in need of a proven goal scorer such that they achieve the targets that they had set up before the season began, or even exceed it.
North London rivals Arsenal and Spurs happen to be another two of those sides that have a similar need troubling them. While Arsenal have been crying out for an Olivier Giroud replacement since summer, Spurs are some need a goal scorer who can act as a backup for the on fire Harry Kane. Arsenal’s recent, monotonous and familiar injury crisis is something that has rocked them season after season and the Christmas period is when backups and replacements are needed the most, one position or the other. And the same applies to Spurs, who did sign Clinton N’Jie and Hueng Min Son, who has gained the recognition of being the Asian Footballer of the Year, but neither of them are out and out strikers. And as the Christmas period approaches and so does the Winter transfer window, both clubs need to pull something off, if not anything.
And here are some strikers the North Londoners may look to sign in January:
5. Vincent Aboubakar- FC Porto
The bruiser from Cameroon has certainly come on leaps and bounds since joining Porto and his rise to prominence has been gradual too. But this season is set to be a breakout one for him, with the 23-year-old Porto star grabbing a total of 11 goals in all competitions this campaign.
5 in the Liga Sagres and 3 in the Champions League, Aboubakar is Porto’s leading goal scorer and is set to capture a considerable amount of eye balls. The tall, well-built forward is as good a target man, as he’s a dribbler. Despite of having a big frame, Aboubakar is very good dribbler too- someone with pace to go past defenders with ease. He has all the required attributes to be a successful star in any top premier league club.
