Dominik Szoboszlai – Attacking Midfielder

Dominik Szoloszlai is a Hungarian attacking midfielder who has been at RB Salzburg for the last few seasons and now at age 20 is really starting to turn some heads. Purchased in 2017-18 for only about $550 US dollars from FC Liefering, Szolszlai has really come on for Salzburg in Austria. A driving creative force Dominik has 33 assists and 22 goals in his 74 games for Salzburg. With numbers like that, Tottenham are one of several teams inquiring about his availability according to

In 13 games with nine assists and five goals – Harry Kane like numbers – in just 944 minutes this season, the young attacker is averaging a goal or assist every 67 minutes. Of course, there is a big difference between the Austrian Bundesliga and the Premiere League but sometimes talent transcends competition. As an example, four of his five goals have come in Champions League play, with two in the Group Stages already and two during the qualifying round.

According to Szoboszlai is now valued at some 27.5 million US dollars, a rather sizable return on the initial investment of just over a half million. This means it is likely Salzburg will want to cash in on Szoboszlai as the Hungarian looks to move to the next level. Like Milenkovic, the price and age here are rather good for Spurs, although the competition is questionable. That said, Szoboszlai is a name we will want to remember.

Jack Grealish – Attacking Midfielder

Folks may have seen this past week some comments from Jack Grealish about playing with Harry Kane and you can imagine Kane enjoys a player like Grealish who can find anyone just about anywhere on the pitch. That said, the idea of Jack Grealish coming to Spurs is probably more of a pipe dream than it is based in any kind of reality.

Do not get me wrong, I would love to see Grealish come to Spurs and compete for that #10 role pushing Ndombele and others to continue to up their games. However, this is probably unlikely to happen. Daniel Levy missed the real opportunity a couple years ago before Aston Villa were taken over and Grealish could be afforded.

At this point not only can Villa afford Grealish, but they can also afford to surround him with the talent needed to allow the team to compete on a weekly basis. Given he is basically one of their own, the idea of Grealish leaving just when things are starting to come together seems silly.

That is why when rumors like the one from Football Insider come up, they really are just that complete rumors. Yes, lots of top teams will be interested in Jack Grealish, that does not mean Villa will be interested in trading in on their superstar and prized asset. Ultimately, until we hear Jack Grealish say he wants to come to Tottenham and turns in a transfer request, we can just keep dreaming on this one.

What do you all think, who should Spurs be looking at for creativity and more defensive stability? Who else do you want to hear about, would Grealish ever be realistic?
