Tottenham are reportedly set to sell Roberto Firmino

Tottenham are reportedly set to sell center-forward Roberto Firmino to a Saudi Arabian club.

‘Tottenham manager Enzi Postecoglou is planning to overhaul his squad this summer,’ the Daily Mail reported on Wednesday (KST). Saudi Arabia’s Al-Hilal are in the running to sign Hicharisson,” the paper reported.

The Daily Mail reports that ‘Al-Hilal are looking for a replacement for Neymar. Tottenham enquired about him in January. Alhilal are optimistic of signing him.

The Daily Mail added: ‘The player still has three years left on his Tottenham contract. No formal approach has been made, but Tottenham are on the verge of a major overhaul and will listen to Alhilal’s offer.

The Frenchman’s season ended prematurely after he suffered a calf injury. He was also left out of Brazil’s roster for the Copa America on Monday.

He joined the Premier League in 2018 after signing for Everton. He scored 43 goals in four seasons with the Toffees, proving his potential.

Tottenham acquired him for £60 million ahead of the 2022-2023 season. Spurs spent a lot of money.

In his first season, he scored just one Premier League goal.

With Harry Kane’s departure to Bayern Munich last summer, it looked like he would get a lot more playing time. However, a combination of injuries and inconsistency prevented him from making an impact.

Instead, Son Heung-min moved from the flanks to the center and took over the role.

However, he has shown improvement this season, 토토사이트 scoring 11 goals and providing four assists in 28 games. He had a sparkling run from Round 16 to Round 23, when he scored nine goals in a row.

However, his ups and downs and frequent injuries have prevented him from being a reliable first-choice striker.

Postecoglou announced a major overhaul this summer.

Postecoglou emphasized that Spurs still have a long way to go and that they need to improve their strength and conditioning.

“He wants everyone to buy into his style, and to do that, he said, he has to get rid of good players,” explained The Athletic.

In a recent interview, Postecoglou admitted that he struggles with the fact that “the mainstream of the squad doesn’t seem to understand my philosophy of soccer.”

“I have to change this team. I have to build a team that can play Tottenham football. To do that, I need the transfer market. I can’t keep everyone and bring in new players,” he said, implying that someone has to go.

“So sometimes you have to let someone go, even if you say ‘he’s a good player’. That’s how things can change,” he emphasized.

According to The Athletic, only Son Heung-min and Brennan Johnson are safe in the Tottenham attacking lineup.

Ivan Toney (Brentford) and Santiago Jimenez (Feyenoord) have been touted as possible targets for Spurs’ new striker.

Meanwhile, his current market value has dropped to around £35 million ($60 million), according to TransferMarkt. Tottenham are in danger of not even qualifying.
