Tottenham Hotspur are said to one of the clubs who are closely monitoring Robert Skov, ahead of making a potential move for the winger in summer.
According to Sky Sports, West Ham and Wolves are also interested in acquiring the winger’s services.
Given the lack of activity in the last two transfer windows, the club is likely to invest fairly heavily in the squad this summer, and one of the positions that Pochettino is said to be looking to strengthen is the wide areas as Spurs have been linked with the likes of Jarrod Bowen and Malcom recently.
Skov, who is having a stellar season in the Danish Superliga is the latest wide man to be linked to the club. Here’s all you need to know about the winger:
Full Name: Robert Skov
Club: FC Copenhagen
Position: Wing Forward
Playing Style: Skov is a left footed player who likes to play in the right-hand side of a front three, and scores most of his goals by cutting in from the left. He likes taking players on and making space to get his shots away.
Strengths: Shooting, dead balls
Weaknesses: Sometimes predictable, gets caught in possession fairly regularly.
Highlights of His Career: Skov is setting the Danish Superliga alight this season with his performances having scored 24 times assisted 6 goals in all competitions so far this season. The 22-year-old leads the race for the golden boot in the league having scored 7 goals more than his closest competitor.
His goal to game ratio is quite stunning considering the fact that he is not an out and out striker. While Skov was part of the preliminary Denmark squad announced for the World Cup last summer, he failed to make the final 23. That failure seems to have spurred him on as he has proven that he is undoubtedly one of the most talented players in Danish football.
Rumor rating: B+
Skov is certainly likely to be in within Tottenham’ price range, and given that the other clubs being linked with him are mostly mid-table teams, Spurs will be able to get their man if they pursue him.
However, there are question marks over whether or not he can make the required step up to succeed in the Premier League as the 22-year-old hasn’t played any football outside Denmark in his career.
