Opinion: Spurs should sign Daichi Kamada instead of Marcel Sabitzer

Throughout the past few months, Tottenham have consistently been linked with RB Leipzig star Marcel Sabitzer.

I, like many Spurs fans, am generally happy with the links and believe that the Austrian would be a good source of goals to take the pressure off Kane and Son.

The 27-year-old scored eight goals and provided four assists for Leipzig last season. However, Sabitzer’s goals are a bit of a false image.

Out of Sabitzer’s eight goals, four were penalties. So, if he were to play with Harry Kane, he could have just a fraction of that tally next season.

That would be four goals and four assists in the Bundesliga, a league that is generally thought to be of worse quality than the Premier League.

For context, Timo Werner scored 28 goals in his final season at RB Leipzig. Then in his first year at Chelsea, the German only scored six.

This is why Spurs should instead consider a move for Eintracht Frankfurt midfielder, Daichi Kamada. The Japanese international registered five goals and 15 assists last season. While he didn’t score many, the 24-year-old set up a whole bunch.

Having a midfielder who can create goals is something that Spurs have missed since the loss of Christian Eriksen. Last season, Harry Kane had to play as the main creative player and the main goal scorer because of the lack of creativity in the team.

Plus, Kamada takes corners and free kicks, another thing that is desperately missed in this Spurs team.

Overall, Kamada is younger, better, and has more potential than Sabitzer. Also, Kamada’s contract expires in the summer of 2023 – in two years – so Spurs would likely be able to get him on a reduced fee.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Well I for one hope for Harry kanes sake he is not at spurs next season. He has given us everything and enic have not recipated. Leave Harry go win something with another team because enic can’t even get a decent manager to come to us. Most embarrassing football team in the world. Shame on enic.
