Frankfurt star dubbed ‘new Salah’ could be the missing piece for Tottenham’s top-four tilt

Tottenham Hotspur have been repeatedly urged to sign Eintracht Frankfurt striker Omar Marmoush, and this summer is a perfect opportunity to get that deal over the line.

The 25-year-old has been a standout performer for Frankfurt this season and is already tipped to earn a big money move away from Deutsche Bank Park despite only joining the club last summer.

A number of European teams are monitoring his situation, and there could be a bidding war for the Egyptian forward at the end of the season.

Frankfurt wouldn’t stand in his way if a top European club comes knocking on their door, but the Germans are likely to demand a staggering fee to let him go this summer.

Tottenham are one of several teams weighing up a move for Marmoush, with Ange Postecoglou keen to bolster his attacking options ahead of next season.

However, the north Londoners must be wary of Liverpool, who have a similar objective this summer, especially with Mohamed Salah’s future in doubt.

Spurs must beat Liverpool to Marmoush

According to German news outlet Bild, Liverpool are preparing to launch a move for Marmoush when the transfer window opens. 

The Egyptian has been likened to his international teammate Salah, who faces an uncertain future at Anfield amid serious interest from Saudi Arabia.

Liverpool could target Marmoush to replace his countryman this summer, but Spurs must move fast and beat them to the punch.

The striker has been in sensational form for Frankfurt, notching 16 goals and six assists in 39 appearances across all competitions.

His 11 Bundesliga goals has been key to Frankfurt’s push for a place in the Europa League, while he has also created six big chances thus far, averaging 1.4 key passes per match.

Marmoush has been consistent for Frankfurt this season, boasting a 7.23 average match rating and would be a sensational addition for Spurs this summer.

It will take at least £50 million to lure him away from Frankfurt, but his goalscoring prowess suggests he could be a value-for-money signing. 

He could also be the missing piece in Tottenham’s top-four tilt and would take some of the goalscoring burden off the shoulders of Spurs skipper Son Heung-Min.
