Journalist Tony Cascarino has harshly criticised January signing Timo Werner for his performances since joining the club.
Spurs signed the former Chelsea man on loan from RB Leipzig in early January with an option to make the move permanent for £15m.
Since coming in, he has played 4 games and assisted two goals in the Premier League. He has looked sharp and some of his movements have been fantastic.
He was signed on a short-term deal given the lack of options in attack on the left-side at that time.
But with Richarlison now in hot form playing as a centre-forward, and Heung-min Son back from Asian Cup, he might see his role as a first-team started reduced to a squad player.
Son is now expected to start on the left of the front three with Richarlison playing upfront and Kulusevski playing on the right.
Despite impressing Ange Postecoglou and the fans in his short time, he is still to win over some pundits like Cascarino.
Tony Cascarino does not believe that Tottenham need to think too long about whether to keep Werner beyond this season.
Speaking on talkSport, he said:
“I want to talk about one player in particular. And now, Tottenham have won the game. He made some substitutions. Heung-min Son came on for Timo Werner. Timo Werner now has played five games. It’s a short period. Is he any different from the player I saw at Chelsea? Slightly. He’s worse.”
The criticism is very harsh from the pundit considering he has only been at the club for over a month and played only 5 games across all competitions. And even in those 5 games, has contributed to two goals.
We are not sure whether Spurs will make the move permanent in the summer but it will be a low risk signing considering the fee, specially if he ends up putting in strong performances between now and the summer.
