Report: Tottenham Hotspur eyeing ‘Maccabi Tel Aviv sensation’

By Eddie Razo -

It wouldn’t be a summer transfer window for Tottenham Hotspur didn’t make a move that allows them to roll the dice on a young player. Last summer, the north London club added Bryan Gil and Pape Matar Sarr. This year, they could be looking at Oscar Gloukh. 

According to Sport5 (via Spurs Web), Tottenham is now leading the race to sign Maccabi Tel Aviv sensation. The report adds that the Israeli club is willing to sell the 18-year-old for a fee of around £6 million. 

The teenager made ten appearances last season, scoring three goals while playing primarily as an attacking midfielder. There’s no question that the player is raw, but perhaps see a talented player and will want to get him at a low price. 

Furthermore, the scenario of buying him and loaning him out for a season wouldn’t be out of the question, much as they did with Sarr, who Tottenham acquired in 2021 but allowed to remain at FC Metz following the transfer. 

The 19-year-old is now with Spurs in South Korea to begin preparations for the upcoming season. Perhaps that’s the future for Gloukh should the Premier League side pursue the player.

Totally agree. We should have kept him, but we have moved on now and I think Doherty offers as much.

…and hopefully a new RWB will offer more.

I’ll add my ‘exactly’ into the mix also! He’s a good lad KWP, but undersized and not a Conte type player, who definitely likes the physical type, with attitude, which is not KWP.

KWP is barely worth half that…. If we signed him then his 19 million market value would soon drop back down to 8 or 9 million again because he would struggle for game time..

30 million could buy or be put towards a far better player.

Doherty is on the pre season tour….. The unwanted players who have been told to find pastures new were left at home.
Winky, Ndombele, LoCelso.
Why would Doherty be in South Korea if he wasn’t in the plans..
Maybe signing Spence would change the situation, but for now it looks like Doherty is staying.

This stuff is mystifying to me.

KWP has 2 goals and 7 assists in 82 matches with Soton. Suddenly revered, international call up, buyback clauses, Yada Yada.

Matt Doherty has 2 goals and 6 assists in 32 matches with Spurs, yet is slated, with some Spurs fans wanting a KWP return.

People love an underdog, a physically limited, height and weight-challenged player who finds a place on a mid table squad through graft and work ethic. Add the ‘one of our own’ factor, and it is suddenly OTT.

Soton is where he fits in.

Now we have a decent midfield KWP may well perform far better than previously.

I see there has been chat that we have a buy back clause for KWP with Southampton at a reported £30 mill.

Doherty has been told to find another club..Spence is Levy’s play thing a transfer we will either complete on the last day or we won’t allowing Don Daniel to wear his tough and shrewd hat or his pulled it out the hat hat .

If the boy is going to potentially become a star for Israel, bearing in mind they did reach the final of the Euro U-19’s, you would imagine, given the commercial/marketing potential, that Levy will be all over it!

Personally I like the idea of longer term investment in the spirit of nothing ventured nothing gained. Same could be said of the more mature signings to some extent. Begs the question what is the real difference? Proven track record in a tough league is an obvious indication of less risk or more probability of successful accomodation. On a slightly different, but related matter, why are we still bothering with Spence? Isn’t it time to walk away after 3-4 weeks of negotiations? Is he less risk, more likely to be successful than Emerson?
