Tottenham must join reported race with bitter rivals for £20m-rated goal-a-game attacker
By Danny Wright
Tottenham winger Heung-min Son has struggled to find his feet this season and looks like he is being slowly phased away from first-team duties by manager Mauricio Pochettino.
Spurs had a decent summer transfer window but still need some more strength in depth, especially in the attacking areas of the squad, to help combat things like a drop in form from what is usually a very reliable player in Son.
The Daily Mail has recently reported that Arsenal are keeping close tabs on PSV attacker Hirving Lozano and Tottenham must join in that race with their bitter North London rivals to try and bolster their offensive options in January.
Lozano, 22, is known for his rapid pace and ability to cut inside from the wide positions and find the net on a regular basis.
He only joined PSV in the summer, but has already scored a goal-a-game in the Eredivisie, with six strikes in six league appearances.

The Daily Mail claims that the Mexico international is valued at £20million and a bid worth that much in January could see PSV let him leave even though he has recently signed for them from Mexican top-flight side Pachuca.
As well as his six goals, Lozano has also supplied four assists in his six league matches, and that is exactly the sort of fresh impetus that Mauricio Pochettino needs in his attack.
Erik Lamela may not be the player that he once was when he finally returns from his long-term spell on the sidelines, Moussa Sissoko seems to play much better in the centre of midfield than out on the wing and Georges-Kevin N’Koudou isn’t anywhere near the first-team.
A winger is a must for Pochettino in January, and Lozano is 100 per cent the man he must try to sign.
