Another day, another striker linked to Tottenham Hotspur and today’s transfer rumour involves Ivory Coast centre forward Seydou Doumbia who currently plays his football in Russia with CSKA Moscow.
Doumbia was with our old adversaries Young Boys where he played for two seasons before travelling to the Russian league in 2010. In fact, his goal scoring record is phenomenal – 50 goals in 64 league matches for the Swiss side and 22 in 35 for CSKA.
Of course, everyone will say that these are weaker leagues but the player may have given a hint that he can cut it at the highest level with two goals in CSKA’s recent Champions’ League tie with Lille.
At 23, he looks a good prospect so expect him to be hailed as the ‘new Drogba’ if he hasn’t been already and with that record, it’s a surprise that he hasn’t been linked more heavily with a move to the Premier League.
