Spurs are the latest club to be linked with Manchester City’s 19 year old Swedish striker John Guidetti who has been hitting the headlines whilst on loan with Dutch club Feyenoord. The striker had an unremarkable career before heading for Holland and this had previously included a forgettable loan stint with Burnley.
However, all that changed this season and in his first 16 league games in Rotterdam, Guidetti hammered home 18 goals including three hat tricks. Naturally that has brought him to the attention of a lot of clubs and the player himself is not particularly warm about a return to city.
“I have not yet talked with Manchester City about my future. But the issue is very simple: I want to play, and if Manchester City see me as a fourth or fifth choice, I’d rather go to a club where I can play,” he said.
“What league does not matter, what counts for me is to play.
“It would be painful for me to move from a place where I always play such as Feyenoord, to where I might constantly be on the bench.”
Whether the Spurs link is a case of joining up the dots is unclear but Guidetti is certain to feature highly in summer transfer news.
Meanwhile, the performances of his Manchester City colleague Emmanuel Adebayor have come increasingly under the spotlight and it’s noticeable how quiet the rumours are surrounding a permanent deal at White Hart Lane.
The focus seems to have shifted to the likes of Loic Remy and Olivier Giroud and maybe even the luxuriously named John Alberto Fernando Andres Luigi Olof Guidetti could be added into the mix.
