Tottenham Hotspurs have been decimated with injuries and will unfortunately lose their top goal scorer, Heung Min-Son. Son is going to play with his country, South Korea, in the AFC Asian Cup. The competition starts on January 12 and ends on the 10th of February. If South Korea makes a deep run in the competition, by reaching the final, Son could miss up to five games in all competitions with Spurs.

Spurs require another attacker who can contribute with goals quickly. Son has 12 goals in the Premier League, and their remaining attackers are Richarlison, Johnson, and Kuluveski. Their summer signing Alejo Veliz was injured after the Brighton defeat a few weeks back, which has Spurs desperate to add another player to the attack.

With James Maddison nearing his return to the pitch, Tottenham will need an attacker to pounce on great goal-scoring chances and give variety in the attack. Spurs went looking at the market for potential strikers, and they landed a player with experience in the Premier League and a proven goal scorer at the top level!

Who is the 17 million pound striker arriving in Tottenham?

Tottenham Hotspurs have signed 17 million pound striker Timo Werner on a 6-month loan from RB Leipzig. Timo Werner was getting little to no game time in Germany, so the move made sense for both parties to complete.

Tottenham Hotspurs have not announced the signing, but reliable source and football journalist Fabrizio Romano confirmed the deal was to be completed. The German striker is worth 17 million pounds and has a buy option clause of 17 million pounds if Spurs decide to sign him permanently.

Werner has two goals in 8 appearances for RB Leipzig this season and can play as a lone striker or a left winger, similar to Son's positions for Spurs. Many Premier League fans would remember his time at Chelsea, and he averaged a goal contribution every 137 minutes for Chelsea.

With Son returning in February, many Tottenham fans look forward to watching Werner and Son play together on the pitch. In the meantime, Werner will look to settle into the squad quickly with his new teammates. Werner`s most notable characteristic is his pace. The team will look stronger once all Spurs players are available, and Ange Postecoglou will look to make the most of his new attack.
