Clinton Njie can play winger or striker effectively and is drawing comparisons to the king of scoring. Is Clinton really the next Cristiano Ronaldo?
Tottenham Hotspur may have the best young striker in the Premier League with Harry Kane, but they may have found his perfect partner with Lyon’s Clinton Njie.
According to the Metro, the Spurs have launched a £7 million bid for the 21-year-old Cameroonian striker. However, one of the Metro’s trusted sources was quick to note that Lyon will not part with Clinton so easily and the club will likely have to pay a lot more to seal a transfer.
The Metro noted that Clinton has earned comparisons to Real Madrid megastar Cristiano Ronaldo in terms of physical ability – though his on-the-field production doesn’t necessarily match the comparison. Clinton has 23 goals in 96 senior appearances for Lyon B and Lyon along with 6 goals in 11 appearances for the Cameroon national team.
The demand for Clinton is expected to remain high and Tottenham appear fairly dead-set on bringing him to White Hart Lane this summer.
