Tottenham, Leeds target Khvicha Kvaratskhelia to bring Prem into the switch after a ‘great’ performance

Two former players have hailed Napoli star Khvicha Kvaratskhelia after his superb performance against Liverpool, with one backing his move to the Premier League.

Kvaratskhelia spent time at Russian clubs Lokomotiv Moscow and Rubin Kazan before joining Napoli in July. acc transfer marketThey spent £9million to bring him to Italy.

And this transfer looks like a theft. The left winger got off to a great start at Napoli and has been compared to one of the greatest players of all time – and club icon – Diego Maradona.

Kvaratskhelia last played 57 minutes 4-1 against Liverpoolhelped Napoli’s Champions League group campaign get off to a flying start.

He caused problems for Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez all night and chimed in with an assist for his team. Kvaratskhelia sped past Alexander-Arnold before holding Gomez in the box. He then selected Giovanni Simeone and allowed the striker to score Napoli’s third goal with a simple tap.

Kvaratskhelia have been linked with several Premier League teams over the past 10 months. TottenhamLeeds, Arsenal and West Ham have all explored the possibility of buying him, according to various reports.

“I’m disappointed that Kvaratskhelia left because I enjoyed his performance,” Woodgate said (via HITC).

“His pace, his power, he wants to beat his man. He’s another player set to head to the Premier League in the next few years. He was absolutely gorgeous, Kvaratskhelia.”

Prem legend Thierry Henry also praised the 21-year-old attacker. “He played a great game. “The way he was pushing [on Liverpool]. The desire he had, especially for the second goal,” said Henry meanwhile CBS Sports coverage of the game.

“I’ve seen a player not just about his skill but his will and the way he pushed the ball past Trent Alexander-Arnold or the way he put pressure on Gomez was second to none. I like that he has the awareness to see where Zielinski is and we know what happened with the penalty afterwards. It was the right decision.

“He was great. The Run and Consciousness. People will say, “Well, what’s so difficult about that?” Some people don’t see what’s happening on the field and his head was always up. This guy has this little contagious thing. That’s why the Napoli fans are in love with him.

“Yes, you can be cocky. If you play like that, you can get cocky. He delivered against Liverpool, like I said, he’s contagious. He’s been there for a minute and the Napoli fans already love him. He has heart and skill.”

Kvaratskhelia certainly made a big impression as Napoli destroyed Jurgen Klopp’s team. He will try to continue his good form for the rest of the season, which will only push his stock higher.

Spurs and Leeds, along with the striker’s other potential suitors, will no doubt be keeping an eye on his development.

It wouldn’t be a surprise if he moved to the Prem in the future. After all, Kvaratskhelia has already proven that he can cause serious problems for a respectable defence.

In the meantime, Richarlison admitted he had “one of the best days of my life” after his game-winning exploits against Marseille in UCL.
