With just 11 days left to go before our beloved Premier League returns to our screens here in the Football Transfer Tavern, the punters are understandably getting excited.
Nevertheless, a few of our Tottenham regulars are wondering just when Mauricio Pochettino is going to be bringing striking reinforcements into White Hart Lane.
In truth, available strikers are a rare commodity this summer and with the options dwindling by the day at the moment, everybody connected with Spurs knows options are running out ahead of the new season.
While the transfer window is open until the end of August of course, right now it looks as if few noteworthy options are around to compliment the goals of Harry Kane but one man who’s been talked about is West Bromwich Albion’s Saido Berahino.
An up-and-coming star in the Premier League, most Spurs fans would take the Baggies star right now but today, the England Under-21 international has been warned off a move to Spurs by former Albion boss Alan Irvine who has claimed Berahino is not ready for a move to a club such as Tottenham.
Scoring 14 Premier League goals last term, it appears Berahino is on the rise but after his public claim that suggested he could do better than Albion last term, perhaps those around him will convince him to keep his feet on the ground while continuing his education at The Hawthorns for now.
If Berahino does opt to take Irvine’s advice, Tottenham will need to have yet another rethink and that’s why we’ve devised five alternatives to the Baggies forward for Spurs to consider.
