As mentioned at the outset, with striking targets dwindling by the day, perhaps Tottenham will need to think outside the box while choosing an option from the left-field.
One man of this variety who was linked with Spurs back in May by The Mirror was AFC Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson who scored 20 goals for the Cherries in an unforgettable promotion campaign.
While some of our Spurs fans are rolling their eyes at this selection claiming he’s not a big enough name for the club, at the same time Mauricio Pochettino is a firm believer in youth.
At present, Wilson is one of those strikers who everybody believes will struggle to adjust to the step up to the Premier League but if he continues his hot vein of form in front of goal, you can imagine the pounds that’ll be added to his price tag while Spurs fans will regret they didn’t force the Cherries’ hand in the market.
Eddie Howe will of course not want to sell his star striker so close to the new campaign kicking off but if there’s any hint of truth in The Mirror’s story, perhaps £12 million will be too good for a club the size of Bournemouth to turn down.
