So far this summer, Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has completely addressed his defence with all of Kevin Wimmer, Kieran Trippier and Toby Alderweireld arriving at White Hart Lane.
With Alderweireld’s signature having taken place a few weeks back now, our resident Spurs fans in the Football Transfer Tavern have eagerly been anticipating news of a Tottenham swoop for either another midfielder or more desperately, a new striker to complement Harry Kane.
Tottenham are desperately short up top right now, seemingly pinning all of their goalscoring hopes on Kane’s shoulders with the long-term futures of Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado very much in doubt.
All the better that Spurs are closing in on a deal for West Bromwich Albion’s England Under-21 international striker Saido Berahino according to what you read in the Daily Mail.
According to the publication, the Baggies are holding out for £25 million for their prized asset and with Spurs in desperate need of reinforcements up top, you can imagine Daniel Levy reluctantly parting with that fee for the young striker.
Berahino appears to be on the move this summer when you consider Tony Pulis’ Baggies broke their own transfer record to sign Venezuelan international forward Salomon Rondon from Zenit Saint-Petersburg this week as what looks like a direct replacement for the outgoing Berahino.
With the Baggies striker reportedly closing in on a switch to North London, who else could be joining him this summer? We look at five leading candidates.
