News has arrived that has given deflated Tottenham supporters some hope that better times may be ahead.
The Mirror suggest that under pressure manager Andre Villas-Boas is ready to make a loan swoop for a promising La Liga starlet.
John Cross from the paper has arrived in the bar to indicate that Villas-Boas is keeping tabs on Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata as he looks to solve his current striking issues at White Hart Lane.
The speculation comes after Spurs’ embarrassing 6-0 away defeat to Manchester City on Sunday with Spurs fans growing increasingly concerned about their side’s lack of goals.
Despite spending over £100 million during the summer, the Lilywhites have only found the net nine times as big money summer signing Roberto Soldado struggles to adapt to the pace of the Premier League.
It’s not the first time that the Madrid starlet has been linked with a possible White Hart Lane as Spurs reportedly tried to bring the 21-year-old to North London as part of the deal that took Gareth Bale to the Bernabeu in the summer.
However the move was blocked by incoming Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti, but now the veteran boss believes that a possible loan switch will help to aid the Spanish Under-21 international’s career.
Current Spurs strikers Emmanuel Adebayor and Jermain Defoe appear to be surplus to requirements at White Hart Lane and Morata – who scored in Los Blancos’ 5-0 weekend rout of Almeria – could be the solution as Villas-Boas considers a tactical switch back to an old-fashioned 4-4-2 as he tries to get the best out of Soldado.
