We at the Football Transfer Tavern are waiting with baited breath to see which strikers Andre Villas-Boas will fetch to Tottenham this summer and today’s Sunday People indicates that the club are eyeing up a move for Saint-Etienne striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after making an official enquiry.
The Portuguese boss wants to sign at least two strikers this summer to North London with Barcelona’s David Villa and Valencia’s Roberto Soldado among the possible targets for Tottenham.
The paper reports that Spurs have now all but given up in the chase for long-term target and Brazilian international striker Leandro Damiao and with Premier League rivals Aston Villa demanding more than £25 million for Belgian ace Christian Benteke, Villas-Boas has shifted his striking targets.
The Gabon international, who notched an impressive hat-trick for his side as they hammered Niger 4-1 yesterday, would cost around the £10 million mark after he netted 21 goals for Saint-Etienne last season.
The 23-year-old is also thought to be a summer target for Newcastle United but the prospect of European football in North London could be enough to attract the talented marksman to the club.
