Premier League

Landing £11.7m-rated South American powerhouse would be Tottenham’s best striker signing in years

The Tottenham Hotspur fans here in the Transfer Tavern are delighted with the strength in depth available to Mauricio Pochettino these days. Indeed, having moved away from the idea that Mauricio Pochettino has little to work from outside of his starting XI, the punters propping up our bar couldn’t be happier. 

However, the one position in which Tottenham undoubtedly need to strengthen is up front. While Harry Kane is undoubtedly one of the best in the world, the options behind the England star leave a lot to be desired right now. The Fernando Llorente experiment hasn’t worked, much like Vincent Janssen before him and the club are still working out the best way to bring a forward of the required quality, though one who will invariably have to play second fiddle to Kane.

With that in mind, they could do a lot worse than moving for Solomon Rondon this summer, whether or not the Baggies are relegated. Though not overly prolific, the Venezuelan star is proven in the Premier League and can lead the line, bringing others into play, potential helping the likes of Dele Alli, Erik Lamela and Christian Eriksen score in Kane’s absence.

A technically gifted battering ram, he’d surely jump at the chance to join a big English club at this stage of his career and, presumably, could be available on the cheap if Alan Pardew is unable to keep the Baggies up. The 28-year-old can be unplayable at times and, valued at just £11.7m by Transfermarktcould be a wonderfully astute signing in north London this summer.
