The wretched end to the season at White Hart Lane may have caused a few of the Spurs fans in the Transfer Tavern to drown their sorrows, though few of them would argue that things are on the up. 

With Champions League football on the way, it promises to be a hugely exciting summer for the locals propping up the bar in our famous four walls.

Though Harry Kane is undoubtedly the star striker at White Hart Lane, the options after the England international are a little light.

Entry to the continent’s elite competition brings further pressure upon your squad and there’s little doubt the North London side will be active in the transfer market this summer.

In fact, it looks like they’re getting started already.

According to the Daily Mail, manager Mauricio Pochettino is weighing up a £20m offer for Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson.

The 24-year old is seemingly a natural fit for Spurs, possessing the necessary energy and urgency required in equal measure.

Despite a serious knee injury, the former Coventry City star is believed to have emerged as a top target at White Hart Lane.

Prior to his season defining ailment, Wilson notched five goals in his opening six games for the Cherries.

London rivals West Ham United are also understood to be interested in the player, having seen a double bid for him and teammate Matt Ritchie knocked back earlier this week.

Is Wilson the perfect alternative to Kane? Is he worth £20m in the current climate?
