Tottenham should move for Patrick Curtone but Harry Kane may be the problem

It’s about time Tottenham won a trophy, isn’t it? They’ve been there or thereabouts for a number of years now but their lacking squad depth has meant they haven’t won anything since the League Cup in 2008, so fans know they need to change that in the summer.

With Harry Kane playing as the lone striker in the most important games, it’s hard to attract a world-class centre-forward to play the cup games and the odd league minute. However, Patrick Cutrone is frustrated at AC Milan and a move to Spurs could be on the cards, according to Italian outlet Tuttomercatoweb.

At just 21-years-old he established himself as Milan’s first choice striker, making 24 appearances and pushing out Gonzalo Higuaín. However, since the Rossoneri signed Krzysztof Piatek from Genoa in January he’s struggled for game time, not starting any of the last five matches. It’s reported he’s frustrated with his position and wants a move, which could be an ideal opportunity for Spurs to jump in with an offer in summer.

As we know, Daniel Levy isn’t one to splash the cash, but the report believes an offer of as little as around £30m could persuade the Rossoneri to let the talented youngster go. His age would mean Mauricio Pochettino would be able to mould him to his system, but he also may be more patient in waiting for his chance in the big games due to his inexperience.

However, with the reports he isn’t happy because of his lack of game time, it would certainly be a risk to bring him to London. Chances are he’ll be second choice. That is unless he proves he’s better than Harry Kane, which is highly unlikely given the Englishman’s form.

Therein lies the problem. This could be a golden transfer chance but Kane’s presence may block his path, taking us back to the issue of not being able to draft in a convincing second choice.

Tottenham fans, would you agree? Is it an impossible task to sign a back-up for Kane of real note? Join the discussion by commenting below…
