Writing for football.london, reliable Tottenham Hotspur correspondent Alasdair Gold has claimed that the Lilywhites keep running into one issue during their search for a striker – with enquiries made into players who do not want to play ‘second fiddle’ to Harry Kane.
Indeed, as chairman Daniel Levy and co continue to scour the market for fresh attacking options up front, it’s been revealed that the majority of the club’s enquiries have fell flat due to targets not wanting to be behind Kane in the pecking order.
Will Spurs add a new striker before the October 5 deadline?
Yes, best summer transfer window in years
No, luck has ran out
Of the names that have been mentioned, Arkadiusz Milik, Habib Diallo, Andrea Belotti and Patson Daka have all attracted interest from Spurs – but three out of those four (bar Diallo) appear unlikely this summer as per football.london.
Gold claims links with Wolfsburg striker Wout Weghorst are also wide of the mark, and despite previous reports that Tottenham were considering another offer for Milik, the reliable correspondent has now stated that Spurs have cooled their interest.
As the October 5 deadline looms, Jose Mourinho could be running out of time to add another striking addition to his roster as the chase for Champions League qualification begins.
The Portuguese serial winner has previously stated his desire to bring in another attacker who can supply much needed strength in depth behind Kane, but the options are wearing thin as Spurs keep bumping in to familiar issues.
A forward is allegedly first priority ahead of a centre-back as Tottenham’s potential sixth summer signing, but it remains to be seen whether Spurs can approach more suitable targets.
