According to a report by reliable football.london journalist Alasdair Gold, Tottenham are intent on signing a new striker this summer to provide back up for star hitman Harry Kane – with the journalist detailing a plethora of options and potential names to watch out for ‘on the agenda’.
Since Fernando Llorente’s departure in the summer of 2019, with the Spaniard securing a move to Napoli, Tottenham have failed to bring in an alternative centre-forward who can support Kane whilst providing an extra dimension.
As a result, ahead of a looming and busy 2020/2021 Premier League calendar, chairman Daniel Levy and co have reportedly made it their priority to search for another attacker.
Who should Spurs bring in?
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Matt Doherty and ex-free agent Joe Hart have so far been added to the Spurs roster, shoring up Jose Mourinho’s defence as he prepares for his first full campaign in charge, but Kane remains his only natural striker.
Gold, writing for football.london, has claimed that Spurs could swoop for a number of striking additions – with Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson seemingly topping the list.
Meanwhile, his teammate Josh King is less of a priority target but nevertheless someone to keep an eye on as the transfer window unfolds – with the ex-Man United prodigy also capable of providing support in the wide positions.
Chris Wood, Ollie Watkins and Darwin Nunez were also mentioned in the piece as targets – although the trio appear less likely by comparison to the Cherries forwards.
Whoever Tottenham manage to land, Gold has at least shed some light on Spurs’ hunt for a striker – potential reason for Lilywhites to get excited.
