According to an update courtesy of journalist David Ornstein, Spurs have Bournemouth striker Joshua King ‘on a list’ of transfer targets ahead of the upcoming 2020/2021 Premier League campaign – and chairman Daniel Levy may only have to pay £15 million to make a deal happen.
King, who has scored 17 goals in 48 international caps for Norway (Transfermarkt), has reportedly been on Tottenham’s radar for some time along with a plethora of star alternatives.
Should Josh King be made a priority target?
Yes, get a deal done Levy
No, average striker
Reliable Tottenham correspondent Alasdair Gold recently claimed that King was a name being considered by Levy and co, as well as the likes of Callum Wilson and Ollie Watkins, but both these strikers have since secured moves to different clubs.
Aston Villa are also ‘interested‘ in the attacker who was once described as a ‘massive‘ player for the Cherries by Eddie Howe, with Spurs now facing even more competition if they wish to make King a priority, and they won’t want to lose out on him in the same manner as Watkins.
Now, as Spurs’ list of potential attacking targets grows smaller and smaller, King remains firmly on there according to Ornstein – but the club may also prioritise other swoops.
On Wednesday evening, the Lilywhites were tipped by journalist Gold to look further abroad for options, having become linked with the likes of Patson Daka, Habib Diallo and Arkadiusz Milik.
Daka in particular stands out as a noteworthy target, having racked up 24 goals in just 31 Bundesliga appearances for Red Bull Salzburg last season.
Only time will tell who Tottenham approach to sign, but given Jose Mourinho’s need for a back-up striker to Harry Kane, the hunt for a forward should arguably be made a priority.
