The Lowdown: Tottenham search for attacking impetus as Harry Kane uncertainty refuses to die down

With long-term speculation surrounding Harry Kane’s next move amid strong links with Manchester City, Nuno Espirito Santo will no doubt look to strengthen his forward line if he wasn’t contemplating the prospect already due to a lack of depth behind the talisman

The Lilywhites have been quoted with an interest in Dusan Vlahovic and Bamford in recent weeks.

However, the former seems set for Atletico Madrid and the latter now looks very unlikely to rock up at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this summer.

The Latest: Bamford set to snub Tottenham interest

Leeds United are said to be desperate to tie the 6 foot 1 Bamford down with a new contract at Elland Road in the near future [The Mirror].

The 27-year-old is believed to have signalled his happiness to stay put in Yorkshire, citing his nomadic career trajectory which has seen him play for nine different clubs so far.

This could well kill any notion of the frontman winding up at Spurs, with Leeds expectant that he will commit his future to the club, after giving him an opportunity to prove his quality in the English top-flight.

The Verdict: Expected

Despite Tottenham’s alleged attraction towards the former Chelsea star, there was always a strong likelihood that Bamford would elect to stay at Elland Road.

Multiple factors come into this, not least his strong relationship with manager Marcelo Bielsa and his status as a key player within the side – if Kane stays, one would have to assume he would arrive in north London simply as a back-up option.

Furthermore, his appetite to constantly be involved in attacking play shone through, amassing an average of 2.8 shots per game across the piece [WhoScored].

Once labelled as ‘exceptional’ by Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, the chase now looks all but dead in the water for the Tottenham Hotspur hierarchy, signalling that they may need to move on to other targets [METRO].
