Can you get 10/10 in this impossible Tottenham pub quiz? What is Spurs' lowest ever finish of the Premier League era?

In the last few weeks alone, Spurs have been linked with a fair few strikers in Dusan Vlahovic, Simy and even Lautaro Martinez.

This comes amid question marks surrounding the future of superstar Harry Kane as Manchester City continue to push for his signature.

The Latest: Braithwaite ‘prefers’ to join Spurs…

Bringing the latest on Tottenham’s search for a new forward, Sport believe that Denmark international Braithwaite ‘prefers’ to join the Lilywhites over London rivals West Ham.

It is believed the possible departure of Kane would allow Spurs to sign two new strikers with the 30-year-old listed as a possible candidate to replace their star man if he were to leave.

Sport even claim that Braithwaite is ‘among the favourites’ to succeed Kane and he has asked for more time to consider his future, especially considering the option of a move to Spurs ‘attracts him much more’ than the Irons.

The Verdict: Avoid…

The 56-cap international has apparently restored his reputation in England following a solid Euro 2020 campaign, but we’d advise Spurs to avoid Braithwaite as a favourite to succeed Kane in the event of his departure.

He scored just two goals in 11 La Liga starts for Barcelona last season, leaving little wonder they are desperate to get him off the wage bill.

Braithwaite’s age also indicates that Tottenham stand to gain little to no sell-on value from his signing.

If he is to sign, it should be in support of either Kane or a superstar replacement, not as the replacement himself.
