According to The Telegraph, Tottenham are interested in signing Patrick Bamford from Leeds United this summer as an alternative to Dusan Vlahovic.
The Lowdown: Spurs eye a striker
Harry Kane’s desire to leave Spurs this summer (Sky Sports) means that the north Londoners must look to bring in a new centre-forward.
They had been heavily linked with a move for Fiorentina marksman Vlahovic (Gianluca di Marzio), but it seems that they may now have their eyes on another striker much closer to home.
The Latest: Spurs want Bamford
As per The Telegraph, Spurs are interested in making a move for Bamford.
Interestingly, they don’t see the 27-year-old Leeds striker as an alternative to Kane, but rather as someone who can play a supporting role behind the England captain.
The Verdict: Potential
Bamford has really come into his own across the past two years. He netted 16 goals in the Championship during the 2019/20 season as Leeds earned promotion to the Premier League; and even though his ability was questioned prior to last term, he found the back of the net 17 times as the Whites finished in the top half (Transfermarkt).

He even earned high praise from Liverpool’s Premier League-winning manager Jurgen Klopp, who called him “exceptional” (talkSPORT), and there is no doubt that Bamford is a fine striker who still has potential to improve under the right circumstances.
It remains to be seen whether Spurs could convince Leeds to part ways with the £19.8m-valued marksman (Transfermarkt), but his Premier League pedigree makes him an attractive proposition.
