Analysing recent reports, there are three strikers Tottenham Hotspur could possibly sign in January as manager Mauricio Pochettino looks to add a frontman to his squad.
According to the Standard, Spurs are interested in signing Alvaro Morata from Juventus. The London club have reportedly joined the growing number of clubs vying for the Spanish striker’s signature.
The former Real Madrid striker is currently struggling to hold down a regular spot at the ‘Old Lady’, but still it’s less likely that Pochettino will make a ‘big money’ move in January as he is most likely searching for Kane’s backup. Although, Morata is apparently keen to leave Turin to gain regular playing time.
Another target for the White Hart Lane club is West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino, who was the subject of a £22m bid from Tottenham last summer and now it has widely been claimed that the Lilywhites have placed a £18 million bid to secure English striker’s services.
West Brom manager Tony Pulis doesn’t seem to trust Berahino – who has made 18 appearances this season, mostly from the bench. It’s under debate whether or not Berahino will be the right man for Spurs this season, as he is a long way from his best form – netting just six goals in 21 games in all competitions for the Baggies this term.
The third and final option for Poch is Fulham hitman Moussa Dembélé. However, reports suggest that Spurs have been told by the Cottagers they cannot have the 19-year-old before Monday’s transfer deadline.
Tottenham have made the French centre-forward a prime January target but their best chance of signing Dembele would appear to be on loan, with the Frenchman returning to Fulham until the end of the season.
Dembele may be the most realistic candidate to join Pochettino’s men as his transfer could be profitable for both sides. The France U20 international’s main aim is to play in the Premier League. He wants to gain valuable experience, but would be happy playing back up rather than demanding a place in the starting XI. It would give Spurs another option up front, and also give Kane the support he needs.
