A large amount of Tottenham’s transfer activity will heavily depend on Harry Kane and whether the 28-year-old will still be present in north London come the end of the window.
The England captain is still heavily linked with a move to Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City but football.london understands that Daniel Levy will not consider a sale unless an offer of around £150million is made.
If Kane does end up leaving the north Londoners, then it’s imperative that the club bring in a striker before deadline day.
Recent reports have suggested that the club are preparing to step up their interest in Fiorentina forward Dusan Vlahovic and have already spoken to the player’s agent Darko Ristic about a potential move.
The 21-year-old certainly possesses a desirable frame that would be tailored to Nuno Espirito Santos’ style of play.
Standing at 6ft 3in, the Serbian is comfortable in dropping deep and connecting the midfield and attack together which is what the Spurs manager will expect from his centre forward.
Lautaro Martinez is another who has been heavily linked with a move to the club – with a fee understood to be agreed – and although the Argentinean doesn’t possess the height of Vlahovic, he certainly offers plenty of qualities that would come in handy.
The 23-year-old excels in shielding the ball well by utilising his low centre of gravity to his advantage, presses from the front effectively and scores goals when adequate service is provided, tallying 19 goals in all competitions last season.
It’s a signing that has certainly got the seal of approval from ex-Spurs striker Louis Saha.
“Lautaro Martinez would be a great replacement for Harry Kane,” he told GentingBet.
“He’s Argentinian and they are usually very good at adapting to the Premier League. I don’t see any problem for this calibre of player.
“Obviously, Tottenham will need to find a different tactic and operate in a different style to make it work.’’
