Tottenham can sign striker for £45.2m this summer

Tottenham's forward line hasn't truly got firing since the return of Premier League football.

Harry Kane did score against West Ham but they had to rely on an own goal to put them in front.

They were hardly clinical against Manchester United either in their 1-1 draw with the Red Devils.

Speculation has linked Kane with a move away in recent weeks Daniel Levy has made it no secret that he will be going absolutely nowhere when the window opens.

Quite rightfully too. Without Kane, Spurs struggled and only won three of eight matches when he was out injured before the break for Coronavirus.

Son Heung-min and Steven Bergwijn can offer able support but when it comes to out and out strikers, they are few and far between at Tottenham.

Perhaps the help of Arkadiusz Milik would be beneficial.

GiveMeSport sources revealed earlier this week that Milik could move to Spurs in a swap deal involving Erik Lamela, however, fresh reports have emerged stating the asking price for the Pole if a player isn't involved. 

TuttoMercatoWeb claim Napoli are unwilling to let him go for less than €40m-€50m (£36.2m-£45.2m).

Spurs could well make a move but it's reported that Milik won't move to London unless they sell Kane.

It's a perfectly reasonable request given the lack of football he'd get behind a striker of Kane's calibre.

GIVEMESPORT'S Matt Dawson says...

Milik isn't an elite striker but if the Spurs forward does indeed depart, he'd be a mighty fine addition to Tottenham's attacking line.

In just 25 appearances this term, the Poland international has netted 13 times, adding to an impressive tally of 47 strikes in 112 games for the Italian side.

Compared to Robert Lewandowski, appraisals don't come much better than that for strikers. 

Aged 26, Milik is only just coming into his prime, something that should be hugely appealing to Spurs if they do make an offer for the forward.

Whether it's in a swap deal for Lamela or cash up front, a forward with such a good record would definitely be a worthy addition.

Though, the sacrifice of losing Kane would surely be too big a blow for Jose Mourinho and co.

The Pole would have enormous boots to fill if he arrives in the summer window.
