Fabrizio Romano hints at Tottenham unrest as striker search heats up


Tottenham Hotspur have enjoyed an excellent transfer window so far.

However such success doesn't come without significant hardship behind the scenes.

After finishing sixth in the Premier League last term the focus this summer was always going to be on strengthening the first team squad.

As a proven winner, Jose Mourinho knows what it takes to thrive in the top flight and that's exactly what he's looking to do in north London.

As well as competing for major trophies, Mourinho has been tasked with qualifying for the Champions League this term and that's why he was so keen to strengthen the squad.

Five players have already been added to the group, including Sergio Reguilon and Gareth Bale who joined from Real Madrid.

Another position that's been targeted is a striker, with Carlos Vinicius of Benfica heavily linked with a move to the club.

The search for a new forward has apparently taken its toll behind the scenes, with Fabrizio Romano hinting that the search has led to a clash between Mourinho and Daniel Levy as they look to find the ideal man to join the club.


But while Vinicius now seems to be the frontrunner, Romano has said that Tottenham fans should keep an eye on the situation regarding a different target.

Speaking to Oddschecker on YouTube, Romano said: "They are discussing between the board and Mourinho.

"They have different ideas about the kind of strikers they want.

"They are discussing to find an agreement about the player."

Romano added: "Pay attention to Milik.


"He is one of the most serious options on the list.

"After speaking with many agents I think they have been offered over 100 strikers.

"They have to make a decision. Pay attention to Milik, in my opinion. They were also talking to Bayer Leverkusen but Bayer Leverkusen said no.

"The same for Luka Jovic but they don't want this type of striker.

"Pay attention to Milik because he has been offered again. However, he has many injuries and Harry Kane has some injuries in the season. He is an option to loan with an option to buy."


GIVEMESPORT'S Phil Spencer says...

Tottenham's striker search has gone on for an incredibly long time.

With Fernando Llorente leaving the club last summer, you could argue that the search has taken 14 months to get to this point - something which is absolutely mad.

Thankfully for supporters, it seems that a breakthrough is near.

Carlos Vinicius could be the man to fill this void, and based on what Fabrizio Romano has said it could be a good job that a deal is close.

Talk of 'different ideas' between Jose Mourinho and Daniel Levy is a bit worrying for supporters, and the hope will surely be that this disagreement can be put behind them as they look to kick on both on and off the pitch.
