Tottenham enjoyed an exceptional summer transfer window.
The north London club have made genuine strides to strengthen Jose Mourinho’s squad.
The Portuguese, of course, is a renowned winner, and there is a hope, clearly, that they will be able to challenge for major honours this term.
The signings of Gareth Bale and Sergio Reguilon from Real Madrid understandably made the most headlines, but the acquisitions of Matt Doherty, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Joe Rodon, Carlos Vinicius, and Joe Hart could also have a transformative effect on their chances of success this term.
With five games of the season played, Spurs have beaten Southampton and Manchester United, drawn with Newcastle United and West Ham United – the latter after throwing away a 3-0 lead – and lost to Everton.
They face Burnley on Monday and one position they haven’t struggled in so far is scoring goals.
They netted five against Southampton and six against Manchester United, while also scoring three times versus the Irons.
But it seems they may still be in the market for striking reinforcements despite bringing Vinicius in on loan from Benfica.
They were linked with a possible move for Arkadiusz Milik, the Napoli striker, in the summer and it does not appear that the interest is dwindling.
Sport Witness carries a report from Area Napoli claiming that the forward would like to seal a move away from Serie A in January.
He’s potentially available for as little as €8m (£7.2m) because his contract expires at the end of the season.
Spurs remain interested, according to the report, along with a number of Italian clubs.
GIVEMESPORT’S Harry Sherlock says…
Vinicius has only just made his debut but one has to think this could be an intelligent deal for chairman Daniel Levy to do.
He struck an agreement with Benfica to be able to sign Vinicius in the summer but it would cost in excess of £40m.
A deal for Milik would be cheaper and he is also a more recognisable, proven figure.
He’s only 26 and has a pedigree of scoring 38 goals in just 93 Serie A outings.
If Milik is available, Spurs should do everything they can to bring him in during the January transfer window.
It must be said that one can never have too many good strikers, and adding Milik to Vinicius and Harry Kane would be an excellent idea.News Now - Sport News
