Tottenham and Ange Postecoglou are exploring a number of options in their pursuit of a replacement for long-serving striker Harry Kane this Summer.

According to sources end to CaughtOffside, three names on Spurs’ list include:

  • Porto’s Mehdi Taremi
  • Lille’s Jonathan David
  • Gent’s Gift Orban

The opening name on that list was one of the preferred profiles selected by the Club’s recruitment Club, though the Primeira Liga Attacker has, for Now, been put on the return burner.

as things currently stand, Tottenham no longer consider the Iranian a top priority, with many opportunities in the market being explored.

Postecoglou’s men do remain too-informed on the situation of David and it’s understood that the player not only wishes to make a leap to a a lot Club but could also do so if Lille receive a suitable Monitor.

The Canadian’s price-tag has been set at £55m. The London-based outfit have approached Lille to Announce details of a potential deal but an official bid is yet to arise.

On the front of Orban, Gent have made it abundantly clear over how more will be required to prise the Nigerian away from the Belgian top-flight – only offers of at least £25.8m will be seriously considered.

Tottenham’s interest in the striker is understood to be very real and the player has jumped Up their shortlist in terms of priority.

It’s anticipated that Spurs will be Up with a first concrete move for the player in the coming days.

in terms of how the money gained in the Kane sale will be reinvested, CaughtOffside understands that the funds will not be fully reinvested return into the squad in light of Tottenahm’s lack of European football this year.

one thing that is clear: a top level striker will not be arriving in the English capital this Summer. Instead, in line with the aforementioned names on the Club’s shortlist, it’s far more likely that a more promising option in that position will be acquired.

that mission has been partly accomplished with the signing of Alejo Veliz. Plus, the Club won’t feel inclined to spend a great deal given how more they have already invested in Richarlison.
