Three Strikers Who Tottenham Can Target As A Backup For Harry Kane Next Season
Tottenham Hotspur have been one of the most consistent clubs in the Premier League this season as they stand closest to Chelsea at the top of the points table. Mauricio Pochettino will hope that his side can finish on a high and will be planning to add some quality to his attack at the end of the season. Dutch star Vincent Janssen has shown some improvement but Spurs need another striker who’d be ready to play second fiddle and perform when called upon.
Pochettino cannot spend big this summer with a decent squad already at his disposal and will have to find some cheap alternatives in attack. Here are three such underrated strikers who Pochettino should target this summer, as a backup for Harry Kane.
Luis Muriel (US Sampdoria):
The Colombian star has been a revelation at the Italian club, scoring for fun since his move back in 2015. He has been in superb form this season, scoring 12 goals and picking up 9 assists in all competitions and is a player the Spurs fans will love instantly. Known for his passing and finishing abilities, the 25-year old likes to dribble past his opponents before unleashing his dangerous foot and will surely be a success in the Premier League. He has constantly been linked with a move to Chelsea but Spurs should take a look at him as a backup for Kane this summer.
