Tottenham Hotspur are reported to be interested in signing Borussia Dortmund striker Paco Alcacer in the January transfer window.

The Transfer Window podcast featuring Duncan Castles and Ian McGarry have claimed that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is only prepared to sanction an offer which would see Alcacer move to North London on loan with an option to make the switch permanent.

The approach is said to be unlikely to be accepted by the German giants.

Tottenham are without their main striker after Harry Kane suffered a hamstring tear during the New Year’s Day defeat at Southampton with the club yet to confirm how likely he is expected to be out of action for.

Alcacer has scored seven goals in 15 appearances for Dortmund in all competitions this season but has failed to hold down a starting place in recent months (transfermarkt).


It would be hardly surprising for Levy to try and play his games to get a striker in on the cheap.  With Kane out of action and our chances of a top four finish looking slimmer and slimmer each week, it’s time for Levy to stop messing around and spend some money.
