Tottenham Hotspur head coach Jose Mourinho has already expressed his desire to bring in a new forward to his squad ahead of the transfer window closing (Sky Sports).
Spurs have previously found it difficult to find a forward willing to compete with Harry Kane for a place in the side.
Mourinho has already made it clear that he does not want a striker who is afraid of the competition at the club to get the opportunity to play (Guardian).
Football Insider claimed yesterday that were considering making a move for Crystal Palace’s Christian Benteke before the window slams shut on October 5th.
Benteke revealed in an interview with La Meuse as translated by Football.London in April that Spurs made an approach to bring him to North London during the January transfer window following Harry Kane’s hamstring injury.
Belgian football journalist Kristof Tereur has taken to Twitter to pour cold water on the talk of Benteke heading to North London making a reference to 2013 when Spurs were linked with a move for the former Aston Villa player (Guardian).
Are we back in 2013 when Christian Benteke submitted a transfer request to move to Spurs?
There hasn’t been any contact between Tottenham and Big Ben so far – that’s now, Monday 10:32am. https://t.co/DN8c7VRMWb
