Former-teammate believes this man would push through a Spurs move given the chance

Tottenham Hotspur are in dire need of some attacking reinforcements this month, as they currently boast only Fernando Llorente on a list of their fit senior strikers.

Harry Kane has been ruled out until early March after sustaining an ankle injury in the 1-0 loss to Man United at Wembley on Sunday.

The striker hobbled off the pitch at full time, and had a scan on his ankle once the swelling went down.

Usual back up man Heung Min Son is also unavailable for the Lilywhites, as he joined up with his South Korea teammates at the Asia Cup this week.

Lucas Moura is also currently nursing an injury of his own.

One ex-Premier League player has claimed that an old teammate of his would probably push through a move to Tottenham, given the chance.

Jonathan Walters says that former Stoke teammate Marko Arnautovic would make some noise to get a move to Spurs if they were interested.

Would he be worth the money? And would West Ham sell?

Walters said this on BBC 5 Live’s Football Daily Podcast (Reported by Football London): “He has made noises, well his brother has made noises and it happened at Stoke. I’m sure if Marko had the sniff of Tottenham there would be more noises made.

“I think we all know the money in China is the major factor of it, but he would be a readymade player to go into a Tottenham team because he can score goals.

“He can play in that up front role that Harry Kane does and he’s a phenomenal player for me.

“A good guy, a phenomenal player, and he would fit right in but he wouldn’t get the kind of wages he would get in China.

“And then, would West Ham sell him to Tottenham? I think it would be a case of no chance.”

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. If his “reported” wages are indeed 200K/week…then he overvalues himself (or maybe his brother does). No doubt that he is a good player but he is NOT on the level IMHO of a Harry Kane.
