Injuries to Harry Kane and Heung-min Son at the turn of the year certainly caused Tottenham Hotspur with a lack of attacking options.

Spurs head coach Jose Mourinho admitted that teenage forward Troy Parrott was not ready to play regular first-team football despite some supporters urging the Portuguese to give the Republic of Ireland international a chance to shine (Evening Standard).

Mourinho admitted that he was keen to bring in a new forward during the winter window only to fail to bolster his attacking options (Goal).

The Daily Mail claimed in June that Mourinho is ‘thought to be an admirer’ of Eberechi Eze and is keen to bring the QPR forward to Spurs this summer.

Any hopes of a deal could be potentially made more complicated by Crystal Palace, who have already had a bid of £12million plus add-ons rejected by the Championship club, according to The Guardian’s deputy sport news editor Ed Aarons.

It is claimed that Eze will only leave if a club matches the £16million valuation of the Hoops.

Eze is one of the brightest talents in the Championship, but Spurs need to focus their attentions on a target man as a back-up for Harry Kane.  

We already have the likes of Lucas Moura and Steven Bergwijn who are similar in style to the QPR man.

  1. £16M doesn’t strike me as massive for a highly talented striker, yet Levy whose wheeling dealing tactics makes Harry Redknapp look like the astute business man by comparison and him more like Del boy is the crux of the problem. Levy always wants something for nothing and that’s doesn’t bode well for Tottenham or Mourinho’s transfer aspirations. I fear we are set to miss out on a number of players this summer with further frustration to follow!
