Football.London have claimed that Tottenham Hotspur have turned their attentions to RB Salzburg striker Patson Daka, as they continue their hunt to sign a suitable backup to Harry Kane.
With just a few days to go until the start of the new season, some Spurs fans are understandably frustrated at the club’s inability to sign a striker.
Several names have been thrown around as potential targets in recent weeks but Football.London reveals that the North Londoners could be set to move for Daka.
The Zambian international found the back of the net 27 times for Salzburg last season, and it is claimed that he has caught the attention of several clubs across Europe (Wikipedia).
Liverpool and Arsenal are also said to be interested in the striker but Daniel Levy is reportedly looking to seal a deal for the 21-year-old ahead of the competition.
The report suggests that the Lilwhites might have a potential advantage over their rivals in the chase for Daka as the striker is represented by 12Management, an organisation which former Spurs striker Frederic Kanoute founded and serves as the CEO of.

While it remains to be seen if a deal for Daka would be possible, the Salzburg does tick almost every box for Jose Mourinho. He is strong, good in the air and can hold up the ball, while also being quick enough to run-in behind the opposition defence. His willingness to take players on means that he can also be used as a potential wide option. If we get a deal for the 21-year-old over the line, it could be an unbelievable coup for us as he would open up so many tactical possibilities.
