Football Insider claim that Tottenham Hotspur are exploring the possibility of signing a top striker on loan with a view to completing a permanent deal next summer.

Recent reports from Italy indicate that Spurs have had a loan offer for Andrea Belotti with a with £46.3m option to buy him next summer rejected by Torino, with the Serie A side only looking to sell their star-striker in a permanent deal (Gianluca Di Marzio).

Football Insider report that a loan-to-buy formula is something Spurs are exploring as they continue to look for a striker to serve as Harry Kane’s back up.

The report claims that Tottenham are prepared to spend more than £20million for a striker this transfer window.

However, should an elite talent became available, it is said that the club will be willing to sign him on a loan deal this summer and pay more than £40m to complete a permanent transfer next year.

Spurs Web Opinion

A loan deal with an option to buy will come with relatively fewer risks but it will also be a hard deal to do as clubs generally would not be keen on the idea of letting their star players leave on a loan deal. Perhaps that is an indication that Tottenham want to keep their options open should a higher calibre of striker become available next summer.
