Tottenham Hotspur have been searching for a back-up striker to Harry Kane for some time now, but have yet to find a long-term solution.
Roberto Soldado failed to make an impact in North London and Vincent Janssen hasn’t exactly hit the ground running, barely making an appearance in the last two seasons.
Fernando Llorente was fairly unused in his first year at the club, but became an unlikely hero this season after Harry Kane suffered two long-term ankle injuries.
Llorente scored vital Champions League goals against Borussia Dortmund and Man City, before setting up the winner against Ajax in the semi-finals.
However, Llorente’s contract comes to an end this summer, and the 34-year-old is hardly a long-term solution to Spurs’ troubles (TransferMarkt).
Perhaps, with Harry Kane suffering from reoccurring injuries, Spurs actually need to invest in a strike partner for the England captain, rather than an understudy.
The Lilywhites have been linked with a move for Callum Wilson from Bournemouth in recent weeks, but the Evening Standard claim he would set them back £60m.
Would this be worth the investment for Spurs?
