Tottenham Hotspur are undoubtedly reliant on Harry Kane as their main source of goals each season, which is no surprise as the England captain is one of the world’s best.
In recent seasons the façade that Kane is a goal scoring machine has slowly started to deteriorate over time.
Last season alone, Kane was out for a total of 91 days and missed 17 games, and during Kane’s January stint in the recovery room, Dele Alli was also out injured and we lost Heung Min Son to international duty.
This has lead to Tottenham scouring the globe for a young striker to lighten the burden on Kane and Son’s shoulders. And reportedly, Spurs now have their eye on young AC Milan striker Patrick Cutrone (Tuttomercatoweb).
After being banned from next seasons Europa League for breaching Financial Fair Play regulations, AC Milan are open to the sale of their young Italy international and at a relatively low-risk fee of £22.5 million (CalcioMercato).
The young striker is a raw talent, and with only 3 goals in 22 Serie A appearances last season, with only 12 starts, he has plenty of room for growth.
If Mauricio Pochettino can work his magic on yet another young talent, then Cutrone could be a snip at the quoted fee of £22.5 million.
Spurs Web opinion –
£22.5 Million doesn’t seem a lot of money in the current transfer fee landscape, but with very low figures in the attacking department last season Cutrone could be a risk that doesn’t pay off… on the other hand, he could turn out to be another smart investment for the future. Either way, it might help relieve some of the pressure off Kane and Son.
