Tottenham are said to be looking to add attacking reinforcements to the squad after the recent injuries to Harry Kane and Dele Alli.

Spurs have been primarily linked with homegrown players including the likes of Jack Clarke, Jarrod Bowen due to their problems with fulfilling the homegrown player criteria.
