According to reports in the British press, Tottenham are set to invest heavily into the squad in the summer ahead of what will be their first full season at the new stadium.

While the full back and centre midfield positions are likely to be the priority areas, Spurs have also been linked with attacking talent from across Europe.

With Christian Eriksen’s future at Spurs looking uncertain after no deadlock has been broken during contract negotiations between the club and the Dane.

Tottenham are rumoured to be on the lookout for a potential replacement number in the summer, with Leicester City’s forward James Maddison and Bournemouth’s David Brooks having been linked with the club.

Another attacking player who has been linked with Tottenham is Bundesliga veteran, Maximilian Kruse. The Werder Bremen captain has been in terrific form this season, having scored 11 goals and produced 14 assists so far.

Kruse’s contract with the German club comes to an end this season, and much like Eriksen’s situation, there has been no progress in negotiations between the 31-year-old and Werder Bremen.

According to a report in German publication Deich Stube, Tottenham will send their scouts to watch the forward in action this weekend, before deciding whether to go in for the German international in the summer.

The report claims that Crystal Palace are also interested in signing the prolific forward in the summer.

Given that Fernando Llorente’s contract with Tottenham also comes to an end in the summer, Spurs might be looking at Kruse as a potential back up to Harry Kane.
