Football Insider have now reported that talks between Tottenham and Real Sociedad have stalled with regards to the transfer of striker Willian Jose.

The publication reported yesterday that the deal was now regarded as unlikely, but have now updated fans by stating that, although stalled, the deal could be revived.

They say that Tottenham are planning a late deadline-day move for the 28-year-old, but only if they are unable to bring anyone else in between now and then.

This comes as Daniel Levy and co look to find some kind of cover for the long-term absentee Harry Kane, who underwent surgery on his hamstring earlier this month.

Football Insider add that Willian Jose may be an easier option that Krzysztof Piatek from AC Milan, as they claim that Sociedad are willing to accept a bid far below the £59 buyout clause.

It is reported that £12m has been mentioned to Spurs, but even that is above what Daniel Levy wants to spend.

Spurs Web Opinion:

If Levy is not willing to spend £12m on a second striker for the club, then I am baffled. This is a necessity if the team wants to progress. Spurs cannot rely on Kane staying fit for an entire season and they are struggling with no focal point in attack.
