Tottenham Hotspur are in need of some reinforcements up front for the next month, with star man Harry Kane out until early March with an ankle injury.

Usually Tottenham would turn to South Korean Heung Min Son in times without Kane, but the forward is away on international duty in the Asia Cup.

Spurs started with Fernando Llorente up top against Fulham at the weekend, but the striker looked far from confident as he spurned various good chances, and even turned the ball into his own net.

Tottenham became the first ever Premier League club not to make a single summer signing this season, so it seems far fetched that they would splash the cash now.

However, they have been linked with Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson, and a comment from the England man’s teammate Steve Cook has implied he would rather move to Spurs that rivals West Ham, who are also said to be interested.

Bournemouth are said to want £50m for the striker (Daily Mail) and Spurs are West Ham have both been linked of late, but the former’s Champions League football would apparently sway Wilson.

Cook said (Express): “Hopefully we can go on a journey with him. He wants to play in the Champions League, everyone does. Is that possible? For a lot of us maybe not but hopefully we can do our best for him and get him as high as possible,” the centre-back said.

“If Callum keeps scoring the goals I am sure it is going to be a tough thing to keep hold of him.

“But I can’t remember the last player we sold that was a big part of the gaffer’s plans so that says all we need to know.”
