Tottenham Hotspur are reported to be keen on adding a striker as well as a ccentral midfielder to the squad before the end of this month due to the injury crisis at the club.

Spurs have been linked with several names across Europe for the past couple of weeks.

It now appears Spurs might not just be looking for players from the continent but also from across the pond.

Argentine publication Ole report that Spurs have registered their interest in £23 million-rated Atlanta United forward Miguel Almiron.

The 24-year-old Paraguayan who has 12 international caps to his name so far had a stellar season in Major League Soccer in which he guided Atlanta to the MLS Cup. The player scored 13 goals and created 11 others in 37 appearances for the Georgia-based side.

Newcastle United have also been linked with Almiron for the past couple of weeks as Rafa Benitez is said to be a big fan of the Paraguayan.

While the report suggests that Atlanta will be willing to let Almiron go, the 24-year-old might not exactly fit Tottenham’s requirements at the moment.

Almiron can play centrally just behind the striker or out wide, along with operating just behind the forward line.

Tottenham are well stocked with attacking midfielders at the moment and thus a central midfielder to replace Dembele and a striker to cover for Kane would likely be the club’s priority.
