There has been a lot of talk in the Spanish press over the past 48 hours about a Tottenham move for Real Sociedad striker Willian Jose.

This comes as Harry Kane, Tottenham senior striker, has been ruled out until April after rupturing the tendon on his left hamstring earlier this month.

Apart from 17-year-old Troy Parrott, Spurs do not have another natural centre-forward option at the club, hence why Lucas Moura and Heung Min Son are filling in.

It was initially reported by Sports Carousel that Spurs and Sociedad were close to agreeing a €50m deal for Jose in the January window.

This was followed by a similar claim from Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano who also spoke of the two clubs being in advanced talks.

However, Charlie Eccleshare from The Athletic claimed that the Lilywhites were unlikely to seal the deal in January.

The Evening Standard have now updated fans with the claim that Jose is not considered a primary target for Tottenham this month, despite the reports from Spain.

Spurs Web Opinion:

The general pattern seems to be that the Spanish press say it is happening and the English press seem far more hesitant. With just a week left of the transfer window, Spurs will have to get a move on if they want to sign any striker.
