Tottenham Hotspur have been on the hunt for a suitable second-string striker to play as a back-up to Harry Kane for some time now.
Roberto Soldado wasn’t up to the job and Vincent Janssen hasn’t fared any better in North London, while Fernando Llorente’s contract has actually expired at the club (Football London).
Pochettino did use the like of Lucas Moura and Heung Min Son as forwards last year to great success, but he may still be looking for an out-and-out striker to add to his squad.
Recent reports have linked Spurs with a move for 25-year-old Real Madrid forward, Mariano Diaz (AS Sport).
The Daily Star now claim that Zinedine Zidane has given the green light on a potential transfer to North London, but only if it means Los Blancos can secure Christian Eriksen.
El Desmarque similarly claim that Pochettino has requested Diaz to be part of any deal involving the Great Dane.
Eriksen has just a year left on his contract at Tottenham, and Daniel Levy may be forced to sell up or risk losing the talented playmaker on a free.
