It is that time of the year again that rumors linking clubs with various players start popping up everywhere, as the January transfer window opens in less than 48 hours.
Several experts and pundits have suggested that one area where Tottenham have to strengthen, is in the striking department, where the team still lack an able understudy to England Captain Harry Kane.
With rumors that Llorente has agreed personal terms with Galatasaray ahead of a move to the club and with Vincent Janssen seemingly frozen out, adding a striker has certainly become a priority for Pochettino.
One player who has been linked with the club is Hull City striker Jarrod Bowen, who has been setting the championship alight with his performances. The Hull Daily Mail reported earlier in the month that Spurs were one of the clubs who had sent scouts to watch the 22-year-old in action for Hull this season.
The striker has scored 10 goals so far this season for the Tigers including 6 in his last 6 matches. However, Hull manager Nigel Adkins insists that Hull aren’t looking to sell Bowen at the moment.
Speaking after the game against Leeds, Adkins told The Mirror: “Jarrod Bowen has scored two great goals. We’re not looking to sell. The owners have said we don’t need to. However, we all know what football can be like.”
“Jarrod has scored 14 last season, he’s got 10 this season. He’s a young English player who’s exciting and has got flair. Who knows what will happen?”
“I’m sure his representatives would love to have him touted around everywhere, that’s football. But I’m really pleased that he’s working hard for the team.”
Reading between the lines that clearly seems as if while Adkins isn’t ruling out a move, he is saying Hull certainly won’t be letting the 22-year-old for a cheap offer.
Jarrod Bowen certainly fits the profile of a Tottenham signing – a young upcoming English player with massive potential. We would have to wait and see if Spurs will be willing to go for the young striker this January.
