If recent reports are to be believed, Tottenham Hotspur could be in the market for a striker during the January transfer window.

The North Londoners have been established as the favourites to land Diego Costa who is now a free agent after Atletico Madrid terminated his contract.

The speculation linking the club with Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik is also showing no signs of going away.

One other name who has frequently been mentioned as a potential target for Jose Mourinho’s side is Wolfsburg striker Wout Weghorst, who Tottenham reportedly showed serious interest in during the previous transfer window.

Tottenham have been backed to make another offer for the Dutchman in January, with Sport Bild’s head of football Christian Falk even claiming that the striker has been ‘promised’ a move to Spurs in January if the North Londoners meet Wolfsburg’s price tag.

However, the 28-year-old has poured cold water over the speculation, admitting that he does not expect to move in January.

Weghorst told Eindhoven Dagblad (as translated by Sport Witness): “I am not working on it (a January move) now, because I have no control over it.

“I don’t think January is the ideal time to make a transfer either. It’s only football, so you never know.

“I also have to be satisfied with what I have. I have a great contract with a club where I like it.

“We live here nicely, have a good time. I think I can stay here for the rest of my life; I like that.

“But I am ambitious; I would like to play the Champions League, that seems so nice.”

Spurs Web Opinion

If it is true that we are after another striker in January, I would personally prefer Weghorst over Costa and Milik. However, the Dutchman is likely to be the most expensive option out of the three and would thus entail more risk.
