Tottenham have stepped up their interest in Sevilla striker Carlos Bacca after sending their new recruitment chief on a midweek mission to watch the 28-year-old in action in the Europa League.
The Daily Mirror are today reporting that Paul Mitchell, who recently joined us from Southampton travelled to Germany to cast his eye over the forward who scored in the match against Borussia Moenchengladbach. He has scored 14 goals for Sevilla in league outings this season.
Should Tottenham want to land their man, it will take a fee of around £18million which is stipulated as a get-out clause in the contract he signed with the La Liga outfit five months ago. With it becoming evidently clear that both Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado are both likely to move onto pastures new during the summer, the requirement for another striker alongside Harry Kane has to be one of our big priorities.
One potential stumbling block could be Daniel Levy’s reluctance to sign a player, who at 28 would have a limited re-sale value if we are potentially going to pay £18m.
