While there is still uncertainty over the future of Fernando Llorente at Tottenham Hotspur, some fans are certainly wondering who will act as a back-up to Harry Kane this season.
Llorente’s contract expired last month and there has been no announcement from the North London club on whether he has been released (Football.London).
One player who Spurs were linked with as a possible summer recruit to help Kane with the goalscoring burden was Callum Wilson.
The Sun reported that Spurs were hoping to land the Bournemouth striker for around £40 million this summer after the 27-year-old had scored a respectable 58 goals in 148 appearances for the Cherries (BBC).
However, it looks as if any hopes that Spurs had of bringing the England international to the club are now over after he put pen to paper on a new contract at Bournemouth.
Wilson was already under contract until 2022, but has now signed a fresh deal that will keep him on the south coast until 2023 (BBC).
Spurs certainly face a difficult prospect of recruiting an able striker who can help score 15+ goals a season when they know that they will always be playing second fiddle to Harry Kane.
