Report: Tottenham linked with two new targets, both in Bundesliga

Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with two new attacking targets, as the search for reinforcements in the final third continues. 

The Daily Mail have suggested Spurs are interested in veteran Dutch forward Bas Dost, while Sky Sports state the Lilywhites are keeping tabs on Bayer Leverkusen winger Leon Bailey. 

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has pulled no punches in his public sentiment that the squad needs another striker to provide competition and support for Harry Kane. 

Dost would certainly fit the bill and the report suggests the 31-year-old would be available for around £5.5 million. 

Tottenham would be signing a proven goalscorer, with his strike record at previous club Sporting Lisbon in particular very impressive. 

Spurs’ reported pursuit of Bailey will interest the fans as the flying winger is one of the most-exciting young talents in German football. 

The report states Tottenham have Everton as competition for the wideman’s signature and that Leverkusen value him at around the £40 million mark. 

The North London club have until October 5 to reinforce Mourinho’s squad further, after the captures of Joe Hart, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Matt Doherty were announced earlier in the summer. 

Spurs are next back in action on Thursday night with a Europa League clash against Lokomotiv Plovdiv, with the side needing to get back to winning ways after a disappointing 1-0 defeat to Everton in the Premier League opener on Sunday afternoon.
