Three strikers Tottenham should target this summer

Ange Postecoglou and Tottenham Hotspur could have a very busy summer on their hands as the Australian tactician prepares for a potentially transformative summer transfer window.

In his first season in charge, Postecoglou has revitalised the club despite facing plenty of adversity, but there’s still one crucial aspect that needs to be addressed.

Harry Kane’s departure last summer cast a shadow of doubt on Tottenham’s future. The legendary striker’s goals had propelled the club for a decade, and finding an adequate replacement seemed insurmountable.

However, Postecoglou’s innovative tactical tweak has seen Son Heung-min and Richarlison step up in the goalscoring department, proving that Spurs can thrive even without Kane.

This doesn’t diminish the need for a long-term solution, and we eagerly speculate on potential signings who could fill the void left by the England captain, let’s take a look at some exciting options.

Ivan Toney

Brentford manager Thomas Frank has begrudgingly admitted that his star striker Ivan Toney could leave the club this summer, and the Bees have already landed a potential replacement.

That opens the door for Tottenham to swoop in, but we’re bound to face stiff competition from Premier League rivals Manchester United and Arsenal, who are also keen to secure his services.

The 27-year-old has already proven himself in the Premier League, notching 20 goals in 33 games last term before embarking on a hiatus for breaching betting rules.

However, since his return to action, Toney has picked up where he left off, netting four times in eight games and could be the striker that takes Postecoglou’s team to the next level.

Serhou Guirassy

VfB Stuttgart striker Serhou Guirassy has drawn plenty of attention, particularly from the Premier League, thanks to his relentless goalscoring performances in the Bundesliga.

The 27-year-old has bagged 20 goals in 18 games despite missing a chuck of the campaign due to injuries. What’s more enticing about a deal for Guirassy is his release clause that makes him available for just £17 million. 

There’s also interest from Man United and Arsenal, but if we move early, we could agree a deal in principle ahead of the summer transfer window.

Jonathan David

For a couple of years, Jonathan David has been repeatedly linked with a departure from Lille, and he has expressed a desire to ply his trade in the Premier League.

That plays into our hands, and we could get him for a bargain, considering he’ll be entering the final year of his contract with the French outfit at the end of the season.

David continues to be the central figure in Lille’s attack, racking up 17 goals in 33 appearances this term. His versatility adds to the appeal as he can slot in seamlessly on the left flank.
