For many seasons Tottenham Hotspur have been heavily dependent on England captain Harry Kane for goals.
With the formation, they play under both Mauricio Pochettino and Jose Mourinho, there really is only room for one striker at White Hart Lane.
Since breaking into the side about six years ago, Harry Kane has featured in the majority of Tottenham’s Premier League matches, leaving a bit-part role for an understudy.
So who would want to fill that role at Tottenham Hotspur? Could it be something that Joshua King would fancy? According to reports, his agent has held talks with Tottenham.
talkSPORT reporter Alex Crook said…
“My understanding is Josh King’s agent flew over to London last week, so talks have begun with Tottenham, I think that’ll be a good move for Spurs because he’s someone who can provide backup to Harry Kane but can also play out wide, so he offers that versatility.
King is still under contract with AFC Bournemouth until July 2021, so the Cherries would still be looking for a decent fee for the Norwegian international.
Last month, it was reported that French side Paris Saint-Germain, Italian Serie A clubs Lazio and Roma and Newcastle United, Everton and Brighton & Hove Albion were all interested in a summer move.
Where will King be next season?
Bit of a pain if it is Spurs. We’ll get the bottom end of any range we were expecting.
Ideally, either Everton or West Ham want him and as a result, we get an extra £10m on top of whatever we ask. At least I’m pretty sure that’s how they operate, I can’t see any other explanation for their transfer history. – Join the conversation, click here.
