Jose Mourinho is considering a move to bring former Manchester City striker Edin Džeko to White Hart Lane in January.
The Tottenham manager is keen to alleviate the burden on Harry Kane as the club’s main striker, with teenager Troy Parrott currently the only available option to the England captain.
And now he has identified 34-year old Džeko, who moved to Roma from City four years ago, and has since established a reputation as one of the most reliable and consistent goal-scorers in Serie A.
He signed a new two year contract with Roma in the summer, but Mourinho is convinced that he still has the necessary fitness to play in the Premier League again, having had scouts watch him in action for his club last week.
The Bosnian international scored 50 goals in 130 appearances for City between 2011 and 2015, helping them win two Premier League titles, the FA Cup and the League Cup.
Andy is an exiled English football fan living in Cyprus. He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
