Spurs striker hunt continues

Tottenham’s hunt for another striker continues.

Jose Mourinho wants to sign a back-up for Harry Kane before deadline day, and his Spurs side have been linked with a host of names.

The latest two are Bournemouth’ Josh King and Swiss striker Haris Seferovič, who plays for Benfica.

King is a proven goal scorer in the Premier League having averaged a goal very three games for the South Coast side since signing from Blackburn in 2015, and their relegation at the end of last season.

He almost joined Manchester United in January, but Bournemouth’s reluctance to let him leave saw them turn to Odion Ighalo instead.

Bournemouth have made it clear that they will not stand in the way of any of their players who want to leave the club, and former strike partner Callum Wilson has since joined Newcastle, ironically netting the penalty that earned the Magpies a highly contentious point against Spurs in Sunday.

Meanwhile, they are also looking at a loan move for Seforović. He scored nine goals and provided five assists for Benfica last season, helping them to a second-place finish in the Primeira Liga. He has previously played for Eintracht Frankfurt, Fiorentina, and Real Sociedad.
