According to an exclusive from The Express, Tottenham Hotspur are interested in Borussia Dortmund striker Paco Alcacer.
The same outlet explains that Jose Mourinho would like to sign at least three players before the January transfer window closes this week since Spurs’ only reinforcement so far has been Benfica’s Gedson Fernandes.
Express also go on to state that Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale remains Spurs’ primary target and that the clubs are currently discussing a potential permanent deal.
However, Borussia Dortmund’s Paco Alcacer is among some of their other options, with Mario Gotze a possibility as well, as they still need a striker to fill Harry Kane’s void following his injury.
From Borussia Dortmund’s point of view, it’s easy to see why they could sanction this deal and let the Spanish international leave for the Premier League.
After all, their newest signing, Erling Braut Haaland, is already firing on all cylinders having scored five goals in his first two games for the German outfit.
But equally it’s easy to forget Alcacer has been extremely unlucky with injuries yet still managed to bag seven goals across all competitions in 2019/20.
Maybe keeping the 26-year-old centre-forward as the more experienced man in that role, and also someone who can be a strong option within the squad, would not be such a bad idea.
Let’s not forget that he scored five goals and assisted one in the first six Bundesliga games before injuries stopped his excellent run, so he definitely still has a lot to offer Dortmund.
