Three strikers that must be on Spurs’ radar this summer
Injury to Harry Kane – for the second time this season – has forced Spurs to rejig their front line. The inability of Vincent Janssen to find the net has been an issue, but fortunately the quality and versatility of Heung-Min Son has helped Mauricio Pochettino out. Pochettino has been protective of Janssen at times and was clearly pleased with his efforts on Sunday, but in all likelihood, Spurs will be active in the striker market again this summer.
With their eye on a more successful Champions League jaunt and needing to keep pace with the expected waves of investment from their wealthier Premier League rivals, Spurs cannot leave themselves at risk of such reliance on Kane once again. Pochettino will know this as well as anyone, regardless of his positivity about the goal-shy Janssen.
It won’t be Antoine Griezmann, Diego Costa or Romelu Lukaku, but Spurs can still find more than serviceable Kane backups without spending a grotesque amount of money. The options are out there, they just need to avoid another Soldado or Janssen.
