Although there’s still some way to go this season, Mauricio Pochettino and his increasingly entertaining Tottenham Hotspur outfit have certainly served to impress so far this term, and could potentially even go on to record a truly outstanding finish with just a little bit of luck on their side.
Harry Kane has once again proven a real asset in front of goal for Spurs and Pochettino’s entire back-line have been in very strong form of late – and as current Juventus striker and Spanish international, Alvaro Morata, has reportedly raised a great deal of interest in and around White Hart Lane this season – maybe Tottenham could find themselves looking far stronger across the board before the close of the January transfer window.
But is this just another case of loose paper talk and pure speculation at best, or could Tottenham Hotspur really land Alvaro Morata at some stage this winter?

Although the 23-year-old Spanish hitman represented one of the hottest young prospects in Europe this time last season, Spurs could theoretically make Morata theirs in the not too distant future – even if certain reports have already cast doubt over Juventus’ desire to part ways with the centre-forward.
The former Real Madrid youngster has impressed during his spell in the Italian Serie A – and as some sections of the White Hart Lane faithful certainly expect to see their side operating within the illustrious realms of Champions League football next season, maybe Mauricio Pochettino would be wise to up his game in the transfer market sooner rather than later.
Whilst Harry Kane has successfully maintained his strong goal-scoring form throughout the majority of the 2015/16 campaign thus far, Spurs are arguably one injury away from serious derailment up-top this term.
Heung-Min Son can in-fact provide Tottenham with adequate back-up on his day, but as the South Korean international simply doesn’t represent an out-in-out centre-forward right in the here and now, Pochettino seemingly needs to add to his striking department one way or another down at White Hart Lane this January.
Alvaro Morata could therefore provide the perfect option for Tottenham, even if his current employers may indeed want to hold onto his potentially exciting services for at least a little while longer. On the back of his stark composure in one-on-one situations and keen ability to find the back of the net at crucial stages in the match – this is a player who could easily thrive within the Premier League some day.
The ex-Bernabeu favourite would also seemingly suit playing alongside the current Spurs ranks this season – for although several other English teams have spent a great deal more than their counterparts down in North London this term – Tottenham still possess one of the strongest looking squads throughout the entire league.
However, as the Spaniard wouldn’t likely be interested in any deal failing to offer guaranteed first team football this January, maybe this move admittedly feels a tad doubtful. Alvaro Morata doesn’t have an abundance of league goals to his name in 2015/16 after all, and after dropping significantly down the pecking order at Juventus in recent weeks, it seems all is not currently well for this reported Spurs target.
There are no guarantees that Morata would even make it in the Premier League. The 23-year-old Spanish international can certainly prove effective on occasion with all things considered, but he wouldn’t exactly go down as the most powerful or aerially gifted striker the Premier League has ever witnessed either.
All in all then – this is a player who could very well represent a massive gamble for Tottenham in the not too distant future, but as Mauricio Pochettino’s side arguably need to capture a fresh new striking option above all else this January, maybe Alvaro Morata could possibly arrive as a risk worth taking.
