Tottenham Hotspur certainly have plenty of strength in the attacking department, but they require some extra bodies in order to maintain their progress next season.
Mauricio Pochettino has Harry Kane and Son Heung-min at his disposal, but it seems that another Premier League forward has attracted his attention.
According to The Mirror transfer blog (13:16 entry), the North London outfit are keeping a close eye on Everton attacker Ademola Lookman.
The 20-year-old joined the Toffees from Charlton Athletic last year, but struggled to hold down a regular spot in the team.
In fact, the England Under-21 international was sent out on loan to Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig for the second half of last season.
In the 2017-18 campaign, Lookman scored seven goals, with five being netted in the German division.
Pochettino has a record of helping young talent thrive, and judging by the reaction to the reports, many Tottenham fans think that Lookman would be a decent addition to the squad.
Others, though, are frustrated that Spurs are continuing to be linked to players but are yet to recruit a signing.
Expressed an interest FC.

Can we stop expressing interest and actually sign someone

Do something instead of expressing interest

He is a very special footballer and a massive talent. With Poch’s treatment he could be a worldie. Trust me

Lookman would be brilliant under Poch

At this point the number of players “targeted” as claimed by press is greater than the available slots on the team.
