Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas will be backed by his board as he looks to strengthen his attack with a move for FC Porto striker Jackson Martinez according to the Daily Mirror.

Villas-Boas has seen summer signing Erik Lamela struggle to make an impact and whilst Roberto Soldado has scored four Premier League goals this season, three of them have come from the spot.

Indeed Tottenham have managed just nine goals in nine Premier League fixtures thus far this season so Villas-Boas is right to consider moves to bring in another striker in January.

Though Tottenham spent over £100m on new players over the summer they also raked in excess of £100m from player sales so finances will be made available to the club’s Portuguese boss as he seeks to secure that all important Champions League spot.

Villas-Boas helped FC Porto to a treble in his season in charge of the Primeira Liga side so could perhaps be able to convince his former club to sell Martinez, who scored 34 goals in his first season at the club and has already netted nine goals in ten matches this term.
