Mauricio Pochettino saw a number of his attacking options fail to impress in 2014/15, and after seeing his side draw a blank in their opening Premier League fixture, albeit away at Manchester United, the Argentine manager has set his sights on quality additions.
Goal state that Tottenham are hopeful of completing the signing of Lyon’s Clinton N’Jie in a £10.6m, deal which could be aided by the fact that the Ligue 1 side have tied down top-scorer Alexandre Lacazette to a new contract (via ESPN).
The speedy Cameroon international impressed last season and the 21-year-old would offer Pochettino a fresh youthful option in the final third.
Tottenham are also set to make an official bid for Manchester United forward Javier Hernandez, with Goal claiming that West Ham are also tracking the 27-year-old Mexican international, who spent last season out on loan at Real Madrid. The website report that the Mexican hitman could be acquired for £10 million.
Hernandez has a good grounding of Premier League experience, and when called upon by his Old Trafford side, the Guadalajara-born ace has been a regular goal-scorer.
The final target outlined by Goal comes in the form of West Brom youngster Saido Berahino, with this source stating that Spurs are willing to pay £15m for the Baggies forward, someway below the club’s £25m price-tag.
Moves to bring in strikers to strengthen the Tottenham attack are not surprising given that the likes of Roberto Soldado, Emmanuel Adebayor and Erik Lamela managed just five Premier League goals between them in 2014/15.
