Tottenham to launch late £15m bid for Newcastle United forward

Posted by

Tottenham are readying a £15m bid for Newcastle United forward Ayoze Perez according to the Daily Mail.

White Hart Lane boss Mauricio Pochettino has had to overly rely upon England international Harry Kane over the past year and would do well to bring in an additional striker before the transfer window closes.

The likes of Roberto Soldado, now at Villarreal, Emmanuel Adebayor and Erik Lamela all failed to offer sufficient goal-scoring support to Kane last term but fortunately the 22-year-old was able to rack-up an impressive tally of 31 goals in all competitions.

This season Kane has looked tired and is yet to net, and Tottenham are without a win from their opening four Premier League fixtures of the season.

Newcastle United signed Ayoze Perez from Tenerife last June and the cultured attacker has become something cult hero with his strong-running displays endearing himself to the club’s supporters.

Perez scored seven goals in 25 Premier League starts last season, including efforts against Tottenham, Liverpool and Arsenal, but has started just one of Newcastle United’s four domestic league fixtures this term.

Pochettino has brought in Clinton N’Jie and Son Heung-min, from Lyon and Bayer Leverkusen respectively, in recent days but the Argentine manager appears to still feel he needs reinforcements to boost his options in the final third.
