Tottenham invested heavily over the summer as they tried to fill the void left by Gareth Bale, and while they have filled his place in midfield they are seriously missing his goal scoring exploits.
Although new signing Roberto Soldado has been more than promising, the side do at times look short of a striker.We’ve taken a look at some of the strikers Spurs may look towards in the coming transfer windows, just to whet the appetite of any football transfer betting fans out there…
The diminutive striker is Tottenham’s main target and many believe the Mexican would be open to a move to London. With Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie ahead of him in the Manchester United pecking order it is rumoured that he wants to leave. He wants to be firing on all cylinders for the 2014 World Cup and although United boss David Moyes doesn’t want to sell the striker, he may be able to force through a £15million move.
There has been a lot of talk that Spurs may try and sign Benteke in January. There can be no doubting Benteke’s quality; last season his goals alone kept Aston Villa up. Paddy Power price Benteke at 25/1 to be the league’s top scorer but if he were to move to Tottenham expect those odds to tumble. Signing Benteke midway through the season would not be easy as Villa are financially sound and not willing to sell a star player. If Villas-Boas turns towards Benteke then he will need to shell out well over £25million. A move for Benteke is doubtful at best.
Stephen El Shaarawy
The 20-year-old has fallen out of favour at AC Milan and would fit the Tottenham mantra perfectly. El Shaarawy impressed last season but has seen his game time marginalized since the arrival of Mario Balotelli and is rumoured to want out. With a credible goal scoring record and plenty of years left in him, Tottenham would be very interested in bringing him to North London. If they can stump up the required £25million then Shaarawy could well be heading to the Lane.
