Boss Jose Mourinho has admitted that landing another striker is on the cards before the end of the summer transfer window, and they have been linked with the likes of Crystal Palace’s Alexander Sorloth – on loan at Trabzonspor – Metz’s Habib Diallo and Frankfurt’s Bas Dost.
Given their lack of plenty funds, Tottenham’s preference will be an experienced target man, and Weghorst fits the bill.
The 6ft 6in striker can always offer Mourinho a plan B should there be a need to go direct, and it will be interesting to see if they can get a deal over the line.
Convincing Weghorst to agree to play second fiddle to Kane could prove daunting as he is an undisputed starter at Wolfsburg, and that has always been the issue with several of Tottenham’s striking targets.
The North Londoners can’t afford to continue the campaign without signing another striker given the number of games they will be playing, and landing Weghorst will be huge.
