Football.London’s Alasdair Gold has revealed that Tottenham Hootspur could make a surprise this transfer window by landing a striker that they have not been linked with so far.
Few names have been linked with a move to Spurs over the past few weeks, with Paston Daka also emerging as a potential target. Reports since then have claimed the Zambian international is keen to stay at RB Salzburg (Evening Standard) but Gold has now said that Tottenham have not given up hopes of landing the 21-year-old this summer.
He revealed that there was also truth to Spurs’ rumoured interest in Arkadiusz Milik and Habib Diallo but suggested that the Lilywhites could be working on signing another striker under the radar.
When asked if Spurs still held an interest in Daka, he said during a Q and A: “He’s one of a few strikers Spurs have on their shortlist.
“He’s a talented young player but there’s plenty of interest in him and we know Tottenham don’t go in for auctions.
“He and Habib Diallo are definitely strikers Spurs have looked closely at as is Milik at Napoli, although his wages are an issue.
“Don’t rule out someone from left field. Tottenham prefer to operate quietly to prevent a battle.”
