Tottenham in the hunt to sign Premier League forward

Jose Mourinho

Tottenham have an awful lot of work to do this summer but it won't be easy.

Having taken a loan of £175m from the government, their finances in the window will be restricted, and that's evident by their first arrival of the summer.

Per various reports, including The Telegraph, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is set to walk through the door for £15m. 

In today's market, for a player who is a Premier League regular, that's an absolute bargain. 

Daniel Levy's pursuit of the Dane has been a masterstroke but he will need to conduct similar sort of deals if Spurs want to come out of the transfer window a better team. 

However, spats between Jose Mourinho and Levy are unlikely to help.

GIVEMESPORT revealed this week that the pair are disagreeing over Tanguy Ndombele, an issue that could become a distraction throughout the window.

As a result, Tottenham are looking to get their business done quickly and they are already seeking their second acquisition of the summer.

The Express reported this week that Spurs are interested in signing Bournemouth's Callum Wilson.

The striker, who has been touted with a move to north London previously, is now valued at around £20m according to fresh claims from the newspaper.

Mourinho feels the 28-year-old is keen on moving to the capital and thus, sense they could drive the price down.

Bournemouth were relegated recently and have already lost Nathan Ake to the jaws of one of the Premier League's top six.

GIVEMESPORT'S Matt Dawson says...

The first problem with this deal is that would he be happy playing second fiddle to Harry Kane?

That's the question on everyone's lips when the club gets linked with a forward and it's a very viable one to ask.

That being said, there is a belief that the duo could appear upfront together.

Spurs usually utilise just one centre-forward, but Kane himself has spoken about potentially playing alongside Wilson before.

On international duty in March 2019, the England skipper remarked

"Yes, of course. It’s up to the manager but I feel I can play alongside any player."

Spurs' star man then went onto hail the impact Wilson has been making in the top-flight.

He added: "He has been doing great in the Premier League this season and over the past couple of seasons."

Kane is right too. Wilson became a crucial player for the Cherries and has proven himself to be a capable Premier League forward.

He netted nine times this season but found the net on 15 occasions in 2018/19. In total he has 41 Premier League strikes to his name.

As far as back-up forwards go, Wilson would be a fine addition for Tottenham.
