Spurs are in dire need of quality attacking options next season, specifically strikers to share the burden with Harry Kane.
Highly likely that Soldado and Adebayor will be sold, if not, they are not good enough even as backup and Tottenham need a new face.
As published earlier, Tottenham made a concrete offer of $14m to secure the services of German international Max Kruse.
However, as per latest reports from renowned German Source Bild, the North Londoners have lost the race as the Borussia Monchengladbach striker has already agreed transfer to Bundesliga side Wolfsburg next summer.
With no Champions League football, Tottenham will find it hard to sign a quality striker and Kruse was a decent option that they have missed out on.
Harry Kane cannot single handedly help Spurs qualify for top 4 next season. Tottenham must act swiftly in the transfer window and target striker before other clubs snatch them.
