Tottenham have already failed to sign a striker in the past two transfer windows and manager Mauricio Pochettino must not waste more time in luring one this time around.
The North Londoners need massive improvements if they are to challenge the best of teams in the Europe’s elite competition next season. Hence, the strike-force dilemma must be solved this summer.
Swiss striker Breel Embolo has been linked with a move to White Hart Lane for quite some time. Even last year, Spurs were interested in securing his services (Goal).
Spurs finally have the chance to lure him as few days back, Basel sporting director confirmed that the 19-year-old forward will most likely be leaving the club this summer (Goal).
However, according to the reports (Football Insider), Tottenham have just one reservation over signing the €25.6 million rated striker.
Spurs think that the standard of Swiss Super League is not very high and they have concerns about signing a player directly from that league.
Top Swiss stars like Shaqiri (Stoke) and Xhaka (Arsenal) were developed by Basel as well and left the Swiss League to join German Bundesliga sides Bayern Munich and Bourssia Monchengladbach.
It will be absolutely baffling if Spurs consider not signing the talented forward for that one reason. We shall see how the transfer saga unfolds.
