Report: Tottenham would prefer to sign Bas Dost on loan

Tottenham Hotspur are hoping that they will be able to take Bas Dost on loan this summer, according to the Guardian.

Jose Mourinho is keen to add a striker to his ranks. And the Guardian reports that talks have been held with Eintracht Frankfurt over a potential move for the 31-year-old.

The report notes that the Bundesliga side want just £5.1 million for the Dutchman. However, Spurs are hoping to reach a different agreement with his club.

According to the Guardian, Tottenham would rather sign Dost on loan for the season. It is not yet clear whether Frankfurt would be willing to sanction a temporary exit for Dost.

TBR View: Agreement looks possible with two clubs not worlds apart

Dost boasts an outstanding career record. Since moving to Wolfsburg in 2012, he has scored 120 league goals in 193 games. His time in Sporting saw Dost score 76 league goals in just 84 appearances.

 

Crucially, he has shown that he can score goals in a number of leagues. That may perhaps make him a safer signing than a number of other players who have not previously played in the Premier League before.

And while Spurs and Frankfurt are reportedly seeking different deals, it would appear that reaching a compromise looks entirely possible.

The Bundesliga side are not asking for a significant transfer fee. So perhaps there may be scope for a deal that sees Spurs pay a loan fee that goes some way towards Frankfurt’s asking price for a permanent move.
