Premier League duo West Ham and Crystal Palace are reportedly keen on Bayern Munich striker Sandro Wagner, but should Tottenham join the chase for his signature?
According to the Sun, the Hammers and Palace are battling over the 30-year-old ahead of the January transfer window.
The report details West Ham want to try sign him for £6million, while Palace are keen on reinforcing their attacking options.
But Spurs’ long-term problem over finding a suitable back-up option to Harry Kane could be in the shape of the in-demand Bayern ace.
Wagner has scored 10 first-team goals since he re-signed for Bayern in January and may be the ideal centre-forward to support Kane in the squad.
Mauricio Pochettino needs someone in his squad he can turn to as a trustworthy alternative to Kane, which he doesn’t have right now in the shape of Fernando Llorente.
Wagner has filled the role well at Bayern as understudy to Robert Lewandowski, with several goals coming from roles off the bench.
He is an experienced striker that knows where the back of the net is and his aerial ability would give the North London club an extra dimension.
Wagner would be an absolute steal at around £6million for any team in England and that is why it could be worth Spurs joining the hunt for the Bundesliga marksman.
