Spurs reportedly eyeing January move for striker likened to Haaland, out of contract in summer

Tottenham Hotspur have a fair bit of work to do in the January transfer window after an underwhelming first half of the season.

Antonio Conte’s Spurs have struggled for consistency and delivered far too many disappointing displays.

But with the World Cup bringing the season to a half, Tottenham can take stock and plan for the January window.

According to 90Min, Spurs are focusing on reinforcements at right wing-back and up front.

Son Heung-min, Dejan Kulusevski and Richarlison have all picked up up injuries so far this season.

Therefore, Conte is apparently looking to bolster his attacking ranks, albeit as back-up.

And 90Min claims Blackburn Rovers striker Ben Brereton Diaz is on the Spurs radar.

Tottenham target Brereton Diaz – factfile

The 23-year-old has enjoyed a real rise over the past two years.

He has become a prolific goalscorer in the Championship and has also become a star for Chile. 

Brereton Diaz enjoyed a superb campaign last time out, scoring 22 goals in 37 Championship outings for Rovers.

This season, the 6ft 1in ace has 10 goals and one assist from 22 outings in all competitions.

For Chile, Brereton Diaz has four goals from 14 caps.

A number of fans on Twitter have even compared him to the likes of KaneThierry Henry, and Erling Braut Haaland.

Brereton Diaz would certainly fit the bill in terms of being a back-up to Kane.

He knows English football inside out, is physical and prolific, can play across the whole front line, and wouldn’t break the bank.

And at Tottenham, he can learn from the very best in Kane, Son, Richarlison and Kulusevski.

Dubbed an ‘extraordinary‘ striker by former Rovers manager Tony Mowbray, Brereton Diaz is made for the Premier League.
