With the Premier League season less than a week ago, Tottenham still haven’t resolved the problem of signing a centre-forward to compete with their talisman Harry Kane.
Spurs have one of Europe’s most potent strikers in England captain Kane, but there is no senior cover in his position right now and the squad desperately needs strengthening in that area of the pitch.
Kane can’t be relied upon to start every single fixture despite his brilliance and his injury last year highlighted how short the North London club are in that area.
Manager Jose Mourinho needs to try force a move for a striker before the window closes and one man that he should consider is Valencia’s Maxi Gomez.
According to the Telegraph, Premier League side Everton have made an enquiry about Gomez and Spanish top-flight side Valencia could be prepared to offload him for under £13million due to financial pressure.
The 24-year-old striker isn’t blessed with great pace, but he’s a physical presence that is a threat around the penalty area and is strong in the air.
He joined Valencia a year ago from Celta Vigo and managed 10 goals and four assists during his debut season at the Mastalla.
Uruguay international Gomez has previously been linked with Spurs, as in May 2019 the Daily Star reported that they wanted Gomez when he was still at Celta Vigo to become Kane’s understudy.
His record of 40 goals in 104 La Liga appearances proves he’s a consistent goalscorer and aged 24 he should only keep improving, so Spurs should seriously consider challenging Everton for the South American forward this summer.
