Tottenham Hotspur are being linked with a number of striking options at present. With Harry Kane absent through injury the club’s slim options in the striking position have again come to the fore.
MARCA have suggested Atletico Madrid striker Nikola Kalinic could be an option for the club. He is struggling for regular playing time at the Wanda Metropolitano.
But should Tottenham instead look at a fellow Croatian who they have been linked with in the past?
The player in question is Ante Rebic.
The Eintracht Frankfurt man was sensational at the World Cup in the summer. Capable of playing anywhere across the front-three he was soon linked with a host of top European clubs.
Tottenham were one such interested party. As reported by The Sun, Tottenham considered a £26 million move for the player in the summer.
Rebic, however, stuck by the German side and has continued to show good form this season. After recovering from a hip problem he has scored six goals and provided three assists in 13 Bundesliga appearances this term.
His form looks to be on the up after the winter break, with a goal and assist in the 3-1 win over Freiburg at the weekend.
He would suit the versatility that Mauricio Pochettino will no doubt crave from any more forward additions, whilst also providing adequate cover for Kane. Rekindling this £26 million interest could be a brilliant piece of business from Spurs.
