Tottenham and Manchester United have been offered the chance to sign Borussia Dortmund striker Paco Alcacer, according to 90Min.
Both clubs are set to be without their main striker for some time. Harry Kane is out until April for Spurs and Marcus Rashford will miss three months with a stress fracture in his back.
The Spaniard is set to fall down the pecking order following Dortmund sealing a deal for Erling Haaland.
Alcacer has netted seven goals this season from 15 appearances, although he has only started six times in the Bundesliga.
The report suggests that the striker is open to the idea of leaving the German giants this month and has been offered to the Premier League duo.
Haaland had a debut to remember for Dortmund on Saturday, scoring a hat-trick within 23 minutes of coming onto the field as a substitute.
Tottenham would surely welcome the chance to sign a player boasting the pedigree of Alcacer.
Jose Mourinho’s team haven’t scored for three straight games in the Premier League and are struggling in Kane’s absence.
Alcacer signed for Dortmund from Barcelona in 2018, costing £22.7 million (BBC).
The 26-year-old has scored goals wherever he has played and it will be interesting to see if either top-flight club takes Dortmund up on their offer.
TBR View – Alcacer could lift struggling Spurs
This gesture from Dortmund could be just the tonic for Tottenham who have struggled of late.
Spurs are down in eighth, eight points behind Chelsea who occupy fourth in the Premier League table.
Alcacer is a natural-born goalscorer and that is exactly what Tottenham could do with during the current window.
If Dortmund don’t see a future for him then Mourinho should pounce on a player who could fire his side up the table.
