Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly scouting former Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko, according to The Mirror.
The report claims that the Bosnia-Herzegovina striker is considered by Jose Mourinho as a potentially perfect back-up option to current number one striker Harry Kane.
Mourinho believes that Kane is under too much pressure as the only senior striking option at Spurs and wants Dzeko as ‘an insurance policy’.
The 33-year-old is still a regular at current side Roma and scored 50 Premier League goals in his four-and-a-half seasons in England. This season, the experienced striker has scored eight goals in 19 games for the Giallorossi.
This would certainly be a shock transfer move from Tottenham. In the past, the club’s chairman Daniel Levy has been reticent to bringing in player’s of Dzeko’s ilk and his arrival would certainly break that mould.
He would also not come cheap. Dzeko signed a new contract at Roma in August tieing him to the capital club until 2022.
So Tottenham would have to spend big to lure the striker away from Serie A.
