Harry Kane is set to be sidelined until March, leaving a major void in Tottenham Hotspur’s attack.
With Son Heung-Min also missing – due to Asia Cup duty – Tottenham desperately need a striker.
According to The Mirror, Tottenham could now enter the race for Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson, with Chelsea and West Ham also keen.
And when Wilson weighs up his options this month, surely the chance to join Spurs would be a tempting offer.
With Kane out injured for two months, he knows he will get starting game time, and he can help Spurs compete for silverware.
Mauricio Pochettino is renowned for nurturing talent and getting the best out of his players so Wilson’s game could improve with a switch to North London.
The once-capped England international has been in sensational form for Bournemouth this season, scoring 10 times in 23 games – including nine Premier League goals.
But Wilson is not just a goal scorer – his all-round game is unselfish and he has contributed with five assists this season.
Although he is not an upgrade on Kane, Wilson is the ideal back-up striker at Tottenham and a more than adequate filler during the injury.
Bournemouth will demand £75m for the former Coventry City striker, according to The Daily Star.
At this price, Tottenham should avoid the 26-year-old but if they can drive the price down, then Wilson could be a shrewd acquisition.
