Wembley performance shows why Tottenham Hotspur should move for Jamie Vardy

Tottenham Hotspur need more striking options and Jamie Vardy would be perfect for the job.

Tottenham Hotspur played out their final game at Wembley in quite dramatic style against Leicester City this afternoon.

Spurs eventually came away with the win, but only after plenty of frights from the Foxes in a 5-4 win.

One player who was immense for the away side was England international striker Jamie Vardy. He scored twice as he continued another fine season with Leicester City.

Vardy took his tally to 24 goals this season in 47 appearances for club and country, a magnificent return from the 31-year-old.

Meanwhile, Harry Kane also bagged a brace for Spurs, leading many to ask whether the pair should be partnered for England at this summer’s World Cup.

Well, Tottenham should not be asking themselves that, but instead whether Vardy would be the answer to their problems in the striking department.

Whilst Kane is a goal-machine for Spurs, finding a suitable back-up for the player has been difficult. Vincent Janssen and Fernando Llorente have both failed to meet up to the standards necessary.

So why not move for Vardy instead. The 31-year-old has proven over three seasons now that he can score goals in the Premier League and not only that, he would offer something slightly different from Kane.

Not only could he be the main back-up to the main man, but pairing the two as a strikeforce could see Tottenham being devastating up front.

Whilst Vardy is happy at Leicester, the opportunity to once again play Champions League football will undoubtedly appeal to his competitive nature. To do so with so many of his England colleagues in Tottenham’s would be a major lure.

Daniel Levy and Mauricio Pochettino bucked the trend by signing a veteran last summer with Llorente’s arrival and got burned but that should not put them off the idea of bringing in Vardy.

He would be costly, but could bring Tottenham the extra dimension up top they need to mount a sustained challenge for silverware after yet another impressive but barren season.

After his performance today, making a move for Vardy should make perfect sense to Tottenham.
