Tottenham should target Lazio striker Ciro Immobile this summer

The Italian could be the ideal accompaniment for Harry Kane.

Italian striker Ciro Immobile is quietly having one of the best goal-scoring seasons in Europe, bagging a superb 29 goals in Serie A for Lazio to date.

This remarkable goal tally puts the 28-year-old level with Lionel Messi, ahead of the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Robert Lewandowski, and just two behind Mohamed Salah.

Immobile is well on his way to setting Serie A goalscoring records and would be a fantastic signing for Tottenham Hotspur in the summer.

A player of Immobile’s calibre should be guaranteed consistent Champions League football, but currently, Lazio face a fight to the wire to secure qualification in the league.

Just one point ahead of Inter Milan in the race for fourth, the capital club’s European status next season is very much up in the air.

A move to north London would bring secure Champions League football for the prolific striker, as Spurs sit a commanding five points ahead of Chelsea with just four matches to play.

In addition, Immobile would provide Spurs with the cutting edge the club needs to take the next step up and truly challenge for trophies in the 2018/19 season.

Tottenham frustratingly lost to Manchester United in the FA Cup semi-final on the weekend, adding to their League Cup and Champions League woes.

Star striker Harry Kane was notably ineffective against United, leading many to wonder if Spurs should invest in a top-class alternative or strike partner for the Englishman.

Ciro Immobile would be the perfect complement to Kane, as both possess tremendous finishing qualities and are lethal in front of goal.

The Lazio man crucially does not shy away from the big occasion, registering a brace against Juventus and a hat-trick against AC Milan this season.

A strike force of Harry Kane and Ciro Immobile would be a stunning coup for Tottenham Hotspur.

If Spurs can secure the services of Europe’s second-best striker, then the club might just collect its first trophy in a decade next season.
