Fabrizio Romano reveals Tottenham is ready to pursue a striker in 2022
By Eddie Razo -

Tottenham Hotspur had their eyes on a striker to provide some support for Harry Kane. Various names surfaced that the north London-based club expressed interest in, whether it was Lautaro Martínez or Dušan Vlahović. 

However, no move for a striker materialized, but it doesn’t mean that Tottenham isn’t ready to begin its search again. According to Italian football journalist Fabrizio Romano, who stated on his Here We Go Podcast, the Premier League side eyes a striker for next summer. 

Romano states that Managing Director of Football Fabio Paratici decided to pull out of pursuing a striker due to the inflation of prices. For example, Chelsea FC paid a club-record €115 million (£97.5 million) for Romelu Lukaku. 

“It’s important for Tottenham fans to understand that Paratici is always thinking long term… Pape Sarr is one for the future. Emerson [Royal], he is one for the future; they’re already convinced by him,” Romano said.

“They’re already looking at potential strikers for summer 2022. This summer, they had the chance to sign a striker as a backup for Harry Kane, but they were not convinced by some players, so they decided to save their money and invest next summer on the right player. This is Paratici’s style and mentality.”

It seems as though Tottenham didn’t want to pay any price they deemed outrageous. The English club will look to pounce early on any striker they have their eyes on and not wait for any club to inflate the striker market.

So no back up for kane yet againWhy does Paratici think this is not a priority?

It now seems that Kane will not be going to City as they have revised their requirement..Do we have a disgruntled player on our hands again,who will also have a dwindling sell on value.

If the stories about Kane sgning a new contract with a release clause,who will benefit?If City don’t want him who else is likely to cough up the inflated value Levy will still put on his head.

I see this ending with Kane seeing out the rest of his contract and leaving for nothing,but with no honours to his name.I don’t see Nuno delivering on that.

This reminds me of one of those scenes from one of those films in which someone is keeping someone else talking on the phone long enough for them to work out where they’re calling from.

“One for the future” just what every sane Spurs fan wants to hear when they have been stuffed by Palace.
Where did Danny Ings end up?
