Report: Tottenham were willing to meet demands for Spanish striker

By Eddie Razo -

Tottenham Hotspur wanted to bring in a striker to help their squad contribute more goals to lessen their dependence on Harry Kane and Son Heung-min. However, the north London club could not land a striker during the January transfer window. 

Nonetheless, The Times reports that Spurs were willing to meet Atlético de Madrid’s demands for Alvaro Morata late in the transfer window. Furthermore, Tottenham did accelerate discussions with Atlético over a deal for the former Chelsea striker.

Tottenham was willing to accept the Spanish club’s demands of a guaranteed fee for Morata, but they were ‘unable to persuade the 29-year-old to join.

Juventus pair Dejan Kulusevski and Rodrigo Bentancour were Tottenham’s only two new acquisitions during the January window. Morata would’ve arrived in north London and played behind Kane, so perhaps being second on the depth chart didn’t sit well with him. 

Nonetheless, it seems that striker will be atop of Spurs transfer list heading into the summer.

He was hopeless in the EPL…rubbish in fact ..get a decent youngster in.
If all Paratici is going to do is raid Juventus he can do one .

The most he has ever scored in a season is 15. He’s not a top draw striker, but that is why we might have been linked. He has 17 major club honours. Harry Kane has none!

Is this the same Morata that we tried to take off R Madrid as part of the sale of Bale in 2013? Only 9 years late then, that’s probly quite snappy by Levy’s standards.

No doubt some players need a level of persuasion to make a move, but signing ones that want to come here is the crucial part of a transfer, the two in have been quoted as saying just that, Morata didn’t want it so thankfully it’s a bullet dodged.

Levy flapping about on deadline day and coming up empty handed. So what’s new?

Agreed…

…and why leave it so late to make a move?

In an ideal world I’d have signed Belotti on a free for next season. If Kane goes, we’ll need two CF’s, so getting one proven target man would lesson the stress.
