Tottenham Hotspur have been urged to consider signing Sporting CP striker Viktor Gyokeres, even after the addition of Timo Werner this month.
Sporting signed Gyokeres from the Championship club Coventry City last summer in a noteworthy transfer deal, setting a record fee of €20 million for both clubs.
Since joining, the centre-forward has showed incredible form, racking up an impressive 22 goals and ten assists in just 25 appearances.
Sporting hold a considerably higher valuation for the player, and reportedly turned down a £73 million bid from Chelsea for him earlier this week.
According to Tottenham News, Spurs have been recommended to rival Chelsea to secure his services.
The report claims that a recruitment source close to the club believes that Gyokeres would be an even more suitable fit for Spurs than the recently signed Timo Werner on loan.
Tottenham are yet to find a replacement for the club’s all-time top scorer, Harry Kane, and Richarlison was their initial attempt to fill his shoes.
However, the Brazilian has not met the expected standard, prompting the club to contemplate a move for another top-class striker.
They have been linked with several other names as well, including Brentford’s Ivan Toney who marked his return from an 8-month ban with a goal against Nottingham Forest.
Another name linked with a move is Feyenoord’s Santiago Gimenez, who has 19 goals and 4 assists in 18 league games this season.
