As they continue to search for a capable striker who can cover for the goals that Harry Kane provides when he is not in the team, Tottenham is set to make a move for a Serie A striker Patrick Schick, according to SportWitness.
The Lilywhites have been linked with a number of forwards ahead of a transfer window that Jose Mourinho hopes will solve his backup striker problem.
The report from Sports Witness is also claiming that Tottenham face competition for the Czech strikers signature from their bitter rivals Arsenal.
Schick struggled to get game time at AS Roma and he joined RB Leipzig last summer on a season-long loan deal.
He has been in fine form for the Germans and they have the option to make his loan deal permanent for a fee.
However, the report states that Leipzig appears reluctant to pay the agreed-upon fee and Roma is now looking to shop him around and get the best value that they can make from his sale.
Spurs need a new striker who can become trusted for goals like Fernando Llorente did so well during his time with the club.
However, their spending would also be affected by the coronavirus pandemic and it remains unclear if they can meet Roma’s asking price for Schick which has been set at 29 million Euros according to the same report.
