Tottenham linked with bid for goal machined dubbed "the next Davor Suker"

Tottenham have been linked with a January move to sign Rijeka striker Andrej Kramaric.

It's fair to say that Tottenham's season so far hasn't gone according to plan.

The arrival of manager Mauricio Pochettino from Southampton was supposed to stabilise the club after a disappointing season last term, which saw them finish sixth and go through two managers.

Yet so far, the chaos at White Hart Lane has continued, with four home defeats already and just 14 points on the board from 11 games.

There have been rumours of dressing room unrest (again), and speculation suggests that Pochettino will lead a full-scale overhaul of the playing staff in January and next summer.

The likes of Kyle Naughton, Vlad Chiriches, Paulinho, Mousa Dembele, Andros Townsend, Aaron Lennon, Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado have all been linked with imminent exits from White Hart Lane as Pochettino looks to mould his own squad.

If Adebayor and Soldado do indeed leave the club, Pochettino must work hard to bring in a striker or two, and the Daily Star suggest that Croatian scoring sensation Andrej Kramaric could be a target.

The 23-year-old has smashed 27 goals in just 25 games for Rijeka, and those goalscoring exploits have attracted interest from Inter and AC Milan to name but a few.

Having been compared to former Arsenal striker Davor Suker by Croatia boss Nico Kovac, Kramaric is tipped for the top, and with a release clause of around £4m, it's little wonder why clubs are queuing up to sign him.

Tottenham will have to fight hard to sign Kramaric, but playing for the national team alongside former Spurs star Luka Modric could work in their favour, as the diminutive midfielder would surely recommend a move to White Hart Lane.

With 27 goals and at just £4m, Kramaric would be a low-risk player with potential who could prove to be a bargain for Tottenham.
