13 goals in 10 games: Ciro Immobile would be superb for Tottenham

Ciro Immobile of Italy looks on prior to the training session at Italy club's training ground at Coverciano on October 4, 2017 in Florence, Italy.

The Lazio ace could be just the man to help fire Tottenham Hotspur to glory this season.

Mauricio Pochettino, manager of Spurs looks on prior to the Pre-Season Friendly match beween Tottenham Hotspur and Juventus at Wembley Stadium on August 5, 2017 in London, England.

Spurs have begun their 2017/18 campaign in impressive fashion, both home and abroad, but there is still a nagging doubt regarding whether or not Mauricio Pochettino's squad is strong enough to sustain a challenge for major honours on all fronts this season.

One particular area of concern for the Argentine will be his forward department, with Harry Kane proving to be more-or-less irreplaceable, and only 32-year-old Fernando Llorente in reserve in the centre-forward position.

With this in mind, Tottenham will surely be prioritising the acquisition of a high quality forward in January, if they are to truly challenge for the Premier League title and the Champions League, and a useful option for them could be Lazio hitman Ciro Immobile.

The Italian has been in absolutely sensational form for the Biancazzurri so far this season, banging in 13 goals in 10 outings, and he would undoubtedly bring a certain level of added competition to the Lilywhites' front-line.

The former Borussia Dortmund striker possesses all of the attributes required to be a success in the Premier League. He is strong when in possession, comfortable playing with his back to goal, and is clinical when presented with a goalscoring opportunity.

Whilst Kane will always be Spurs' number one forward, Immobile's arrival in north London would provide Pochettino with the option of playing two strikers through the middle.

He would also provide adequate cover for the England international, during what is an extremely long and physically punishing campaign.

And if Pochettino does manage to bring the Lazio man to the club in January, it could turn out to be a signing of real significance for Tottenham.
