Tottenham Hotspur should seriously consider a move for the Newcastle United front-man.

Tottenham Hotspur Manager Mauricio Pochettino during the Pre-Season Friendly match between Tottenham Hotspur and Juventus on August 5, 2017 in London, England.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino will surely be looking to bolster his options during the January transfer window, with his side experiencing arguably their most challenging period since he took over as manager in May 2014.

One particular area where the Argentine will want to strengthen is his forward department, with Harry Kane proving to be Tottenham's only real threat through the middle.

The Lilywhites have become far too predictable to play against, and they are finding it extremely hard to break down teams who play with 10 men behind the ball.

With this in mind, the addition of a creative, skilful forward will surely feature highly on Pochettino's agenda, and a useful option for Spurs could be Magpies ace Ayoze Perez.

Pochettino has become renowned for getting the best out of players during his time in management, and he would surely relish the opportunity to work with the Spaniard.

The 24-year-old joined Newcastle from Tenerife in the summer of 2014, for a bargain fee of just £1 million, but he has failed to live up to his reputation, although he undoubtedly possesses an abundance of talent - he just hasn't showcased it consistently enough.

Perez is a wonderfully cultured and gifted footballer, and operates in an intricate manner. The ease in which he travels with the ball, and his ability to pick out a killer pass would make him the ideal addition to Tottenham's front-line.

He would be the ideal foil for Harry Kane, and the pair could strike up a formidable partnership.

Fernando Llorente has failed to impress during his time in north London, and Pochettino should seriously go down the route of bringing a different type striker to the club.

And if he manages to bring Perez to Spurs, it could turn out to be a signing of real significance for the club.
