Fernando Llorente's struggles at Tottenham have highlighted one thing - the lack of quality alternatives to Harry Kane.

Young talents Kazaiah Sterling and Shayon Harrison have yet to make the leap, and making another move in the transfer market would be sensible.

A player who should be on their radar is Sheffield Wednesday forward George Hirst, an 18-year-old England youth international.

Hirst is rated as one of England's brightest strikers, reported by The Liverpool Echo to be wanted by Everton.

He is the son of former Premier League striker David Hirst, but bizarrely he has fallen out with Sheffield Wednesday, who have refused to play him after he refused to sign a new contract.

The Leicester Mercury reported that Leicester, Manchester United, Arsenal and Newcastle are all keen on Hirst, while The Mail report Chelsea, West Ham and Leeds are keen.

Tottenham one of the top clubs who haven't been linked, but they would arguably be the best fit due to their track record of giving chances to young players.

Hirst would also get the opportunity to work alongside Harry Kane, and pick up the work ethic which has elevated the England international among the world's best.

The last time Tottenham signed a top youngster from the lower leagues it was Dele Alli, and Hirst's contract wrangle gives them an opportunity to bring in another.
