Desperate? Two high-profile free agent strikers Tottenham Hotspur could sign

Here are two strikers Tottenham could choose to sign as free agents.

Harry Kane's superb form continued in midweek with a brace against Norwich City, but questions remain as to whether Spurs have enough quality back-up for him.

They did not choose to sign a striker in the recent transfer window, but if he had suffered an injury in January then their actions could have been different. Should Kane be caused to miss action now, Tottenham are restricted to signing free agents, and there is a lack of quality on the market.

There are however two players who could potentially contribute, with Kane, or without...

Leandro Damiao

Brazilian striker Leandro Damiao is a free agent after his recent release by Cruzeiro. Sambafoot reported late last month he was pushing to land a move to Europe, with Sporting Lisbon one possible destination.

Damiao is a familiar name to Spurs fans because he was a player they were interested in signing several seasons ago, when he was starring in the same Internacional side as Sandro, with Andre Villas-Boas later admitting to trying to sign him in 2013, reported The Guardian.

He impressed as top scorer for the Brazil team at the Olympics at 2012, but he failed to make the 2014 World Cup squad. The 26-year-old scored a staggering 41 goals in 53 games in 2011, and scored 17 goals in all competitions in 44 games.


Former Real Madrid ace Robinho is a free agent after his contract with Chinese club Guangzhou Evergrande was mutually terminated. 

The 32-year-old is seeking a return to Europe, with the South Wales Evening Post reporting on transfer deadline day that he was offered to both Swansea City and Leicester City, who declined to do a deal due to his high wage demands.

It would be a surprise to see Spurs take the plunge on the former Manchester City ace and ex-Brazil international, but he is an intriguing name who might just have more to offer.
