Liverpool striker Divock Origi and Chelsea man Michy Batshuayi are among the suggestions from Jermaine Jenas for Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham Hotspur.
The former Tottenham midfielder has also suggested that the North London outfit should bring Malcom from Barcelona if the 21-year-old attacker is available.
Jenas has also said that Chelsea duo Michy Batshuayi – who is a £40 million January target for Everton, according to The Sun – and Alvaro Morata could be the kind of players who could help Spurs in their current time of need.
Star striker Harry Kane is injured at the moment, and Son Heung-min is away on international duty with South Korea at the Asian Cup, meaning that Tottenham are a bit light upfront.
Jenas wrote in The Daily Mail: “Of course, it’s difficult to get the right player right now. Unfortunately Chelsea won’t be offering a helping hand as Michy Batshuayi would be the sort of player who could help. Or even Alvaro Morata.
“Spurs may have to bring forward some of their plans for the summer. So, although more of a wide player, if the Brazilian Malcom is available from Barcelona, bring him in. Or Divock Origi, who seems to be wasting away at Liverpool.”
Need for a striker
Tottenham do have Fernando Llorente, but the Spanish striker has failed to do much of note during his time at the North London outfit so far.
While the likes of Origi and Batshuayi will be good signings for Spurs in the short term, it is hard to see Chelsea and Liverpool help rivals Tottenham.
After all, Spurs are still in the race for the Premier League title and Chelsea will see them as their rivals for the top four.
