With less than two weeks to go until the transfer window slams shut, time is running out for Spurs as they look to land a centre-forward capable of filling a Harry Kane-shaped void in the middle of Jose Mourinho’s attack.
Prospective deals for the likes of Krzysztof Piatek and Ze Luis appear to have stalled while Edinson Cavani, despite handing in a transfer request at PSG, looks very unlikely to end the month as a Spurs player.
So Alcacer might have just arrived on the scene like a manna from heaven.
90Min reports that both Dortmund and the player himself are open to the idea of a mid-season move to the Premier League with Tottenham and Manchester United offered the chance to sign the former Barcelona and Valencia hitman on loan.
One of the most lethal goal-poachers in Europe when fit, Alcacer has netted 23 goals in just 17 Bundesliga starts since he joined Dortmund in 2018, a record which highlights his remarkable ability to change a game off the bench.
Spurs could certainly do a lot worse than to take Dortmund, who now have Erling Braut Haaland as their number one striker, up on their offer.
With Heung-Min Son, Lucas Moura and co providing ammunition, a man who has fired home 12 goals in 19 international appearances for Spain could be the difference between a top four and a top six finish for Tottenham.
