Some Tottenham Hotspur fans are suggesting a former West Ham United striker as a possible solution to their side's problems.
Already without Harry Kane for the foreseeable future, Tottenham could now lose Son Heung-min for the rest of the season after the South Korean suffered a fractured arm against Aston Villa on Sunday.
The pair's absence leaves a trio of unorthodox centre-forwards, Dele Alli, Lucas Moura and Steven Bergwijn, plus the inexperienced Troy Parrott as the primary options available to the Spurs manager Jose Mourinho.
Tottenham could yet turn to the free agent market for extra support, though suitable candidates are scarce.
There is however one name which stands out to several of a Spurs persuasion and it is one in whom Mourinho was credited with an interest in 2014 - when he was the Chelsea boss and the player in question belonged to West Ham (The Telegraph).

@SpursOfficial Diafra Sakho and Victor Anichebe dont have clubs... just saying.— Ben Spanton-Walker (@benswalker) February 18, 2020
Sakho scored 24 goals in 71 games for West Ham, but was sold to Rennes for a reported fee of £9 million in January 2018.
The Senegalese struggled back in France however and was released at the end of last year, following an unsuccessful loan spell at Bursaspor.
Tottenham fans - which free agent should your club sign, if any?
