Tottenham Hotspur undoubtedly need another striker this summer, though finding the funds to pull off such a move may be difficult.
The global pandemic will hit Spurs hard. They still owe money on their stadium and on previous signings, so they will be feeling the pinch.
Jose Mourinho will have to be clever in the transfer market, but he needs to find a striker who can support Harry Kane at the top of the pitch.
BILD now claim that Spurs want Borussia Monchengladbach forward Alassane Plea. He’s allegedly valued at around £30million, and Arsenal are keen too.
That price makes Plea seem like a difficult target. Still, the Frenchman makes sense. He’s experienced at 27, and he possesses versatility given that he can play up front or out wide.
This season, Plea has hit nine goals and eight assists. In 2018, Spurs held talks about signing Plea from Nice, according to RMC Sport, but no move materialised.
Some fans haven’t forgotten that, believing that Plea should have been signed two years ago, rather than paying an inflated price now.
Others think Plea is good, but shouldn’t be Tottenham’s target from Gladbach; they would rather have his compatriot and fellow attacker Marcus Thuram instead.
