Spurs have been linked with two strikers from either side of Rome in the last couple of days and while both men have appeared in transfer rumours before, one is a far more attractive prospect than the other.
The first is Pablo Osvaldo who, it is claimed, will be allowed to leave Roma this summer after two years in Serie A. Osvaldo is 27 and averages more than a goal every other game in Italy but it’s thought that his poor relationship with the club’s fans will see him leave in the next window.
Spurs have been linked to the striker but so too have Anzhi Makhachkala and Russian millions usually mean that the deal will only go one way.
Meanwhile, the name of Mauro Zarate has appeared again, with Lazio set to let him leave after four disappointing years with the club. Zarate plays as a winger or a second striker so it’s maybe not fair to compare him with Osvaldo but a return of 12 league goals in 67 Lazio appearances suggest that he wouldn’t be quite so welcome at the Lane.
Striker links will continue over the coming weeks but would you like to see either of these players at the club?
