Whoever takes on the role as Tottenham’s head coach for 2014-15 is going to have to address the issue of the third striker. Assuming Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado stay at the club, that leaves Harry Kane as back up and as promising as the England Under 21 International may be, the man in charge will surely want a more experienced figure.
Expect any number of names to be mentioned between now and the opening of the summer transfer window but for now, an isolated rumour connects us with an alleged former target – French international Loic Remy.
27 year old Remy is currently on loan at Newcastle from QPR and in a struggling Magpies side, has managed a respectable 13 goals in 23 league games so far in this campaign. His future is uncertain with Rangers clinging on to a play off position and he could well be available at the end of the season.
Meanwhile, Kane warmed up for this weekend’s action with two goals in an Under 21 tie against West Brom. His record in this type of fixture is an impressive one but he needs strikes in the Premiership if he is going to be first choice back up to the main striking pair.
