Spurs have been linked with a number of different strikers this summer but the latest name to be mentioned is a class above the rest.
France Football have claimed that Tottenham could rival Arsenal for the signature of the Borussia Dortmund forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The Gabon international hit 26 goals for the German giants last season, despite Dortmund struggling in the wrong half of the league for much of the campaign.
On the face of it such a transfer seems unlikely. Aubameyang is rated at around £30m. Would Spurs really spend that much money on a forward when they already have Harry Kane to lead the line?
For an orthodox striker – perhaps not, but Aubameyang is a versatile attacker who can play as a lone forward or wide. He’s incredibly quick and would be pretty much the perfect signing for Tottenham right now. It’s a lot of money, but the club has effectively spent nothing so far this summer.
Of course, being able to afford a player is only half the battle in signing them. At 26-years old Aubameyang would no doubt be looking towards a side that could provide him with Champions League football and if Arsenal were to make a rival move, then there would be no prizes for guessing who he’d choose.
At this moment we can probably file this transfer rumour under the extremely unlikely category, but stranger things have happened.
