Tottenham linked with speedy goalscorer

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has again drawn admiring glances from all over Europe this season and not least because he has such a good eye for a player.

Tottenham are pushing Chelsea all the way in the title race this season and guaranteed Champions League football will make them an even more attractive proposition for potential signings.

But latest media reports suggest that Spurs may look closer to home for their next attacking signing.

British media outlet, The Mirror, reports:

Tottenham eyeing in-form Bournemouth striker Josh King for summer transfer

King started his career at Manchester United where his pace really stood out. But he only managed two appearances in the cup at Old Trafford before a move to Preston in 2011. A loan moved to Germany followed before the Norway international moved back to England with Hull and Blackburn.

He then settled in Bournemouth and scored seven goals last season before adding a really impressive 15 and 34 games this term.

That pace is obviously one of his great qualities. But he seems to be honing his game and becoming more precise and clever in front of goal. Still only 25 years of age there’s so much room for improvement but he does look like the sort of hard running forward that Tottenham and Mauricio Pochettino could shape into a top player.

Tottenham fans – would this be a really wise addition to the squad and a great understudy for Harry Kane or should you be looking for a higher calibre and more experienced striker?
