Tottenham are reportedly closing in on a new striker after talks were opened to bring in a Poland international hotshot.
Representatives from the north London club are currently working on the deal in Milan.
Spurs remain in the market for a new No.9 after missing Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min through injury at times last season.
That left Jose Mourinho woefully short of striking options at a critical part of the season. To that end, the Portuguese is determined that will not happen again.
An initial loan deal is being proposed, with an option to buy. The report adds that confirmation on the deal, one way or another, is expected in the coming days.
AURIER TURNS DOWN CHANCE FOR TOTTENHAM EXIT
Serge Aurier has turned down a move from Tottenham to Spartak Moscow, according to reports.
The defender looked to have benefitted from the arrival of Spurs boss Jose Mourinho last season.
He became a regular in the right-back role after struggling to convince fans following his move from Paris Saint-Germain in 2017 for £24m.
But Mourinho’s faith seems to have wavered.
The Republic of Ireland defender has started both Spurs’ Premier League game so far. That included Sunday’s 5-2 rout of Southampton.
Tottenham have also been involved in Europa League action but Aurier has yet to play a part.
