Tottenham linked with ex-Bolton attacker now starring at Valencia

Tottenham have reportedly turned their attention to a former Bolton star to strengthen their attacking options this summer.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is demanding that the club splash the cash to try and compete with the two Manchester clubs, having finished in 3rd spot in the Premier League this season.

With Fernando Llorente having failed to impress as Harry Kane’s back-up, Pochettino is on the look out for a more of attacking threat from the bench and it would appear that Rodrigo Moreno fits the bill.

The Valencia forward, who had a loan spell at Bolton back in 2010-11, has scored 16 goals in 36 appearances this season playing as a No.10 behind Simone Zaza.

The 27-year-0ld Spain star has previously been linked with a €35million move to Manchester City and his ability to play in any position across the front line certainly makes him at attractive option.

Moreno is not being tipped to come in and start straight away but would provide a threat to the likes of regular starters Heung-Min Son and Dele Alli should he make the switch to north London.
