Why Celtic’s £40 million striker could be the perfect backup for Harry Kane

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino deserves a huge credit for a job well done in-charge of the North London club since taking over as their manager in May, 2014, but the Argentine failure to guide Tottenham to a trophy win has become a huge concern for the fans.

This summer will be vital for Pochettino, and he will surely be looking to strengthen his ranks at the club, in order to take the team to the next level.

That being said, the main particular spot that needs an upgrade is the centre-forward department, with more competition required for Harry Kane.

However, a new centre-forward in Tottenham will need to accept playing second choice to Kane, if Pochettino still insists on playing with one striker as he usually does.

With this, the perfect acquisitions for Spurs should be a young forward who has a lot to prove, and who the signing of Celtic’s Moussa Dembele would be a wise move for the team.

Dembele joined Celtic from Fulham in the summer of 2016, and the Frenchman has gone on to net impressive 48 goals in 86 games across all competition for Brendan Rodgers’ team.

Dembele, 21, is strong in the air, quick along the ground, and the young striker plays with a certain kind of maturity that defies his tender years.

The striker would surely be prepared to act as Kane’s understudy for a couple of years at least, and he would be hungry to prove that he has what it takes to make it at the very highest level.

The Glasgow giant’s will demand around £40 million for the Frenchman’s signature, according to the Telegraph, and in today’s day and age, that would represent decent value for Spurs.
