Tottenham Hotspur are looking to build on the good performance of the last season and make the next term a better one from all aspects for them. The results in the last season have been evident of the fact how good the players have been playing, especially the ones up front. However, the bulk of the scoring has been done by the England striker Harry Kane, who ended the season with a whopping 29 goals under his belt, clinching the Golden Boot award in consecutive seasons.
The current coach of the Spurs, Mauricio Pochettino, is well aware of the fact that what kind of toll it can take on the players to perform on a continuous basis in the Premier League, which is one of the most intriguing and competitive leagues in the world. So to decrease the burden of his main man upfront, Kane and have someone good enough as a backup for him, the Argentine mastermind is looking to bring in a top class striker in the form of Mariano Diaz from Real Madrid in the summer.
The Dominican Republic striker has been one of the most forgettable players to play for Real Madrid under Zinedine Zidane, kept away from the action on a continuous basis and is currently looking to make a move out of Santiago Bernabeu to revive his career. The 23-year-old is eyeing a club which can look to start with him in the coming season.
The striker shot to fame with his grand performance for the Real Madrid B team, playing a pivotal role for them, leading the attack and scoring 27 times for the team in 33 appearances in the season prior to the last one. As a result of that, he was handed the opportunity to play in the senior squad in the last season, making it his debut season in top flight football as a part of the Galacticos line-up.
However, it was not a season to be remembered for the young forward, who did not get a chance to make it into the starting eleven for more than 14 times last season, owing to the fact that both Karim Benzema and Alvaro Morata have been at their prime and helped Los Blancos to lift both the Champions League and Spanish La Liga trophies.
Reportedly, Tottenham has been told to pay £12 million for the player to bag him for the next season. Vincent Janssen, the other Spurs striker, has only scored twice last season and might be offloaded. The 23-year-old has been pursued by Atletico Madrid, Lazio and Malaga as well.
