Wells Could Be Spurs Answer in the Striker Department

There have been suggestions that Spurs could turn to the second tier for a deputy to their homegrown center-forward, writes Tom Victor for Football London.

Tottenham finally added another striker to their ranks before the transfer window closed.

Benfica frontman Carlos Vinicius joined on a season-long long deal, with an option to make the move permanent at the end of this season.

It ended 14 months without a back-up to Harry Kane following Fernando Llorente's departure.

But could Jose Mourinho be tempted to add another?

Former Tottenham midfielder Jamie O’Hara believes there are players at Championship level with a suitable skill-set.

“You can’t expect Kane to play every single minute of every single game, because he’s going to get injured, especially with the fixture list,” O’Hara said on talkSPORT.

One of the players O’Hara believes can fit in the Tottenham fold is Nahki Wells.

Wells will certainly feel he has a point to prove in the Premier League, having been handed just 46 minutes of top-flight football at Burnley, and his 18 goals last season came at a rate of one every 156 minutes (per WhoScored).

The Bermudian showed surprising strength and aerial ability at times during his stint at QPR, demonstrating he’s capable of filling a Kane-type role despite his relatively slight stature.

There is one potential stumbling block, namely the fact that he only moved to current club Bristol City in January, but the pull of a top Premier League move would surely be enough to get around that.
