Spurs’ new boss wants a revamp of the strike force.
Tottenham Hotspur’s new manager Mauricio Pochettino wants a revamp of the North Londoners’ strike force this summer and is willing to sell last season’s hit striker Emmanuel Adebayor in order to fund a move for Chelsea starlet Romelu Lukaku, reports the Daily Mirror.
Spurs’ Spanish striker Roberto Soldado, who was signed from Valencia for £26 million last summer, could also be on his way as Pochettino begins to stamp his mark on transfer dealings at White Hart Lane.
The Argentine boss who worked well with a thin budget at Southampton believes that out of favour Chelsea forward Lukaku could be prised away from Stamford Bridge if the North Londoners offer the right price, and he looks at the Belgian as the right long term option for his new club.
Chelsea, however, are reported to have slapped a whopping £32 million price tag on the 21-year old, who is believed to have made up with his boss Jose Mourinho and might even be part of the Blues’ first team squad next season after having spent two successful loan spells at West Brom and Everton.
This situation could make it very hard for Spurs to attract Lukaku as he could see them as a step down from potentially playing Champions League football with Chelsea.
