Tottenham have a long list of striker transfer targets as they aim to bring in a new forward before the end of the window, according to Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth. Tottenham are set to announce the signings of Gareth Bale and Sergio Reguilon from Real Madrid on Friday. But Spurs boss Jose Mourinho does not want the club’s transfer business to finish there.
Express Sport understands one player under consideration by Tottenham is Wolfsburg’s 28-year-old Dutch striker Wout Weghorst.
Spurs are set to spend £27million on Reguilon and up to £20m across Bale’s season-long loan.
Sheth says that takes a considerable chunk out of the club’s remaining transfer budget.
But he claims a striker is still on the agenda and there are a host of players Mourinho has earmarked.

Sheth said on the Transfer Show: “People are asking, with Gareth Bale arriving, does that mean Tottenham won’t be signing another striker? Look, it’s not been ruled out at all.
“Of course the arrivals of Bale and Reguilon would eat into the money for potential signings, that can’t be questioned.

“But Tottenham’s search for a striker, this is not a new thing.
“We’ve been talking about this for the last two, three, four, five, six transfer windows, ‘will they bring in another striker to either play alongside Harry Kane? To be a backup to Harry Kane?’.

“One player they were looking at was Alexander Sorloth, that one looks like it’s not going to happen now because he looks like he’s on his way to RB Leipzig from Trabzonspor.
“I was told earlier this week that there is a long list of strikers that Tottenham have as they look to bring in somebody before the window closes.”
Meanwhile, former Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov has raised doubts over whether Bale can help Spurs win silverware for the first time since 2008.
Speaking to Betfair, Berbatov said: “It’s so important to have people who have won trophies in your dressing room, whether they be players or managers, so can Mourinho and Bale instil that winning mentality at Spurs?
“Or will they be dragged down by the club? It’s going to be fascinating to find out.
“I went to United having only won a League Cup and they changed me to become a consistent winner.
“At Spurs, the dressing room could possibly change Bale and Mourinho. That is the challenge at Spurs now.”
