Tottenham have emerged as surprise contenders to sign Rhian Brewster on loan from Liverpool. Spurs have long been looking to find a striker capable of providing ample back-up to Harry Kane.
Fernando Llorente and Vincent Janssen have all come and gone in recent years with Spurs recently opting to use this likes of Lucas Moura and Son Heung-min down the middle.
But Jose Mourinho is keen to bring in an out-and-out striker capable of playing that role when needed.
Kane missed a large chunk of last season through injury during a period which saw Tottenham slip down the table.
And Tottenham will face a congested fixture schedule this season as they compete in the Europa League.

Kane will unlikely be expected to feature in all of the games, requiring Mourinho to try and sign a striker.
Callum Wilson has been linked as a potential target, but Tottenham could be looking to sign an up and coming young talent on loan.
According to Football Insider, Spurs are ready to test Liverpool’s resolve with an offer to sign Brewster on a season-long loan.
Their interest comes just two years after the club tried to sign the young forward.

Brewster ultimately went on to sign a long-term contract at Anfield with Liverpool coaches expecting him to become a first-team regular.
That didn’t happen last season as Brewster was still getting back to full match sharpness having recently recovered from a long injury lay off.
Klopp eventually agreed to send Brewster out on loan to Swansea in January where he helped the Welsh side reach the Championship play-offs with 11 goals in just 22 games.
The England youth star is currently with Liverpool’s first team in Austria for their pre-season training camp.
But Klopp is said to be undecided on whether he plans to keep Brewster at the club for the upcoming season or send him out on loan again.
Clubs such as Newcastle, Aston Villa and Brighton have all registered an interest in taking the striker on loan and would potentially be able to offer him regular first-team football.
Tottenham won’t be able to offer the same promises with Kane being the No 1 option.
