Tottenham looking to spend some of the Harry Kane money as they look to bolster the squad after Brentford draw.

Tottenham are still in the market for a forward player who can come in and provide pace, assists and goals with reports in Yorkshire claiming that Spurs are looking at Wilfried Gnonto, the Italian forward who impressed heavily last season.

Leeds United have said they will only entertain offers in the region of £20million with Everton being frontrunners all summer- but Spurs who have lost their captain Harry Kane to Bayern Munich could make a bid for him in the coming days.

Personal terms with Gnonto are believed to be a mere formality as he is on a low wage in Yorkshire and will jump at the opportunity to move to London and play for a team that is looking to start from scratch after recent disappointment.

Gnonto played in the opening Championship game against Cardiff City but missed the following one against Birmingham as a move away from the club continues to take shape.

Tottenham have signed James Maddison, Micky van de Ven, Guglielmo Vicario, Ashley Phillips and Alejo Veliz this summer but the loss of Kane is a massive letdown at a time they were hoping he’d be leading their rebuild under new manager Ange Postecoglou.

They however showed incredible mental strength to earn a away at Brentford in their first Premier League game of the season. Spurs took the lead when two deputy captains James Maddison and Cristian Romero combined to score, but Brentford responded with two goals before Emerson Royal ensured it all ended in a draw.

They will now hope they get their first win in the league when they host Manchester United in the league.
