Tottenham transfer targets summer 2024: Postecoglou keen for attacking firepower

For a long time now, Daniel Levy has been labelled as a chairman who looks for cheaper options and doesn't like splashing the cash in the transfer market.

Since Ange Postecoglou walked through the doors at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, things have been very different, with the Australian being handed a sizeable transfer budget. And although Spurs missed out on Champions League football for the upcoming season, that hasn't stopped the rumours linking Tottenham with a host of top-class players.

Tottenham transfer targets – Latest rumours

It remains to be seen what Spurs' big priority position is to improve this summer, but another centre-back and attacker could well be needed to relieve the pressure off club captain Son Heung-min.

Desire Doue

Desire Doue only has 56 Ligue 1 appearances under his belt but is already being tipped to join a major European club this summer. Tottenham are one of several Premier League clubs interested in the French teenager, although he has a hefty price tag on his head.

Nine goal involvements in 31 league appearances last season is nothing outstanding, but when you factor in his tender age, Doue has the world at his feet. Comfortable playing as an attacking midfielder or left winger, Doue could well prove to be an amazing understudy to Son this season.

Jonathan David

Jonathan David has long been linked with a move away from Lille as he's consistently lit up Ligue 1 with his goalscoring ability and this summer looks to be his chance. The Canadian striker has one year left on his contract, so Lille must cash in this transfer window.

David has been linked with the majority of top European clubs over the past few years and this summer is no different. Spurs are said to be near the front of the queue as Postecoglou goes in search of a true Kane replacement.

Santiago Gimenez

The second striker on this shortlist shows how desperate Tottenham are for a new centre-forward. Spurs' top scorer in the league last season was captain Son with 17 strikes, but that was a fall off of some 13 goals from what Kane managed the campaign before.

So, it's no surprise that the red-hot Santiago Gimenez is being linked. The Mexican international scored 29 goals across all competitions last season for Feyenoord as they finished second in the Eredivisie. He's got two years left on his contract and a high market value, so this deal could be a test of Levy's resolve.
