Tottenham’s approach for Lucas Alario rejected by Bayer Leverkusen

According to SPORT BILD’s Christian Falk, Tottenham Hotspur made an enquiry for the signing of Bayer Leverkusen striker Lucas Alario, but the club’s approach was rejected by the Bundesliga outfit.

The 27-year-old Alario started out at CA Colon in his homeland Argentina and enjoyed a couple of good seasons at River Plate. In 2017, the striker made the jump to Germany, joining Bayer Leverkusen. In 100 appearances for the club, he has netted 37 goals and set up 13 more for his teammates. (h/t Transfermarkt)

Alario has also made seven appearances for the Argentine national team, having made his debut in 2016. He has three goals for La Albiceleste (h/t Transfermarkt).

Tottenham Hotspur have been scouring the transfer market for a new striker. At the moment, Jose Mourinho does not have any sort of natural cover for star forward Harry Kane. And the club are intent on addressing that issue before Monday’s transfer deadline.

And, as per Christian Falk, Alario has emerged as a possible option for the Lilywhites. To that end, the Londoners asked about the possibility of signing the 27-year-old. However, they were met with a firm rejection from Leverkusen director Rudi Voller.

With less than a week left for the transfer window to shut, Tottenham need to intensify their efforts to bring in a new striker. Going through the campaign with just Kane as the only striker would spell disaster for the club, more so given the cramped schedule and the number of competitions we are involved in.

Alario would have been a decent option, but with Leverkusen rejecting the approach, Spurs will need to quickly move on to other targets.
