Tottenham Hotspur planning another move for young striker Kyle Joseph

A report by The Sun mentions that Tottenham Hotspur are interested in making a second attempt to sign Wigan Athletic strike Kyle Joseph.

The Lilywhites tried to sign the 19-year-old striker in the summer after making a £150,000 bid. However, the move was rejected by the U-21 Scotland striker.

And now, Spurs are reportedly after the striker again after Joseph scored a hat-trick against Burton Albion this week.

After missing the first 9 games of the season, the youngster has featured in their last 11 league games and has scored four goals. (h/t Transfermarkt)

Harry Kane does not have any real competition for the starting spot at Tottenham Hotspur.

Wigan Athletic risk losing a bunch of players this week if the club does not come out of administration. The club needs a new owner to take over in order for them to keep hold of the 7 players they have on short-term contracts.

Spurs signed Alfie Devine from Wigan and the midfielder has made significant progress since his move to Spurs. This could prove to Joseph that there is a way for him in the first-team in the future.

And, Harry Kane was himself a player from Spurs’ youth academy when he broke into the first team in 2012.

As of now, the club does not have a shortage of attacking options. Harry Kane, Son Heung-min, Lucas Moura, Erik Lamela, Steven Bergwijn, Carlos Vinicius, and Gareth Bale all make for a very able frontline.

However, Joseph could prove to be a wise move in the long term. Both Vinicius and Bale are on loan and are scheduled to return to their parent clubs in the summer.

And Harry Kane also needs a successor in the long-term. Even in the short term, the club can utilize Joseph every now and then. If an offer in the area of Spurs’ initial summer bid for Joseph is accepted, then this could be a low risk, high reward signing.
