Tottenham keeping tabs on 29-year-old Nigerian striker to back up Harry Kane

Crotone’s Simeon Nwankwo is on Tottenham radar 

According to the Telegraph (Subscription Required), Tottenham Hotspur are trying to strengthen up top and Nigerian international Simeon Nwankwo is one of the two names they are targeting. The signing will be looked at as a support to the squad rather than replace Harry Kane.

The report suggests that Nwankwo would be a cheaper option after his club got relegated from Serie A. Fiorentina’s Vlahovic is also mentioned as a target for the Lilywhites. 

On Simeon Nwankwo

Simeon Nwankwo or Simy is a product of Portimonense’s academy. Growing through the ranks, he made his first-team debut in 2011. In his 68 first-team appearances for the Portuguese club, he scored 19 goals.

Crotone signed Simy in 2016. The player established himself in Italy after scoring 20 goals and 3 assists in the 19/20 Serie B campaign. He continued his top-form following season. The striker returned with a similar figure, this time in the top division of Italy. However, Crotone were relegated from the league. 

He was included in his country’s 23-man squad for the FIFA World Cup 2018. 

Tottenham’s need for attackers

The Telegraph (Subscription Required) states Paratci has been presented with several targets to boost the Spurs attack, claiming that chairman Daniel Levy is determined to keep Harry Kane. Hence, the club views Simy as potentially supporting the attack led by their English talisman.

The club also saw the departure of Erik Lamela recently and boosted their attacking line with the arrival of Bryan Gil. While they have done well to maintain their depth on the flank, signing a striker would make a lot sense for Nuno Espirito Santo this summer.
