His penalty taking was the best thing about him since he joined Tottenham but on Saturday even his penalty taking let down Roberto Soldado.
Spurs are willing to cut their losses with Soldado in January and could take a massive hit on the £26m they paid for the striker just last summer and are rumoured to be willing to accept just £10m.
Pochettino wants to swoop for Swansea striker Wilfried Bony and Daniel Levy would be willing to splash around £20m on the Ivory Coast international. Bony impressed last season, his first full season in the Premier League and is the strike threat up front that Spurs need. A target man who can hold the ball up and score goals. Spurs have waited too long for a striker capable of scoring 20+ goals in the Premier League.
Many would argue Spurs haven’t had a top class striker since Berbatov. So many promising big names like Adebayor and Soldado haven’t really made the impact that the fans were hoping for.
