It’s fair to say Tottenham’s summer signings have been a little underwhelming this season.
With one eye on their new stadium, chairman Daniel Levy has understandably been reluctant to splash out too much on strengthening his squad of nearly men.
Vincent Janssen, Moussa Sissoko, and Georges-Kevin N’Koudou have all made little impact at White Hart Lane, with only Victor Wanyama really impressing since arriving from Southampton.
However, the Mirror report that Spurs could be about to rectify that situation and bolster their attack with the signing of Anthony Martial from Manchester United.
The versatile winger, who can also play up front, scored against Watford on Saturday but has endured a difficult relationship with Jose Mourinho.
Even little gestures like taking the number nine shirt off him and giving it to Zlatan Ibrahimovic have made his last few months at Old Trafford pretty unhappy.
The Frenchman excelled under Louis van Gaal, scoring 17 goals last term, so Mauricio Pochettino must know the potential is there.
And signing the 21-year-old could effectively be killing two birds with one stone. The Lilywhites need a striker and another attacking midfielder, as their bench looks disappointing at present.
Given where Martial plays, he could also serve as a replacement for Erik Lamela if the unsettled Argentine leaves England this summer.
