Tottenham Hotspur must sign Mario Mandzukic from Juventus if they are going to continue their pursuit of the Premier League title.

The summer signing of Vincent Janssen hasn’t been the success that boss Mauricio Pochettino would have hoped for.

The Dutchman has only scored three goals for Spurs this season, with only one coming in the Premier League.

Earlier in the campaign Tottenham’s main striker Harry Kane missed five games with an ankle injury, giving Janssen the chance to prove his worth to his new club.

However the 22-year-old provided a string of underwhelming performances highlighting the north-London club’s need for a more experienced and proven back-up striker.

Mandzukic is currently playing in Italy with champions Juventus but faces competition from Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala for the Old Lady’s striker spot.

As well as this, the Croatian has represented clubs all across Europe including Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid.

A move to England could present the 30-year-old with a fresh challenge and an opportunity to fight for a Premier League winners medal.

Mandzukic would provide Spurs with key experience, having won the Champions League, and plays with a very similar style to Kane due to his strength and presence in the opposition penalty area.

Even though the Croatian is ageing, he is still a prolific starter for Juventus and his acquisition could be a masterstroke for the North London title hopefuls.
