Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has sent scouts to observe Roma’s veteran striker Eden Dzeko ahead of a potential January move, according to the Mirror.
The new Spurs boss is enjoying a successful beginning to his managerial career at the North London-based club, where his team have registered four wins in his first five matches in charge.
As per the latest report, despite those victories, Mourinho is unhappy with the lack of striking options in the Tottenham squad and is worried about the workload of star striker Harry Kane, who is currently Spurs’ only out-right forward.
For this reason, the former Real Madrid manager has sent his scouts to Italy to observe Roma’s Dzeko, who could be a valuable addition to the Spurs squad as a backup to Kane.
The Bosnia and Herzegovina international already has experience of playing in the Premier League as he spent four seasons with Manchester City, with whom he managed to score 72 goals along with providing 39 assists in 189 matches in all competitions.
However, it will be interesting to see if Tottenham will be able to convince Dzeko to leave Roma, with whom he recently extended his contract until the summer of 2022.
The 33-year-old is in impressive form for the Rome-based club in the ongoing campaign where he has managed to score eight goals and provided three assists in 19 matches in all competitions.
Tottenham have been free-scoring in Mourinho’s short tenure at the club but there is an over-reliance on Kane to net the goals.
