Tottenham interested in snapping-up Beijing Guoan ace Cedric Bakambu after goal heroics in Chinese Super League


TOTTENHAM are preparing to raid China for Beijing Guoan striker Cedric Bakambu, according to reports.

Spurs failed to sign a new face during the summer but are ready to invest in January to avoid their players tiring throughout the season.

A striker also remains a problem for boss Mauricio Pochettino as he attempts to lessen the burden on Harry Kane’s shoulders.

Previous back-up forwards Vincent Janssen and Fernando Llorente have failed to deliver since arriving to north London.

According to L’Est Republican, Tottenham have already made contact over a potential deal for Bakambu but his huge wage could be a problem for the notoriously frugal Daniel Levy.

The former Villarreal man moved to China for a whopping £35.4m
