According to rumors, Bournemouth striker Josh King has emerged as an option for Tottenham as Jose Mourinho steps up his search for a Harry Kane back-up.

Spurs are intensifying their attempts to get in another forward with time running out before the transfer window closes. And it is the foreign king of Norway who may be the guy to make the move to North London, The Telegraph says.

Mourinho has reportedly been increasingly irritated by Spurs’ inability to protect the talismanic Kane’s land so far.

So far this season, the England captain has started five of Tottenham’s six games, including their Europa League trips to Bulgaria and Northern Macedonia.

The late play of Spurs for King comes after he was at the core of a transfer saga in January when a deadline-day move was made by Manchester United.

As United made motivating noises with a £ 25million bid before turning instead to Odion Ighalo, King was left feeling ‘used and messed around.’

As a 16-year-old, King was prepared to move to Manchester to join the side he signed for but was disappointed when the club did not follow through on their interest.

The 28-year-old was relegated to the Championship last season as part of the Bournemouth team, but he has proved himself to be a consistent Premier League goalscorer.
