Former Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler believes that Bournemouth striker Josh King moving to Tottenham Hotspur in the transfer market is a real possibility.

King has been linked heavily with Tottenham after an impressive season saw him notch 16 goals in the Premier League.

The former Manchester United player has caught the eye of Spurs but the £30m price tag may be a sticking point in the negotiations.

Fowler wrote in the Mirror about the situation: “They will go and spend. There will be a striker coming in – I’ve heard ­Bournemouth’s Josh King is a possible – and despite the fact there have been a few misfires in recent years, they have been building a good quality squad.”


The former Leeds United striker has also given his take on Tottenham striker Vincent Janssen, who struggled to make an impact at White Hart Lane last season. The 23-year-old only managed to score two goals and provided two assists in 27 Premier League appearances last season.

Fowler said: "The Dutch lad Vincent Janssen hasn’t cut it either, and he does not look ­Tottenham class,” 

“I am not slagging him, just being realistic – he is not good enough to replace Harry Kane.

“Spurs got lucky last season because Kane only had one injury spell and they did not miss him too much. But if he gets a bad one or struggles, they will need better quality as back-up."
