Tottenham are lining up a move for the Anderlecht striker Lukasz Teodorczyk, according to Polish media outlet Sport PL, who claim that the Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino wants to bring in the Poland international to provide competition and back up to Harry Kane. 

Teodorczyk may be seen as a surprise target for Spurs considering he has only scored three goals in 24 games for Anderlecht this season. 

He was in far better form last season though as his 22 goals helped Anderlecht to the Belgian Premier Division title and a quarter final appearance in the Europa League. 

Obviously, Teodorczyk would not displace Harry Kane from the Spurs team, Kane has once again been on fire for Tottenham this season with 26 goals already in all competitions, including back-to-back hat tricks at the end of 2017 against Burnley and Southampton.

Tottenham have struggled though at times this season to find goals from their other strikers. Son Heung-min, who scored a stunning goal against West Ham on Thursday, has ten in all competitions, but only five in the Premier League and Fernando Llorente's sole Premier League strike for Spurs came in the recent win at Swansea. 

Spurs have had their midfield to thank for providing the goals not scored by Kane with Dele Alli scoring nine and Christian Eriksen six. 

Spurs sit fifth in the Premier League table following the festive fixtures, three points behind Liverpool who occupy the final Champions League place. Mauricio Pochettino's side advanced to the 4th Round of the FA Cup after a 3-0 win over AFC Wimbledon on Sunday.
