Bournemouth striker Josh King has emerged as a target for Tottenham as Jose Mourinho steps up his search for a back-up to Harry Kane, according to reports.

With time running out before the transfer window closes, Spurs are intensifying their efforts to bring in another forward.

And it is Norway international King who could be the man to make the move to north London, claim The Telegraph.

Tottenham haven't bought a successful striker in ELEVEN YEARS

  Tottenham haven't bought a successful striker in ELEVEN YEARS Last Sunday's defeat to Everton raised questions as to Spurs' reliance on Kane as the man to lead the line, as well as wider concerns about their inability to recruit well in the final third. The acquisition of Gareth Bale might be a stunning step in the right direction but that does not solve the problem at the point of the spear.

The England captain has started in five of Tottenham's six games so far this season, including their Europa League trips to Bulgaria and North Macedonia.

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

King was left feeling 'used and messed around' as United made encouraging noises with a £25million offer before turning instead to Odion Ighalo.

King was ready to travel up to Manchester to rejoin the side he signed for as a 16-year-old but was frustrated when the club did not follow up on their interest.

The 28-year-old was part of the Bournemouth side relegated to the Championship last season, but he has proven himself a reliable goalscorer in the Premier League.

He found the back of the net 48 times in the English top flight during the Cherries' five years in the division.

New boss Jason Tindall has admitted the south-coast club won't stand in the forward's way if the right offer should come in.

Although deadline day is just a week away on October 5, Premier League sides are still able to buy from the EFL for a further 11 days, increasing Spurs' chances of snaring King.

Finding back-up to Kane has proven problematic for Spurs in recent years, and the hope remains that they can find a successful solution.

Vincent Janssen proved disastrous when he arrived for £17m in 2016, scoring just two Premier League goals.

Fernando Llorente was a more able deputy, but still only scored twice in the Premier League before heading to Napoli in Serie A.
