​Tottenham Hotspur have directed their attention in the goal-scoring department towards Burnley's 25-year-old hit-man Andre Gray as a replacement for misfiring Dutch striker Vincent Janssen. 


According to a report provided by the Mirror, Mauricio Pochettino is growing tired of relying on offensive duo Harry Kane and Dele Alli to provide his squad with the goals this season. 


Gray, who has bagged nine goals for Sean Dyche's Clarets this campaign is said to be the perfect compliment for the north Londoners.

With Spurs' owner Daniel Levy reluctant to splash out too drastically for a replacement for Janssen - who has failed to make an impact at White Hart Lane following Kane's sudden absence - Gray could be available at a reasonable price.


Levy will use the money gained from Janssen's departure to bid for Gray. The once highly-rated former AZ Alkmaar man has not managed to settle at the Lilywhites this term, and has also failed to net a goal for his current club in open play. A statistic like that will not flatter the 22-year-old one bit.

Prior to his move to the Premier League last summer, Janssen finished the Eredivisie's top scorer at AZ with 27 goals to his name in the 2015-16 season. 


With an attacking pedigree such as that, which has unfortunately evaded the striker's performances this season, there's sure to be a number of interested parties which are willing to take the Dutchman away come the transfer window.


Gray made the move to Turf Moor two-years ago in a £9m deal from Championship side Brentford, and after a scintillating debut season in England's top flight, it suggests that the best is yet to come from the flourishing Englishman.

Gray only has 12-months remaining on his current contract at Burnley, and has influenced Spurs' into tailing the striker. 


Burnley's assured attacker is more than comfortable playing in a partnership or independently in the top third of the pitch, and could be used as a utility man by Pochettino, if the move was to happen, of course.
