COMMENT

Former Manchester United and England star Rio Ferdinand has said that Tottenham are in need of a winger in order to counter the weakness posed by the form of striker Harry Kane.

However the ex-centre back did not say that the England star was a problem up front, but rather the exact opposite.

He insisted that Spurs were too reliant on his contribution, and that if teams managed to mark him out of the game then the Lilywhites would struggle to break teams down.

To try and cover for this, Ferdinand says that the club should be looking to snap up a new wide man in January, to offer an additional creative force up front which they currently lack.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino does not have many natural wide options at his disposal, having seen Georges-Kevin N’Koudou depart on loan to Burnley earlier this month, but the former Manchester United man has offered a trio of suggestions that the manager must be looking at buying.

Here, Football Insider rates each of the three international wingers, including one out of favour forward who could be the perfect addition to the current Spurs squad.
