Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly weighing up a move for Liverpool striker Divock Origi as they seek to cover up the injury absence of Harry Kane.

The north London giants suffered a major blow during the previous weekend after Kane suffered an ankle ligament injury which is expected to keep him out of action until March at the least.

According to The Telegraph, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has been handed a £50m kitty to spend on a marksman after the recent setback for the England captain.

However, the Argentine tactician may still prefer a cut-price deal with Liverpool's Divock Origi and West Bromwich Albion's Jay Rodriguez highlighted as probable options.

Spurs are currently with two centre-forward options in Fernando Llorente and Vincent Janssen to take up Kane's position in the starting XI but the latter has already been told that he has no future with the club.

Based on this, Llorente should most certainly lead the line when Tottenham Hotspur take on struggling Fulham in the weekend's cross-town derby on the road.
