Micky Hazard, a former striker for Tottenham has advised Mauricio Pochettino to sign Edin Dzeko and forget Andy Carroll.
The Spurs are looking to sign a cover for their striking force, following the injury to Harry Kane and the exit of Son, who is on international duty.
Tottenham are looking to bolster their ranks, according to rumours and are looking to sign West Ham forward, Andy Carroll, but Hazard believes they should look to Dzeko instead.
“I’d like to see Edin Dzeko come in,” Hazard, who took in two spells with Tottenham in his playing days, told Love Sport Radio.
“I think he’s a top player and I don’t think he’s in the team at the moment [at Roma].
“Thankfully it’s not my decision but if I was manager of Spurs I wouldn’t be looking to Andy Carroll.
“I don’t think he’d fit into our way of playing. He might do us a job during this period when we’ve got an absolutely incredible injury list and Son away which compounds it.
“But I am a bit of a purist and I have a style of play that I like to see and I think Dzeko would fit in better than Andy Carroll.”
