Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly interested in signing Stuttgart striker Timo Werner, as Mauricio Pochettino looks to overhaul his forward line ahead of next season.

According to the Mirror, the Argentine manager is keen to bring fresh young talent to support Harry Kane, who had a breakthrough season at the club scoring 31 goals in all competitions.

The English forward had to shoulder the goal scoring burden at the club, as senior strikers Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor struggled for form throughout the season and contributed with just seven goals between them in all competitions.

The former Southampton manager is looking to replace the goal shy duo with young strikers with future potential, and has targeted the Stuttgart forward, who is touted for a big future in Germany.

Reports suggest the north London club are also close to agreeing a deal with AS Monaco for 19-year-old forward Anthony Martial, who has been dubbed the 'new Thierry Henry' in some quarters.

Pochettino has made strengthening his forward line a priority this summer after seeing his team struggle for goals last season despite Kane's blistering form, and is hoping to add the above mentioned duo to provide back up for the England international.

Werner, who is contracted to Stuttgart until the summer of 2018, managed just three goals in 30 games for the Bundesliga club last season, but the Argentine manager is reportedly looking to bring in young talents with future potential to replace Adebayor and Soldado.

The German forward was a target for the White Hart Lane outfit during the January transfer window, with the club willing to part with defender Younes Kaboul, who was a target for the Germans, to land the talented young striker.
