That's right—one of Tottenham's leading scorers for the 2013-14 season will be a player to be determined or T.B.D., as I like to call him.
What kind of qualities does T.B.D. possess? Well, if you're a Spurs supporter you would hope he is strong, reliable, opportunistic, a poacher, etc. Of course, this is far from likely, as Tottenham have not had such a high-profiled striker since Jurgen Klinsmann graced White Hart Lane in the mid '90s.
So who will it be?
Spurs have shown a lot of interest in Valencia striker Roberto Soldado. In theory, it's a perfect match. Soldado is arguably Spain's top striker, though he is regularly passed up for a starting spot with La Roja in favor of Fernando Torres and David Villa. Speaking of Villa, Spurs have already missed out on his signature after Atletico Madrid swooped in for the former FC Barcelona man. But getting back to Soldado, the only thing keeping him from a move to the Premier League is Valencia's willingness to sell him for anything less than 30 million euros. If Spurs are willing to splash the cash for the Spaniard, their problems at the forward position may be solved.
Tottenham have also shown interest in Brazil's Leandro Damiao (Internacional), Colombian striker Jackson Martinez (FC Porto) and Christian Benteke (Aston Villa), all of whom have declared that they will remain with their clubs, while Aston Villa actually managed to sign Benteke to a four-year deal without a release clause after flirting with relegation last season.
Prediction: 20 goals in 2013-14 (15 in BPL, 5 in all other competitions)
