Liam Rosenior feels Callum Wilson would be a perfect replacement for Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane who is currently injured.
Spurs may act swiftly in the transfer market to replace Kane who is ruled out until March with an ankle injury.
And former Fulham, Hull and Brighton defender Rosenior accepted January is a “difficult window” – but said Spurs need to make a move.
“Mauricio Pochettino has done such a good job. They were minutes away from knocking Juventus out of the Champions League last season and I am desperate for them to take the next step. Now is the time to make that mark.
“I look at Callum Wilson and think he’s the perfect fit. He is of a profile where he would be delighted to have the chance to play for a club like Tottenham. He gives them the pace to run in behind and I wouldn’t be surprised if they do put a marker down and show they want to keep Pochettino and build for the future.
“I praised Tottenham in the summer because they realised they had an outstanding head coach who has performed nothing short of a miracle to get them in a position where can challenge Manchester City and Liverpool, but now they are in a position where they have to do something.”
