Former Arsenal player Ian Wright has had his say on what Tottenham Hotspur should do to solve their current issues in attack.

Harry Kane sustained ankle ligament damage in the recent defeat to Manchester United which has sidelined him until at least early March.

Heung-min Son’s involvement in the Asian Cup with South Korea has added another layer of frustration with the player potentially unavailable until after February 3rd.

Mauricio Pochettino instilled his faith in Fernando Llorente to lead the line against Fulham on Sunday, however, the 33-year-old Spaniard failed to make an impact – apart from putting the ball into his own net during the first half.

Wright, who now works as a pundit for the BBC believes that West Ham United’s Andy Carroll would not be the solution to Tottenham’s problems as he would not fit in with Mauricio Pochettino’s expectations.

However, Wright did suggest that Liverpool’s Divock Origi would be a better fit.

“Come on man [on Andy Carroll signing],” Wright told 606 on BBC Radio Five Live. “I saw Andy Carroll come off the other day with the raving hump. It’s one of those situations with the way Tottenham play. Can you honestly see Carroll playing at Spurs?

“They need something. Divock Origi is not a bad one. Is Klopp going to let him go?”
