Tottenham Hotspur are quickly running out of options up front under Jose Mourinho after failing to sign a replacement striker in the January transfer window.

Spurs knew they were up against it when Harry Kane ruptured his hamstring on New Years Day against Southampton, with the England captain needing surgery.

However, things have taken another turn for the worse today as the club announced that Heung Min Son would need his own surgical operation in the near future.

Sonny fractured his arm in the recent Premier League meeting with Aston Villa, although he did play on with the injury on the day and scored two goals.

Spurs say that Son will be out for weeks, while Jose Mourinho claimed that he would not be counting on the forward again this season.

Harry Winks has now reacted to the devastating blow on the eve of the club’s Champions League return, while also ruling himself out as a striker option.

He said (Football London): “Playing up front isn’t for me. It’s a massive blow for us and he’s in such good form for us. Brings more than just his goals to the team. Brings his work rate and energy Massive loss to us but we have good enough players to fill in. It’s important we don’t dwell on it as it’s not going to benefit us. We’ve found ways to dig in in the past.”
