Tottenham striker Harry Kane is expected to be out till March after picking up an ankle injury against Manchester United. With Son Heung-Min currently playing for South Korea in the Asia Cup, Spurs are short of options up front with Fernando Llorente as the only available senior  striker at the club.

Former Tottenham midfielder Jermain Jenas has insisted that Tottenham need to spend money in January and bring in a striker so that they are able to cope with the crucial fixtures coming up in the next 6 weeks.

In a column in the Daily Mail, Jenas wrote that Tottenham’s season hinges on how they perform for the next month and a half in Kane’s absence. Jenas offered up the names of several forwards who he believes Spurs can target to help them get through this spell.

The former midfielder wrote: “Of course, it’s difficult to get the right player right now. Unfortunately, Chelsea won’t be offering a helping hand as Michy Batshuayi would be the sort of player who could help. Or even Alvaro Morata.”

“Spurs may have to bring forward some of their plans for the summer. So, although more of a wide player, if the Brazilian Malcom is available from Barcelona, bring him in. Or Divock Origi, who seems to be wasting away at Liverpool”

Tottenham have been linked with the likes of Jarrod Bowen and Josh Maja in recent weeks which indicates that the club could be looking for a long-term option rather than just a short term over for Kane

  1. Get bowden in now,he is in form and english.If they don’t want to lose the player this month,sign and loan back till end of season or sign and loan them one of our players.If he keeps up playing like he is until end of season,all thebig guns will be in for him and we will lose out.Remember brooks and madison,we were the favourites to sign them but missed out.If we tried to sign either one now it would be double what we could have paid.
