Tottenham Hotspur completed their third transfer of the January transfer window earlier today.

The club confirmed the arrival of Steven Bergwijn from PSV Eindhoven, who has followed Gedson Fernandes through the door in North London along with Giovani Lo Celso making his switch a permanent one.

Jose Mourinho admitted earlier this month that the club are keen to try and bring in another striker to help bolster the ranks (Football.London).

The Champions League finalists are currently without Harry Kane, with the forward not expected to return to training until at least April after undergoing hamstring surgery.  Kane’s absence has left Spurs short of a physical focal point to their attack.

Spurs have been linked with a number of target men during the current window including Chelsea’s Olivier Giroud (Fabrizio Romano) and Krzysztof Piatek (Goal).

The Athletic journalist Charlie Eccleshare has now claimed that Spurs no longer view the recruitment of a striker in the January transfer window as a necessity.
