Jose Mourinho has once again admitted that he is open to bringing a new striker to the club.

Tottenham’s New Year started in the worst possible way when Harry Kane was ruled out of action until at least April when he tore his hamstring during the latter stages of the defeat at Southampton.

With Spurs currently devoid of a target man, Mourinho has once again stressed that if he does dip into the market it has to be for a player who has to be able to make an impact at the club long-term rather than just at the present moment.

Spurs have been linked with 32-year-old PSG forward Edinson Cavani, with Mourinho unwilling to discuss the rumour out of respect for the French club (Goal).

Finding the back of the net has been a problem having failed to score in the league since drawing 2-2 at Norwich on 28 December. They could equal their Premier League club record of four consecutive matches without scoring when they face the Canaries this evening.

When asked during yesterday’s press conference about bringing in another striker, Mourinho told Football.London: “Yeah [a new striker needs to come in] but to do something you have to do something that is good for our future too, not just good for tomorrow,”

“It must be something that is good for the future too and of course the club is very aware of it and the club is very committed of course but we want to do something that is right by every point of view.

“So I don’t speak about other players from other clubs about things that can happen or not happen because that’s not me and that’s not the way Tottenham operate too, but we are trying to see if any good opportunities arise.”
