Tottenham Hotspur head coach, Jose Mourinho, was back in front of the media this afternoon for his first press conference of the season.

Spurs face Everton at home in their opening Premier League fixture of the 2020/21 season, although it seems as if the Lilywhites still have transfer business to conduct.

Daniel Levy and co have already introduced the signings of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Joe Hart, and Matt Doherty this summer, with Kyle Walker-Peters being sold to Southampton.

However, Mourinho has now highlighted his desire and need for a new striker in North London in order to compete with and support Harry Kane.

With Fernande Llorente having been let go on a free last summer and Vincent Janssen sold in the same window, Kane was left as the only senior striker last season.

Even young Troy Parrott has now been loaned out to Millwall for the upcoming campaign, leaving the injury-prone Kane to shoulder the burden of a congested fixture schedule alone.

In the press conference, Kane claimed that the club were aware of his wants and he believes that Tottenham will be signing a striker this window (Jonathan Veal and Matt Law).

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. We as fans said we needed a striker when Llorente and Janssen were sold. Levy and Enic did nothing, Harry goes down injured we cry louder for a striker, Enic response we have striker targets, Piatak, Jose and Giroud linked no striker 7 weeks into the summer window still Enic Levy no striker and today finally Mourinho repeats we are looking for a striker. Is it me or does anyone want to laugh at that statement of Levy we shop in the same market as United, Liverpool and Chelsea. That we shop on the top of pyramid. That he doesn’t sleep every easy at night when we don’t exit a window stronger . That must be a few years of sleep lost for Levy
