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).
Jose Mourinho on signing a striker: “I want to make it very, very clear that the club knows that I need a striker and they also want a striker. Are we going to get one? I believe so, I honestly believe so.” #THFC #COYS
