Tottenham Hotspur failed to sign a striker during the January transfer window which appeared to backfire on the North London side.
Star marksman Harry Kane tore his left hamstring during the New Year’s Day defeat to Southampton at St Mary’s with the injury requiring surgery and is yet to return to action.
His team-mate, Heung-min Son who has capably filled the goalscoring void left by Kane’s absence in recent seasons also found himself sidelined when he fractured his arm in the 3-2 win at Aston Villa last month.
Tottenham and North London rivals Arsenal have both been linked with a move for Wolves forward Raul Jimenez (ESPN).
The Mexican international only moved to Molineux last summer when he completed a permanent transfer from Benfica following a successful loan spell.
The 28-year-old scored 13 goals and provided seven assists in 38 league matches for Wolves, according to WhoScored.
Any hopes which Tottenham may have harboured of making a move for Jimenez in the summer appear to have been dashed after the player revealed during an interview on Facebook Live of his intention to remain in the Black Country, even if they fail to qualify for the Champions League.
