Tottenham Hotspur striker, Harry Kane, has been ruled out with a hamstring injury until early April after he was forced to undergo surgery.
Kane ruptured the tendon in his left hamstring against Southampton on New Years Day, with the club announcing later that surgery had been needed.
While Kane is always a huge loss to Spurs, this is perhaps even more prevalent this season as the club have no other natural senior strikers.
As such, Tottenham have been linked with a whole host of forwards over the past two weeks, with one of the most recent additions being Edinson Cavani. This comes after the striker handed in a transfer request, according to Sky Sports.
It was reported this week that Chelsea and Atletico Madrid were both interested in the PSG man, while Mourinho is a big fan but Cavani’s wages could prove a stumbling block for Spurs (Telegraph).
Mourinho was asked about the chances of Cavani joining Spurs today, to which the manager refused to give an answer out of respect. However, he did joke than an Mbappe loan deal would be most welcome.
Charlie Eccleshare reported that Jose said:
On the chances of Cavani joining #THFC, Mourinho said: I have good relations with PSG, and I’m not going to disrespect them.
He then jokes that if PSG want to loan Mbappe then that will be fine.
