Tottenham Hotspur and Jose Mourinho will now have to deal without Harry Kane for the next few months after the striker underwent surgery on his left hamstring.

While Spurs have coped without their main man before, the new Jose Mourinho style that emphasised long balls and hold-up play may struggle with Son and Moura up top.

In terms of other options, ex-Spurs striker Darren Bent believes that Mourinho should avoid bringing Fernando Llorente back to the club just months after he left.

He also claimed that Danny Ings would be a good option, but would cost too much money for Spurs. Finally, Bent named England international Callum Wilson as a viable option.

Wilson has struggled this season and has just five goals and one assist to his name in 21 games for Bournemouth in the Premier League (TransferMarkt).

However, he showed what he is capable of last season when he bagged 14 goals and ten assists for his club in just 30 Premier League games (TransferMarkt).

Bent said (Sky Sports The Transfer Show on 14/01/20 at 7:45 pm): “Llorente he knows the club, he struggled a little bit with form because he was inconsistent with the game time he was getting, so you could never get the best of him.

“But they have to go out and buy somebody. I thought Danny Ings maybe. But that was going to cost a lot of money, especially with the way Southampton are going, you wouldn’t be able to get him.

“I looked at Callum Wilson as well. That was maybe another option. He would perhaps want to make the move. I know Bournemouth are in the relegation zone, but you think he would probably look at that and go ‘you know I fancy my chances of getting myself in there and getting some game time’.”
