Report: An unusual solution to Tottenham’s striker woes

Tottenham Hotspur have been slapped in the face by one hell of a dilemma this month, as Harry Kane fell foul to yet another ankle injury last weekend.

The star striker felt the full force of a Phil Jones challenge, before hobbling off the field at full time.

Kane will not be out injured until early March, with Heung Min Son away on international duty, and Lucas Moura nursing a knock of his own.

Tottenham must now make do with Fernando Llorente, and any academy players they may want to call up, unless they delve into the transfer market.

It seems unlikely that Spurs will splash the cash in January, but a loan move could be a solution to suit all parties.

HITC report that Spurs could move for an MLS striker, as the American season doesn’t start up until March.

This has seen the likes of Everton and Villa sign Landon Donovan and Robbie Keane respectively in the past.

HITC suggest Wayne Rooney or Zlatan Ibrahimović as two big name signings.

The Express reported that Tottenham actually made an approach regarding Zlatan just before he signed for United.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Seems highly unlikely that Zatlan Ibrahimovic would come to Spurs, even if that were a plausible solution in anything other than being a very short term outlook. I have maintained for a very long time now that Spurs are woefully short of genuine strikers of a calibre necessary to be credibly challenging for top honours. For me this is where Levy seems to be missing the point and why we are falling short year in year out!

  2. Get Origi from Liverpool and Harry Wilson on loan at Derby but a Liverpool Player also.
    Should be able to get both for 50mil. Happy Days!
