Tottenham Hotspur found themselves without an experienced striker at the start of 2020.

Harry Kane pulled up during the New Year’s Day defeat at Southampton when he ruptured tendon in his left hamstring which left the England international requiring surgery.

Kane’s injury saw manager Jose Mourinho admitted that he was keen to add another forward to his ranks in the winter transfer window but came up empty handed (Daily Mail).

The failure to add a striker cost the North Londoners dearly when Heung-min Son joined Kane on the sidelines in February when he fractured his arm in the win at Aston Villa.

The Telegraph are now reporting that Mourinho once again is on the lookout for another striker ahead of the start of the Premier League campaign.

It is claimed that the Portuguese has set his sights on a target man, who can make an impact off the bench and also act as a back-up to Kane.

Spurs have been without a target man since they allowed Fernando Llorente to leave on a free transfer in the summer of 2019.
