Football Transfers have claimed that Tottenham Hotspur have decided against signing a centre-forward in the January transfer window.

Over the last few weeks, multiple outlets have claimed that Spurs are on the lookout for a number nine to fill Harry Kane’s shoes, with Ivan Toney (Daily Express) and Santiago Gimenez being (Mirror) heavily linked with a move to N17.

However, Football Transfers have now alleged that Tottenham will not be signing an out-and-out striker in January, with Ange Postecoglou feeling that Son Heung-min can continue to thrive centrally.

Tottenham will not move for Ivan Toney in January

The report adds that while Spurs did hold an interest in Toney, they have been put off by the exorbitant fee that Brentford demanded for the 27-year-old.

However, the publication adds that the Lilywhites have not been entirely happy with how some of their wide players have performed this season and are expected to be in the market for a winger when the transfer window reopens.

I have always believed that Ange is likely to put off the decision on a centre-forward until next summer, making do with Son, Richarlison and Veliz as his options for the rest of the season.

A versatile attacker who can play on either flank is undoubtedly a bigger priority, particularly given Perisic’s injury.
