Tottenham Hotspur are still without a second striker, despite having just had an entire month in January to source a replacement for the injured Harry Kane.

Kane picked up his ruptured hamstring tendon on the very first day of the transfer window, meaning Levy and co had plenty of warning.

After selling Vincent Janssen and releasing Fernando Llorente last summer, Kane was the sole remaining senior striker at the club, with Troy Parrott a youth option.

Mourinho has instead been forced to use Lucas Moura as his main man, while Heung Min Son and Steven Bergwijn can also act as makeshift strikers.

Although Kane will hopefully be fit and firing by then, it has been reported that Spurs are plotting a summer swoop for Fenerbahce centre-forward Vedat Muriqi.

Turkish Football say that £20m would be enough to secure the 25-year-old at the end of the season, with Spurs, Leicester City, and Aston Villa all monitoring him.

Spurs Web Opinion:

I have to say, Muriqi looks like a perfect like-for-like replacement for Kane. However, he should not just be there for when Harry gets injured. Used a second striker to give Kane rests to prevent the injuries altogether.

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. I think that this level of ambition is exactly the problem, so tired of Levy’s bargain basement approach to football, which is far to hit and miss to see Tottenham ever being truly competitive if they continue to follow this corner cutting philosophy. Surely now that we have one of the best stadiums around, the desire and appetite for better has to be the requisite goal! Anything else is merely a small club mentatlity
