Tottenham Hotspur have now been without Harry Kane for almost one month exactly, yet no replacement has been acquired by Daniel Levy in the January transfer market.
The window slams shut today at 11 pm, meaning that Spurs now have a matter of hours to seal a deal for a centre-forward. If they do not, they will be forced to play on without one until Harry Kane returns.
However, Kane is said to be out until early April, when he should make a return to training. This comes after the striker had to undergo surgery on the ruptured tendon in his hamstring earlier this month.
Previous understudy, Fernando Llorente, was released on a free last summer. Third-choice Vincent Janssen was also sold during that same window.
This leaves just an injury-prone Kane and young Troy Parrott at the club, although the latter is still just 17-years-old.
Alasdair Gold of Football London claims that Spurs are still looking to sign a striker on deadline day, but things are not looking too promising.
Spurs Web Opinion:
At this point, pick a big centre-forward from the Championship, pay a fee, and lump him up top for a couple of months. Spurs need a focal point and they have wasted a whole month to get the ideal one.
