Tottenham Hotspur have been without their star man, Harry Kane, for over two months now, after the England captain suffered a nasty injury on New Years Day.
Kane overstretched for the ball against Southampton at St Mary’s, only to rupture the tendon in his left hamstring. He eventually required surgery on the injury.
The club had previously sold Vincent Janssen and let Fernando Llorente leave on a free in the summer, meaning that Kane was the only remaining senior natural striker.
Heung-min Son, often trusted to come up with the goals in Kane’s absence, was doing just that in January and February until he fractured his arm against Aston Villa.
The South Korea also required surgery on the injury, leaving Spurs with no other player who had scored double-digit goals in the season at that time.
Daniel Levy has now revealed that he and the club were disappointed not to sign a new striker in the January window, but were glad to secure Steven Bergwijn from PSV.
This came from the minutes of a meeting between Levy and the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust, which read as follows:
‘DL said there are lots of attacking players in the squad. The club was disappointed not to be able to bring in another striker but pleased they were able to bring in another attacking player in the recent window.’
