Tottenham Hotspur will likely be without Harry Kane for the long-term this season after the striker was forced to undergo surgery on his left hamstring in January.

Kane managed to rupture the tendon in his left hamstring while stretching to tap home a goal against Southampton on New Years Day, a goal that was then ruled out for offside.

Spurs announced that they expect Kane to resume training in early April, leaving them without him for around three months.

As such, the club have been linked with plenty of strikers in the January transfer window of late, with the latest coming from Scotland and Rangers.

Football Insider claim that Spurs are planning a late swoop for Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos this window, with the 23-year-old Colombian impressing this season.

Morelos has 28 goals and nine assists in all competitions for Rangers this season, with six goals coming in the Europa League (Transfer Markt).

Spurs Web Opinion:

This seems like the perfect Kane back-up. Young, hungry, in good form, capable of scoring plenty of goals, while also being a natural striker. I would love to see Tottenham make a bid.
