Tottenham Hotspur continue to be without the services of an out and out striker in what is proving to be a difficult season.

Jose Mourinho’s side once again failed to close the gap on fourth-placed Chelsea yesterday after suffering a frustrating 3-2 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Trailing 3-2 with just under twenty minutes to go, the Portuguese waited until injury time before throwing on 18-year-old forward Troy Parrott.

The absence of Harry Kane and Heung-min Son is proving to be costly for the North Londoners who are now in serious risk of missing out on Champions League football for the first time in five seasons.

Spurs were linked with a number of forwards last month including Real Sociedad’s William Jose (Marca) and Olivier Giroud of Chelsea (The Sun) only for the club to fail to bolster their front line.

News broke earlier that Daniel Sturridge has left Turkish outfit Trabzonspor as a free agent by mutual consent just six months into his three-year deal (Sky Sports).

Free agents can typically join clubs outside of a transfer window but Football.London claim that Spurs will be unable to snap him up.

The report suggests that Premier League rules stipulate that a player must have been made a free agent before the closure of the transfer window to be able to join a new side outside of the window.

Not only this, but even if Sturridge was signed, it has since been announced that he is banned from any footballing activity until June for breaking gambling regulations.
