Report: Tottenham not interested in veteran striker

Tottenham Hotspur are in the middle of a striker crisis at the moment with Harry Kane ruled out with an ankle injury and Son Heung-Min still involved in the Asian Cup with South Korea.

To make matters worse Dele Alli had to be taken off during Spurs’ game against Fulham on Sunday due to a hamstring problem and is not expected back until early March.

To help deal with the injury crisis, Spurs are said to be interested in adding a striker to the squad this January. The Lillywhites have been linked with the several forwards in recent weeks including likes of Jarrod Bowen, Josh Maja, Callum Wilson, and Eden Dzeko.

The Sun reported yesterday that Tottenham are considering bringing in West Ham striker Andy Carroll to help them deal with the shortage of strikers.

The 30-year-old has hardly featured for the Hammers this season and his current contract with the club runs out at the end of the current campaign. The report claimed that Carroll was available for a price of just £2 million.

Needless to say, some Spurs fans weren’t best pleased with the prospect of signing the injury-prone 30-year-old. Thankfully for these fans, Sky Sports reported today that Carroll is not on Tottenham’s radar this January.

This, of course, comes as no surprise as Carroll hardly fits the mould of a typical Spurs signing and it is not clear if he would offer anything that Fernando Llorente doesn’t.
