Tottenham are unlikely to sign a new striker this month unless they can raise the funds needed from selling players, according to The Athletic.
Spurs are set to undergo a rebuild process led by Antonio Conte, who has already reportedly outlined the positions in his squad that need strengthening in the coming weeks.
The Italian is said to have put a new right wing-back, centre-back and forward on the list of priorities as he looks to put his own stamp on the Tottenham squad.
However, Spurs may end up having to leave a new striker off Conte’s wish list, with The Athletic claiming an acquisition will only be made if the club can offload players this month.
The report states that Spurs will be braced to endure the rest of the campaign without a back-up for Kane, who has remained the lone striker since the club opted not to sign Carlos Vinicius permanently after his loan expired last season.
But, further reports have suggested funds could be raised this month through the likes of Dele Alli, Tanguy Ndombele, Steven Bergwijn and Matt Doherty, who have all been tipped to be outgoings in the coming weeks.

Spurs do need another senior striker to come in as one Kane injury will derail the entire season. They have been lucky that Heung-min Son has been able to step into the role too, but he can also pick up an injury at any point so it’s a situation that really needs addressing.
