Some Spurs fans on social media are panicking after reports emerged suggesting Tottenham are unlikely to land Olivier Giroud from Chelsea on deadline day.
The Athletic’s David Ornstein reported today that Chelsea failed in their attempts to secure a replacement for Giroud and so are unlikely to let him leave.
The final nail in the coffin was Frank Lampard’s confirmation that the 33-year-old is going nowhere this month (BBC).
Additionally, a report in Football Insider today revealed that Jose Mourinho has blocked Troy Parrott’s proposed loan move to the Championship as Spurs are uncertain whether they will be able to sign a striker before the close of the transfer window.
With Harry Kane expected to be out until April, it will be a massive blow if the club fails to get in a centre forward before the transfer window shuts.
With just hours left in the transfer window, some Spurs fans were getting extremely concerned that no forward looked close to moving to North London.
Being annoyed that Spurs are not signing Giroud is not something I thought I would be feeling. This is what our search for a striker has come to 🤦♂️

We’ve had all month to get a striker in & still nothing, it really is farcical! How any #THFC can be okay with this is beyond me. Hertha got the Piatek deal done pretty quickly so #Levy has no excuses! #Pathetic #COYS

If we dont sign a decent striker today, Spurs will be exiting Europe shortly too 😔

Spurs please sign a striker.

I hope we sign SOMEONE but I’m also kind of morbidly fascinated to see the meltdown if we don’t. #COYS

Some fans on social media certainly look like they are going to have a meltdown if Levy fails to sign a striker by the end of the day. In fairness, they cannot be blamed as it has been clear that a centre forward was the most urgent requirement this month. Let’s can somehow pull something off today.
