Tottenham Hotspur are set to be without their main man for the long-term after Harry Kane managed to rupture the tendon in his left hamstring on New Years Day.
Spurs later revealed that the striker needed surgery and would be expected back in training in early April, leaving Mourinho without a frontman for three months.
The Special One has operated with Heung Min Son and Lucas Moura in strike positions in recent weeks, although neither could be classed as out-and-out strikers.
One lead surgeon specialising in the type of surgery Kane had has even claimed that the England captain could be out for six months and may even miss the Euros in the summer.
With Fernando Llorente gone and Vincent Janssen sold, Spurs are in need of a new centre-forward and Jose Mourinho seems keen on bringing one in.
He claims that Spurs are looking to bring in that type of player, but it has to be the right move for the club.
He said (Alasdair Gold): “Lots of names, I think the majority are from players’ entourage looking to put their names into the market. Do we need a striker? Yes, but it has to be a positive move for us. It’s not easy but we’re trying to add that type of player to the squad.”
