Since the announcement of Harry Kane’s ankle injury, Tottenham have been linked with a number of attacking replacements in the transfer window.

Spurs failed to sign a single player in the summer, and will likely only bring in one, if any, this January.

Kane is said to be out until early March, with Heung Min Son away on international duty, and Lucas Moura also nursing an injury.

Earlier this week, Tottenham were linked with ex-Man United striker Giuseppe Rossi, a player who is currently training with the Red Devils.

Rossi is without a contract after Genoa let his deal run down in the summer after various injury issues.

Reports suggested that Tottenham may take him on in a pay-as-you-play type deal, just to fill a gap until their first team strikers returned.

However, Pochettino has now dampened these rumours, stating that Spurs are not considering Rossi, and a deal is not possible.

Poch said (Football London): “I think there’s many names that appear in every transfer window. He’s another name to add on the list but it’s only a rumour. We are not considering him. It’s a rumour like another but if you ask me, I think no, it’s not a possibility.”
