Spurs need a striker – Mourinho

Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho has admitted his team need to bring in a striker this month, if possible.

The North London club allowed Fernando Llorente to leave and join Napoli as a free agent last summer without securing a replacement, risking being left without a striker should anything happen to captain Harry Kane. As luck would have it, Kane picked up a serious injury and won’t be back in training, let alone playing games, before April at best, it has been confirmed.

In Kane’s absence, head coach Jose Mourinho has been forced to shuffle his cards and play Son Heung-min and Lucas Moura, both wingers rather than strikers, as the players closest to the opposition goal. Not disrespecting the quality of those two, as well as Erik Lamela, the Portuguese tactician admitted that a designated striker is needed when asked about it at the press conference preceding his team’s trip to Watford on Saturday.

He also made it clear that any potential deal would have to be done in a way that suits his club.
