Report: Tottenham Hotspur unlikely to move for new striker in January

“Unlikely to move for new striker in January,” according to Tottenham Hotspur

It’s highly doubtful that Tottenham Hotspur would recruit a straight successor for Harry Kane in the January transfer window.

Spurs made a summertime splash by selling their iconic striker, but they did not purchase a comparable replacement for the club’s all-time top scorer.

Rather of moving Son Heung-min from a wide position into the midfield, Brennan Johnson was brought in from Nottingham Forest to supplement their current senior alternatives. Spurs went on to have their finest Premier League start in a while after that, winning ten games straight before losing to Chelsea and Wolverhampton Wanderers prior to the international break.

Despite the considerable amount of players that arrived at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the summer, the funds generated from Kane’s sale means that January additions are likely.

Due to Spurs’ deficiency in depth at the position, a central defense is thought to be the top priority; nonetheless, it has been speculated that another center forward may be the objective.

Of Spurs’ 24 Premier League goals this season, Son has scored precisely one-third of them; Johnson and Richarlison have each only managed one goal.

Alejo Veliz has been given 10 minutes of Premier League action in three substitute appearances; nonetheless, at this point in time, the young Argentine is not considered a senior player.

However, Football Insider reports that no plans are in place at this time to bring further competition down the center of the assault.

According to reports, Postecoglou is happy with the alternatives at his disposal and is more likely to acquire a wide player.

To make room for new players, a number of Spurs senior players may be traded, with Giovani Lo Celso being the most recent to be connected to a departure.

In addition to proposals for Eric Dier’s services, which are open until the summer, there may be changes in Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s circumstances, even if he hasn’t played much recently.

Spurs will spend the rest of the season concentrating on finishing in the top four of the Premier League and winning the FA Cup, since they have no plans for the EFL Cup or European competition.
