Sky Sports News’ Kaveh Solhekol has claimed that Tottenham are not looking to sign a new striker this transfer window.
Despite having the likes of Harry Kane, Carlos Vinicius and Heung Min-Son all in his attack, there has been some reports in the media which have claimed that Spurs Boss Jose Mourinho is eyeing up another striker this month.
And Saints superstar Dany Ings has been a player that the club have been linked with over the past few months, after news broke that he has yet to agree a new contract to stay with the club, despite being the main man.
However, Solhekol has come out and suggested that Mourinho is not looking to bolster his attack this window, he told Sky Sports: “I’m not sure Spurs are searching for a striker. I think it’s more of a case of Danny Ings is in talks with Southampton about extending his contract – a very good offer has been made to him – and there have been suggestions that he is going to wait and see if other options are available.
“One of those options could be Spurs. Jose Mourinho was asked about Ings today and as you would expect, he said he wouldn’t talk about players who are currently at other clubs.
But he also said: “We’re not a team that needs a third striker at the moment. The third striker is Sonny [Heung-Min Son] and we have the best.” He also went on to say they are happy with Carlos Vinicius, who they signed in the last window as a back-up for Harry Kane.”
If Spurs are to sign a new player this transfer window, a new defender or creative midfielder should be high up on the shopping list
