Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has assured fans the club are working hard on signing a striker in the final few weeks of the transfer window. While Harry Kane has established himself as one of the world’s best strikers in recent years, it’s also meant Tottenham have struggled to bring in a capable back-up.
Fernando Llorente and Vincent Janssen have been brought in during past windows but neither have made a regular impact when called upon.
Both strikers have now moved on and Spurs entered last season with Kane as their only recognised option through the middle.
And they were made to pay when Kane suffered a thigh injury in January.
It would keep him out of action until the Premier League restart, with Heung-min Son and Lucas Moura playing out of position up top.

Mourinho is desperate to ensure Tottenham don’t end the transfer window without signing a second striker this summer.
And he’s revealed Spurs chairman Daniel Levy shares the same view with Mourinho confident a deal will be done at some stage.
“Yes I want, I need a striker,” he said.
“But I want to make it very clear, the club knows I need a striker and they also want a striker.

Tottenham boss Mourinho has transfer ‘problem’ he won’t need to solve
“Are we going to get one? Yes, I believe so.
“For the balance, the team needs it.”
Spurs have so far gone for players with Premier League experience in the summer transfer window.
Matt Doherty and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg have joined, adding some quality to their defence and midfield.
Joe Hart has also come in to provide competition with Hugo Lloris and Paulo Gazzaniga.
Tottenham have already missed out on previous targets Callum Wilson and Ollie Watkins, who joined Newcastle and Aston Villa respectively.
RB Salzburg’s Patson Daka and Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik have been linked with moves to Tottenham in recent weeks.
But Mourinho will have to start the season with Kane as his sole option up front, beginning with a home match against Everton on Sunday (4.30pm).
