Jose Mourinho is looking to continue his good business in the transfer window so far and is pushing Tottenham to do more.
Tottenham Hotspur showed signs of vulnerability last season when they missed their forwards Harry Kane and Heung-min Son through injuries. Jose Mourinho has had problems in replacing the two goal-scoring players and wants to ignore such kind of difficulties during the ongoing campaign.
The Portuguese coach has demanded to the management that a back-up striker needs to be brought in during the next two weeks, according to Football London. The likes of Andrea Belloti, Danny Ings and Luka Jovic are looking like interesting options, but they could be tough propositions in their own ways..
Andrea Bellotti had a fruitful campaign last season for Torino last season. The Italy international made a total of 44 appearances and amassed 22 goals across all competitions. The striker has been consistent for the Serie A side since his arrival in 2015, but his fees may prove to be an issue.
Real Madrid outcast Jovic has not been Zinedine Zidane’s first choice striker and finds himself warming the benches more often. The Serbian had limited game time at the Santiago Bernabeu as the striker managed to make only 17 appearances and scored 2 goals in his debut season. With a loan move very much on the cards, he could be the man to help Tottenham out, at least temporarily.
Southampton striker Danny Ings is another attractive option for the Spurs. The English striker has been top performer for the Saints as he scored 22 goals in the Premier League last season and posed as another worthy option for the Lilywhites, but his current club has vehemently ruled out any chances of a departure.
The arrivals of Gareth Bale and Sergio Reguilon have already lift the spirits of the club. Both signings are expected to iron out the weaknesses of the squad and also improve the team overall but Spurs are yet to add a backup striker for their squad and it is now clear that they may struggle without one given the perfect specimens from Kane and Son being absent last season.
Jose Mourinho will be assessing the options available to Tottenham and will decide to bid for a striker. So far, there hasn’t been any confirmation from the club whether they have made an official bid to any of the clubs for the services of a striker. The chances of buying a striker look balanced for now but the final days of the transfer window might yield a different outcome.
