Mourinho won’t demand Tottenham buy a new striker in January

With Harry Kane out through injury, Jose Mourinho is ready to fight without the star forward and says he won’t request a new player to fill the void.

Harry Kane will be out until sometime in April, with the striker requiring surgery on a hamstring injury, leaving Jose and Spurs short-handed in attack.

In effect, Tottenham have been linked with several names, including Moussa Dembele and Paris Saint Germain’s veteran striker Edison Cavani.

However, Jose Mourinho has revealed he won’t be looking to sign a new striker this winter and will make do with what he has.

When asked if he plans to request a new signing to replace injured Harry Kane, Mou told talkSPORT: “No”.

“I think (Tottenham chairman) Daniel Levy today is proud of the players because of what the players did.

“He’s proud of one kid [Japhet Tanganga] that’s come from the academy and showed the world he is a new player for the Premier League level.

“And Daniel Levy always tries to do the best for the club and he’ll do what he thinks is the best and what he thinks is possible.”

Meanwhile, Tottenham lost 1-0 to league leaders Liverpool on Saturday with Mourinho opting for a 3-4-3 formation, and Son Heung-min standing in for the striker, while Dele Alli and Lucas Moura filled the wing role.
