As Tottenham Hotspur continues to falter and flail in the transfer market, neither moving out deadwood nor adding new talent, Spurs are playing a dangerous game.
Now two weeks into the winter transfer window, Tottenham Hotspur appears no closer to bringing in new talent or selling excess players than they did in December before the window opens. Now as the injuries continue to mount for Tottenham, Spurs are on the precipice of a dangerous fall if they are not careful. Failure to support their new footballing leadership – the Director and Coach – in this window could be catastrophic on many levels.
Tottenham needs cover in the attack now
Heung-min Son’s injury only exacerbated a problem that already existed, Tottenham Hotspur does not have enough depth in the forward position. The long-short of it is that Tottenham still only has one out-and-out striker on the team in Harry Kane.
While Son, Steven Bergwijn, Lucas Moura, and others have tried to play up top in Spurs’ attack, none of them are truly strikers and the lack of depth is killing the team. As Harry Kane is run into the ground to the point of injury, things are only going to get bleaker on the attacking front.
Kane was already slow to get up from a late tackle against Chelsea and was holding his groin as he did so. In years past, as one attacker went down, it put more pressure on the others who would eventually succumb to the load as well. As Kane continues to get every big minute – including those at the end of Morecambe – the odds of Spurs talisman going down to injury only increase.
With Son out for a critical three-game run coming up, losing Kane would be catastrophic and if the cover does not come in, we can almost guarantee Kane will get injured and miss at least some game time.
