Danny Murphy stresses the dangerous situation facing Mauricio Pochettino

Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Danny Murphy has stressed the fine line the club are walking in the transfer market.

Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Danny Murphy told talkSPORT that one of two things needs to happen in relation to the club’s attack and creating support for Harry Kane.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is going to be under real pressure for the rest of the transfer window, because there is a need for the club to bring in another striker.

Murphy has stressed how dangerous the current situation is for the club suggesting that a new forward needs to be snapped up or someone needs to step forward and show they can score important goals for the team.

“He’s a strong lad, he’s young and he can play the games but that’s not the issue. It could be a suspension, it could be a niggle, it could just be a bad month but you really need someone else to contribute – You need another striker you can rely on who you know will get you double figures,” he told talkSPORT.

Could someone step up in the squad?

There are a number of talented attacking players in Tottenham’s squad with the likes of Nacer Chadli and Christian Eriksen weighing in with vital goals last season.

However, they’re doing a very good job in their respective positions and the sense in moving them is limited for the manager.

It’s an option that Pochettino should consider in an emergency and not as a regular theme for the coming year.

A new striker the most likely option

The best and most sensible option is simply Tottenham getting some business done in the transfer window.

There is plenty of time left for Spurs to make an attacking signing before the deadline looms in and if they get it right then the pressure is partially removed from Kane and the club benefits from a new source of goals.
