Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jermaine Jenas told the BBC’s Match Of The Day that he thinks Mauricio Pochettino’s team lack a real cutting edge at the moment.
Jenas, speaking during the show, commented on the fact that Spurs didn’t have a forward coming off of the bench when the manager was forced to withdraw Harry Kane during the game.
Clinton Njie has signed on the dotted line of a long term deal for the club, but there is still arguably a need for extra attacking reinforcements at Spurs.
“I think when Harry Kane went off – They didn’t have a striker coming on – It showed that they’ve got a real lack of a cutting edge at the moment,” he said on the BBC’s MOTD.
Plenty of time to go
There is still plenty of time for Tottenham to do some business before the close of the transfer window on September 1.
The club have decent resources to be able to sign a player from one of their Premier League rivals or if they need to think outside the box in terms of foreign players who could come in.
It’s vital that the club looks to sign extra attacking support because Harry Kane needs competition for his place and the side need someone who gives the manager a Plan B.
Kane simply can’t be relied on for the rest of the season, because teams are wiser in terms of playing against him and it creates an immense physical strain over a very young man.
