Pundit responds when asked if Tottenham Hotspur could sign Antoine Griezmann or Jamie Vardy in January

Tottenham Hotspur are expected to be on the look out for a new striker in January.

Micky Quinn has told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast Show, which was broadcast on TalkSPORT on 13th December, that Tottenham Hotspur have no chance of landing a striker like Jamie Vardy or Antoine Griezmann in the January transfer window.

Tottenham brought in Vincent Janssen last summer to try and add competition for places up-front, but the Dutch international has made a poor start at White Hart Lane.

There are now suggestions that Spurs could look to make a move for a striker in January, and Alan Brazil suggested that either Leicester’s Vardy and Atletico Madrid’s Griezmann should be on their shopping list.

“I’m just thinking who they could get in. Should they break the bank for Vardy of Griezmann,” he said.

But Quinn was far less convinced that Tottenham would be shopping in that market in January, suggesting that Mauricio Pochettino would struggle to do a deal for either.

“These lads are top players, but they’re in the Champions League with their own clubs at the moment, so they’re not going anywhere. January is a tough window to get a top class player,” Quinn said.

“I do think Pochettino needs to add to that squad, though.”

At this stage it is unknown how much money Tottenham will have to spend in January, but Pochettino has hinted that he would be open to business.

Spurs are once again fighting for a spot in the Premier League’s top four - and they currently sit in fifth place in the top flight.

Tottenham are next in action tomorrow evening, when they take on Hull City at White Hart Lane.
