Tottenham Hotspur are yet to make a signing in the January transfer window, just like they didn't over the summer.
Daniel Levy must take action at Tottenham Hotspur now, as their need for a new striker has hardly ever been greater.
Harry Kane damaged his ankle yesterday, and while the severity of the injury is not yet known, there are fears that he could be out for weeks.
And the problem could hardly have happened at a worse time for Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
Tottenham are already set to lose Heung-Min Son to the Asian Cup, while Vincent Janssen is completely out of favour.
It leaves Pochettino’s striking options looking very short, with Fernando Llorente and Erik Lamela looking like the only two senior players who could fill the void if Kane is out.
Llorente is yet to really prove he is capable of playing regularly for Spurs, while Lamela is more comfortable as an attacking midfielder than an out and out striker.
If Pochettino’s side are made to without Kane and Son, then the consequences could be disastrous.
Tottenham are in a commanding position in the race for the top four, but without a striker things will only become more difficult.
And Levy needs to take action this month, if Kane is set to be out for weeks, as Spurs may need a more capable striker to ensure they keep their spot in the Champions League qualification places.
