With reports of Vincent Janssen's potential exit, Tottenham could have a real problem

Tottenham Hotspur surely must sign another striker this summer.

This summer will be a vitally important one for Tottenham.

They have made a good start with their summer business, but a lot of work is still to be done.

Spurs have signed Tanguy Ndombele and Jack Clarke, with the latter being sent back to Leeds United on loan for the season.

Mauricio Pochettino has undoubtedly strengthened his midfield, but there is one area that is crying out for more quality - their attacking department.

 

Fernando Llorente's contract has expired, and as things stand, it seems as though it is highly unlikely that he will return to Tottenham, with a switch to Spain proving to be more appealing, according to the Sun.

Meanwhile, Vincent Janssen is close to joining Mexican side Monterrey, according to Football.London.

And that could leave Spurs incredibly short up front, with Harry Kane as the only out and out striker.

Heung-Min Son and Lucas Moura can, of course, both play through the middle, but Pochettino would ideally use them both as wingers.

So whilst Tottenham reportedly chase another midfielder in the shape of Giovani Lo Celso (The London Evening Standard), perhaps they should really be prioritising the signing of an established striker instead.

The problem is, however, that the truly elite strikers will be hesitant to join Spurs, because they will not want to play second fiddle to Kane.

So Pochettino might just have to target a forward who isn't quite in the so-called elite bracket.

Whatever happens though, Tottenham must address their lack of options in the final third, if they are to challenge for major honours next season.
