The clock is ticking and Tottenham Hotspur still need a striker.

Spurs brought Gareth Bale back to the club on a season-long loan but the Real Madrid attacker is unlikely to be used as Harry Kane’s deputy.

And that’s exactly what Tottenham need, a reliable number nine to cover Kane throughout what promises to be another long season.

But with five days left in the transfer window, it remains to be seen if the North Londoners sign anybody.

One player they should perhaps look at is Edinson Cavani.

The veteran Uruguayan hitman remains a free agent after being released by Paris Saint-Germain and maybe, just maybe, he’d consider a stint in North London.

After all, the 33-year-old, who scored over 200 goals for PSG, said once upon a time that it would be an ‘honour’ to play under Jose Mourinho [The Telegraph].

But would Mourinho want him? Definitely.

This is a club who haven’t won a trophy since 2008 and Mourinho has been drafted in to change that.

And suffice to say that Cavani, who has won 20 trophies during his time in Europe, could seriously enhance the Lilywhites’ pedigree on that front, even as a back-up striker.

It’s difficult to win trophies if very few of the players have experience with regards to delivering silverware and Cavani, as Kane’s number two, would be one hell of an option.
