Tottenham will reportedly look to sign an attacker in the January transfer window on the condition that a deal is there to be done.

According to Football London, Nuno Espirito Santo’s side are eager to bring in an extra forward in the New Year. Tottenham currently have just three attackers in their squad.

As per the report, there is currently ‘too much pressure’ on Harry Kane and Dane Scarlett. Whilst Heung-min Son is another player who simply needs assistance with the workload.

Spurs were linked with numerous attackers over the summer transfer window. However, only Bryan Gil was brought in as Erik Lamela went the other way to Sevilla. Since the start of the season, goals have been an issue for Tottenham.

Kane has only just scored his first goal of the Premier League season. Whilst the likes of Everton, Brentford and Newcastle United have bagged more goals in the division than Tottenham.

With Scarlett just beginning his senior footballing career, Kane also remains Tottenham’s sole centre-forward. And as per the report, Spurs will find it hard to find a player who is both of suitable age and willing to act second fiddle to the England captain.

The north London side had Carlos Vinicius on loan from Benfica. But the Brazilian attacker struggled to adapt to life in the Premier League, with the striker scoring just one goal in the top-flight.

January will be a key window of opportunity for Tottenham, and an attacker must be at the top of Fabio Paratici’s list. Given Kane’s injury record and Scarlett’s inexperience, getting a third forward in is key.

Moreover, with Spurs likely to be in the knockout stages of the UEFA Europa Conference League, backup to Kane will be paramount if Nuno wants to win the competition. And for Tottenham, will have to be smart over which attacker they choose to sign.
