Tottenham goal-machine Harry Kane does not believe that his side necessarily need to make new signings during the January transfer window.
Spurs are currently in second spot on the Premier League standings and are six points adrift of first-placed Liverpool. The 5-0 Boxing Day victory against Burnley means that the Lilywhites have now won their past five successive League games.
After failing to make a single new signing last summer, Spurs are so far exceeding expectations in the League. The one area where Spurs need bolstering is up front. Harry Kane is the only out and out striker in the squad who can score goals on a regular basis.
Fernando Llorente and Vincent Janssen have proven to not be consistent enough to supply sufficient cover and competition to Kane. Spurs definitely need to focus on offloading the duo and should look into bringing in a more confident striker to the club.
England international Kane remains confident that his side do not need to make signings this January as they look to break their trophy drought.
Kane told ESPN on Thursday: “Sometimes if you can’t find the right player there’s no need to buy a player.
“That’s obviously the gaffer’s philosophy and that was his thinking [in the summer]. He believed in the squad he had and we’re doing alright so far.
“We’ll see what happens in the January transfer window. If the gaffer wants to buy someone then I’m sure he will. If he doesn’t we’ll crack on and keep doing what we’re doing.
“We’re fit, we’re ready to go. This period where there’s lots of games, we seem to do well because we recover well and we do a lot outside the pitch as well.
“[Signings are] up to the manager. If a new face comes in then we’ll welcome him and make sure he trains hard, and he’ll obviously try to get into the team. If we don’t then we’ve got a big enough squad that we can rotate — players have been coming in and doing well. We’ll be ready either way.”
