Tottenham Will Sign A New Striker – Jose Mourinho
Tottenham head coach Jose Mourinho believes the club will sign a new striker before the summer transfer window shuts on Monday.
Harry Kane is the only recognised centre-forward in Spurs’ first-team squad this season, with deputies Heung-Min Son and Gareth Bale currently unavailable.
Tottenham have been linked with moves for Bournemouth’s Josh King, Napoli’s Arkadiusz Milik and Torino’s Andrea Belotti, but Mourinho is confident the club will secure a natural back-up striker to Kane before Monday’s 11pm deadline.
The Portuguese said:
“I am optimistic, but more than that the feeling that I like is that we are trying everything to do it.
“You succeed or you don’t succeed. It’s like a football match: you win or you don’t win but you give everything and try everything. The transfer market is the same.
“I like the feeling that my club is trying to do everything for us and for the team, that’s the most important thing for me.
“If we succeed then great – I believe so – but if we don’t then that’s football.”
