‘We want to do something that is right’ – Mourinho provides Tottenham transfer update

Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has indicated that his club will not be making any reckless signings this month.

Spurs are believed to be in the market for a striker given that Harry Kane is set to be out of action for the next three months due to a serious hamstring injury.

Mourinho has been quizzed on adding to his Tottenham squad before the end of the January transfer window, with the Lilywhites boss remaining coy.

“To do something, you have to do something that is good for our future too, not just good for tomorrow,” Mourinho said, according to Sky Sports.

“Something that is good for the future too and of course the club is very aware of it and the club is very committed of course but we want to do something that is right by every point of view.

“So I don’t speak about other players from other clubs, about things that can happen or not happen because that’s not me and that’s not the way Tottenham operate too.

“But we are trying to see if any good opportunities arise.”

Tottenham have had to play without a recognised striker during their previous three games.

Due to this reason, Spurs fans will be hoping that their beloved team delve into the transfer market and bring in a new striker.

Tottenham attacking duo Lucas Moura and Son Heung-Min are both able to operate as strikers but it is not ideal to deploy them in that role as it is not their natural position.

Spurs also need to start getting positive results soon if they want to restore some dignity to their season and attain a top four finish.

Tottenham have been struggling for form this season and are currently six points adrift of fourth place Chelsea after a 2-1 victory over Norwich on Wednesday night.

It is quite evident that Spurs will need to make a few new signings if they want to compete against the very best in the league.

Their current squad is simply not capable of keeping up to the standard of first place Liverpool and even second place Manchester City.

Tottenham have added exciting Portuguese midfielder Gedson Fernandes to their squad this month.
