With Kane ruled out, Spurs face a crisis in the attack with no specialist senior striker available.
Son Heung-Min and Lucas Moura will have to fill in against Liverpool, with Mourinho stating it’s too early to rely on the 17-year-old Troy Parrott.
Spurs were expected to have a quiet transfer window but have now been forced to get involved as Mourinho tries to salvage a flagging season.
Polish striker Krzysztof Piatek has agreed to join Tottenham from AC Milan (h/t Sun). The striker is set to sign a three-and-a-half-year deal with the medical scheduled in the next 48 hours. Piatek has spoken of Kane being his role model and the 24-year old now has the chance to emulate his hero.
