Tottenham may buy older striker to not block Troy Parrott’s first-team path
Spurs didn’t sign any strikers at the start of the season and that hurt us later on. Harry Kane picked up a hamstring injury while Son Heung-min broke his hand.
That only left Troy Parrott as the recognised striker but Jose Mourinho hasn’t played the 18-year-old much.
A fan asked Gold if we would sign an older or a younger striker and the Spurs correspondent claimed that the club still believes in Parrott (h/t Football.london):
“Spurs are wary of blocking the path in front of Troy Parrott but clearly Mourinho needs more experience and in the form of a natural striker.”
Gold added that young strikers are expensive and Spurs won’t have a lot of funds in the summer (h/t Football.london).
However, the Spurs correspondent added one star that we could target (h/t Football.london):
“Olivier Giroud fits the bill perfectly with experience of the Premier League and he showed against Spurs at Stamford Bridge exactly what he brings to the table.”
The Harry Kane problem
Having someone like Kane in the team is a bit of an issue when it comes to strengthening the side.
Gold touched upon that fact with other players not keen on becoming second-fiddle to one of the best in the world (h/t Football.london).
Kane has had his injury troubles over the years and we need decent cover for him. However, we sold Vincent Janssen at the start of the season and allowed Fernando Llorente to leave too.
Tottenham still need some firepower to cover for Kane when he gets injured, and it will be interesting to see our plans in the next transfer window.

Parrott should be handed more chances to impress but we also need someone who can step into Kane’s shoes should the Englishman pick up an injury.
