Tottenham Hotspur likely to play rest of the season sans a Harry Kane backup

According to The Athletic (Subscription Required), Tottenham Hotspur are likely to play the rest of the season with no backup for Harry Kane in the centre-forward department. It could be a dangerous oversight from the club and could endanger their chances of a top-four finish in the Premier League this season.

Kane’s struggles in the goalscoring department are well documented, and he has failed to live up to expectations this season. Having won the Golden Boot and the Best Playmaker Award in the previous campaign and was integral to Tottenham’s performances.

Despite his current form, the England captain still has a huge influence is his team’s play, with his contributions even impacting other areas like build-up play, chance creation etc. Spurs looked toothless at times when he was given a rest or subbed off during a match.

Spurs? What’s up?

Supposedly the priority is bringing in a right wing-back this month, with Adama Traore from Wolverhampton Wanderers being on the shortlist. The North London club is confident about signing him to boost their attacking output on the wings.

Tottenham’s budget for the January transfer window is pretty low, meaning without departures, it is difficult to see Antonio Conte secure all his transfer targets. That means there is a likelihood that the team would need to pick and choose their priorities. The frontline might be the one to be ignored as the January window goes ahead in full swing.

That causes real concerns since our depth in the frontline is pretty thin, which was made even worse by the injury to Son Heung-Min. Bryan Gil joined us the previous summer and is yet to hit top form. That puts into perspective the lack of depth in the Spurs frontline.

Steven Bergwijn is being linked with a move to Ajax Amsterdam and the English club have already rejected an €18 million bid for his transfer. The Dutch giants remain interested and are expected to return with an improved offer for his services.

More Tottenham Hotspur

If Bergwijn ends up leaving for a higher fee, we could use it to find a backup for the England international. Even so, we would just be transferring the depth from one position to another.

The lack of depth could prove obtrusive regarding our ambitions for the season. . Time will paint a clear picture on this subject but let’s hope that the management would have a plan to safeguard our interests.
