Jose Mourinho wants Tottenham to buy a striker

Jose Mourinho says Tottenham Hotspurs need a striker, and his side are doing everything possible to make it happening before the closing window date.

Tottenham have been linked with a move for AC Milan striker Krzysztof Piatek, while they have been offered the chance to sign Porto forward Ze Luis on loan, but Mourinho refused to be drawn on who the club are targeting.

“Do we need a striker? Yeah, if possible, yes,” Mourinho said.

“But it has to be a positive situation for us, so in this moment we have attacking players that are very good. Son, Lucas, Lamela, Lo Celso, Dele Alli – of course they are very good, but we miss that target man.

“So if it’s possible, we are doing everything possible and it’s not easy but we are trying to add that player to the squad.”
