Tottenham Hotspur were dealt with a huge blow when their talisman Harry Kane suffered an untimely injury in their 1-0 loss to Manchester United. They later confirmed that the 2018 World Cup golden boot winner will be out until March.

Harry Kane is going to miss close to 10 key matches for the Lily Whites and his absence was greatly felt when Spurs were knocked out by Chelsea in the Carabao Cup.

Kane injury leaves Tottenham with only two fit strikers - Son Heung-min and Fernando Llorente. The former has returned after South Korea were shockingly eliminated in the quarter-finals of AFC Asia Cup by Qatar.

In Kane and Son's absence, Fernando Llorente spurred his golden opportunity to impress Mauricio Pochettino as he netted an own goal against Fulham and failed to make an impact on the game.

Son Heung-min is available for selection, but he is a little fatigued after his involvement in the Asia Cup. This calls for the last minute rush for Tottenham Hotspur to sign a striker who could offer proper back-up to the South Korean as they wait for Harry Kane to recover from his lengthy layoff.

Here is a look at five strikers that Spurs could sign as a cover-up for their injured striker.

#5 Cenk Tosun

Tosun has found game time hard to come by at Everton since he joined the Merseyside club in 2018 from Besiktas. After struggling to adapt to the English Premier League, the Turkish International finally looked settled as he has managed to score seven goals in 30 appearances for the Toffees.

His Champions League experience at Besiktas could prove to be vital for Spurs who are up against high-flying Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League round of 16.


Despite netting only two Premier League goals for Everton this season, the Turkish striker could be a decent addition to Spurs squad and could score more goals to his game with plenty of creative players at Tottenham.

Pricing him away from Everton could prove to be difficult as the Toffees have already rejected a loan approach from Crystal Palace for the striker but it is a gamble worth taking for Spurs who are in dire need for a new striker.
