Tottenham Hotspur is very much in need of a striker this month.
Tottenham Hotspur’s season may depend on Jose Mourinho signing an attacker.
With Harry Kane out until April, the Spurs are on a well-known paddleless stream if Mourinho is unable to sign a first drawer replacement for the 26-year-old.
So far, the Tottenham boss has tried using Lucas Moura and Son Heung in advance with little effect.
But according to a report from Spain, Mourinho is willing to do everything possible to sign a replacement for Kane.
Defensa Central reported that the Portuguese coach telephoned Real Madrid president Florentino Perez to sign Luka Jovic this month.
The 22-year-old has only started four league games for the Spanish giants after a £ 51 million summer move [Reuters], but the report adds that Perez – who had once hired Mourinho as royal chief – is unwilling to let the young Serbian shooter leave this month.
The report does not reveal whether Northern Londoners want it on loan or on a permanent basis.
Frankly, a lot of garbage was written in January, given the month it is in, and this probably belongs to the category of improbable transfer rumors.
Despite the difficulties in his first season in Madrid, Jovic has a very bright future and it makes little sense for the Tottenham manager to ask Perez to take him to England.
Mourinho will know it’s a long shot and so it’s hard to believe he’s not focusing his energy on more realistic Kane replacements.
