Tottenham’s injury crisis
Tottenham are currently experiencing a Little bit of an injury crisis at the club. People are saying that this is the consequence that they are paying for not signing anyone in the summer and that they need to sign some players now during the January transfer window. But is that really the solution?
It goes further than that because currently there aren’t many available players that would fit right into the first team. Also, the fact that Spurs have spent so much money on their new stadium, means they cannot afford to buy another Janssen type player who was a waste of money. With Harry Kane out until March, the obvious position they need reinforcements in is the striker position. Llorente played on the weekend against Fulham, and you could see that he is lacking confidence. Added to that he scored an own goal which did not help his cause of being the preferred striker. Son can play in that position; however, he is playing the Asia cup and could be out until early February. Rumors are that Andy Carrol has been linked with the club, but Spurs have denied that they are perusing the West Ham striker.
Alli is also injured until March although Spurs have better cover for his position. This still doesn’t mean that having one of their best players injured won’t affect them. The club have 6 players that are either injured or away at the moment, which is quite a lot considering the size of their squad and that they sold Dembele just a week ago. However, panic buying is never the option and Spurs should not succumb to the pressure and just buy someone for the sake of buying it because they need to fill their squad. On the other hand, Spurs need to make sure that they make the top 4 with both Arsenal and Man United slowly coming closer to them. They need either a striker or an attacking midfielder so if the right player becomes available before the end of the transfer window and that is not overpriced, they should buy him.
