HARRY KANE handed Tottenham a major worry when he went down with a nasty hamstring injury earlier this month.
The England star, 26, was initially told he may miss this summer’s European Championships.
But after a successful operation, Kane may be back as early as April.
Despite that, Spurs boss Jose Mourinho will need to replace Kane this month – with 17-year-old Troy Parrott the only other out-and-out striker in the squad.
With that in mind, we’ve taken a look at five options for Tottenham…
THE Spanish striker left Tottenham as a free agent last July – but could now be on the way back.
Llorente, 34, is currently at Napoli – where’s he’s scored four times in 23 games this season.
With the likes of Lucas Moura being trialled through the middle, Mourinho could be tempted to ask Llorente to come back to save them.
CERTAINLY a more future-thinking buy, Real Madrid flop Jovic is being linked with Spurs in a £55m deal.
The Serbian, 22, has scored just once in 19 appearances since joining Los Blancos last summer and is looking for a new home.
Jovic sits behind in-form Karim Benzema in the pecking order and could be tempted to head to London for a fresh start.
NO, not that Willian…
Spurs are said to be interested in Real Sociedad forward Willian Jose, but the La Liga club are demanding £60m – the Brazilian’s release clause fee.
That fee is sure to put the club off, with Daniel Levy said to be reluctant to bring in any more big-money signings after the purchase of record-signing Tanguy Ndombele (£65m) last summer.
TOTTENHAM are said to be on the brink of a surprise move for Monaco striker – and former Leicester flop – Slimani.
Spurs are working through possible targets, and the 31-year-old’s name has cropped up as the French market is scouted.
Slimani joined the Foxes for a then club-record £29m back in 2016, and scored only 13 goals in 46 games, but Tottenahm now need all the help they can get.
MORE SPURS STORIES
MOURINHO is famously a fan of the former Liverpool and Aston Villa man, now at Crystal Palace.
The Special One once said: “Benteke is a special player with special qualities.” Special.
A proven Premier League goalscorer in his prime, Mourinho could be tempted to bring in the out-and-out striker, at least until the end of the season to solve the Kane injury conundrum.
