AVB concedes that a striker signing is vital

by Matthew Harris on August 6, 2012

Some Spurs fans are becoming increasingly concerned at the lack of centre forwards at the club as the squad prepares for the new season. The 2012-13 campaign is less than two weeks away but at present, Jermain Defoe is the only recognised striker at the club while Harry Kane has filled in at times during pre-season.

Last year, Peter Crouch, Roman Pavlyuchenko and Louis Saha have all left White Hart Lane while Tottenham’s attempts to agree terms with Emmanuel Adebayor on a permanent transfer have so far proved fruitless.

With just 12 days to go before the big kick off however, head coach Andre Villas-Boas is aware of the need to strengthen the strike force.

“We are hopefully moving in the market in the next couple of days or weeks,” AVB said.

“We are trying to deal with the market. Lots of teams are having difficulty, there’s not a lot of money around and teams try to hold onto their assets as best they can.

“We’re just trying to make the best decisions possible before the start of the league – hopefully trying to solve the issue with one more striker before the Newcastle game.”

Many names have been linked with the club and those will undoubtedly continue but can Tottenham get their man before time runs out?
