£32 million will get 48-goal hitmasn signed as Mourinho announces he is confident a new striker is heading to Tottenham
Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho is confident he will sign a striker in the transfer window, with Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik.
It is easy to say that Tottenham have the best striker in the game in the shape of Harry Kane, and that the club only need to go out and try to sign a forward that is happy to play second fiddle to the England hitman.
Kane is the only specialist striker in Tottenham’s first-team squad and head coach Jose Mourinho says the club is “working very hard” to sign competition for the England captain, with Milik on the agenda.
Milik is heavily tipped to leave Napoli this transfer window if they receive an offer of £32 million for the hitman, who has netted an impressive 48 goals in just 112 appearances for the Italian side.
And now fans have been given a massive boost that a striker will be signed by the club after Mourinho admitted that he is confident that a new arrival will be signed by the board in the coming weeks.
“I want, I need a striker, but I want to make it very, very clear that the club knows that I need a striker and they also want a striker,” Mourinho said on Sky Sports.
“Are we going to get one? I believe so, I honestly believe so. The team needs it for the balance of the squad.”
Spurs do need to add another striker to the side and although Mourinho has not mentioned who the signing will be, many media outlets are expecting Milik to be that signing.
However, Mourinho will be hoping that a creative midfielder and a top-class central defender are signed too, because the special one is still missing that in his squad heading into the new seasons.
