Jose Mourinho has confirmed Tottenham want to sign a new a striker in the January transfer window aftter his side’s goalless draw at Watford on Saturday.

Spurs have now gone four Premier League games without a victory and 195 minutes without a goal since Harry Kane’s hamstring injury sidelined their talisman out for at least till April.

Lucas Moura missed a one-on-one chance in the first half before Dele Alli and Heung-min Son missed other opportunities and Erik Lamela’s last-gasp effort was cleared on the line with just millimetres to spare.

When asked about bringing in a new striker Spurs boss said:

“​If it’s possible yes, if it’s not possible no. We all know, we all want the best for the team, the best for the club. That is obvious.

“But we have to do things when it is possible to do, it is the right thing to do.

“This is not the last match of Tottenham’s history. Next Wednesday we have another one, next season we have many more.

“We have to be calm, be loyal to these boys, respecting everything they are trying to do. If it happens it happens, if it doesn’t happen it doesn’t happen.

“But good feelings, not a good result but good feelings with the boys. But we have to do things when it is possible to do, it is the right thing to do.”
