Cape Town - Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho insists the club will not be
signing anyone on a whim during the current transfer window.
Spurs are desperate for a replacement for Harry Kane, who
could miss the rest of the season with a hamstring injury, having been left
without a recognised striker on their books.
They have been linked with plenty of names so far this
month, with Paris Saint-Germain's Edinson Cavani the latest, but any target has
to meet certain criteria.
Mourinho has made it clear that Tottenham's world will not
end at the end of this season and says new signings must be part of the club’s
"To do something, you have to do something that is good
for our future too, not just good for tomorrow," said Mourinho ahead of
Wednesday's home clash with Norwich.
"Something that is good for the future too and of
course the club is very aware of it and the club is very committed of course
but we want to do something that is right by every point of view."
However, Mourinho has said that Spurs are still looking and
if a good opportunity arises then they will look to take it.
Mourinho is also refusing to speak about players from other
clubs, but loan deals are also an option for Spurs and all avenues are being
explored. But there will be no panic buys.
Tottenham have yet to score in the Premier League since
Kane's injury and while the wait for a new arrival goes on, the hard yards are
being put in on the training ground to develop a new style.
While Kane will not be back any time soon, Spurs will be
boosted by the return of Tanguy Ndombele, who has been missing since New Year's
Day with a hip injury.
Mourinho has already voiced plenty of frustration at the
club record buys injury problems and the Portuguese have insisted that the
determination to become a top player must come from Ndombele.
