Harry Redknapp has warned that Tottenham Hotspur that they will struggle to sign a striker in the January transfer window.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side have become increasingly reliant on the England striker Harry Kane in recent weeks after the 22-year-old scored five times in his last eight Premier League games.

Kane was voted the PFA young player of the year last season after the Spurs man netted 21 times in 34 Premier League games.

While Redknapp admitted that Spurs are in trouble if Kane picks up an injury, the former Tottenham manager reckons Pochettino could struggle to sign a striker who could add quality to their squad.

“If they get an injury to Harry Kane, it is a problem. But where do you find a striker? That is a bigger problem,” Redknapp told BT Sport.

“Leicester won’t sell Vardy. Everybody would love Vardy at the moment because he is in great form. But it is hard to find a striker in January.”

Kane netted 31 goals in 51 games in all competitions for the north London outfit last season.
