Danny Mills: Why Tottenham won’t sign a striker in January
Danny Mills believes Mauricio Pochettino's squad is already strong enough to challenge for Premier League title
Danny Mills says Tottenham Hotspur don’t need to sign a new striker to challenge for the Premier League title this season.
The north London side are six points behind Premier League leaders Arsenal ahead of their clash against Leicester City at White Hart Lane on Wednesday night.
If they want a top quality striker from the continent Spurs will have to pay an absolute fortune
Mauricio Pochettino has been urged to sign a striker in the January transfer window to have back-up in his squad in the event of talisman Harry Kane picking up an injury.
However, former Manchester City defender Mills doesn’t feel that there is a striker available that would significantly improve Pochettino’s Tottenham squad.
“Everyone says Spurs need another striker to be a genuine title threat but I’m not so sure,” Mills told Sportslobster.
“They’re six points off top-spot so they are already a threat… Of course another striker would improve the squad but I can’t see that there’s anyone of the required quality worth taking a chance on.
“Berahino is the likely candidate but he wouldn’t start regularly and doesn’t guarantee goals.
“If they want a top quality striker from the continent Spurs will have to pay an absolute fortune and I’m not sure Daniel Levy is prepared to do that.”
Kane has scored 11 goals in 20 Premier League games for Tottenham so far this season after an initial slow start to the 2015/16 campaign.
The England striker scored a last-gasp equaliser from the penalty spot to hold Leicester to a 2-2 draw in their FA Cup third-round clash at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon.
