Ange Postecoglou is adamant that Tottenham will have difficulty adding a new striker in January to help boost their attacking performance. Instead of shelling out a lot of money in the New Year, the Spurs manager thinks it would be better to work with the players he already has.


Tottenham is the team with the lowest Premier League goal average among the top six: two goals per game. Their recent Premier League losses to Chelsea, Wolves, Aston Villa, and West Ham were a result of their lack of clinicalness in front of goal.


Spurs need another proven goal scorer to put them back in the running for the championship, even though Son Heung-min has done a great job replacing Harry Kane since the summer. Postecoglou, however, is realistic about the overpriced striker transfer market.


Ivan Toney and Victor Osimhen are the two main targets Tottenham is reportedly linked to down the middle. It will be extremely expensive to bring both players in this winter, and it is highly unlikely that their respective clubs will allow them to leave in the middle of the current campaign


Following his team’s most recent 2-1 loss to the Hammers, Postecoglou insisted that there is a great deal of room for improvement in the final third and identified Dejan Kulusevski as a player who needs to score more goals.


When asked if he planned to look to add a new forward in January, Postecoglou acknowledged that it wouldn’t be a simple task. “Well, it is not easy because when you talk about the finished product, you know what that is going to cost in the market and there aren’t that many there,” he stated.


Thus, the goal is to help the younger players here by providing them with knowledge, space, and support so they can keep developing and learning about their options. A portion of it comes from their prior experience in those roles and the new knowledge we give them to improve their performance the next time.”


He continued, “We are still far short in that area.” We still have a lot more room to grow in our front third and score more goals there. As a team, I genuinely believe we have a lot more work ahead of us, aside from a few areas where we still need to improve in our front third work.”
