“That’s what I’m told” – Journalist claims Spurs could now ‘accelerate’ the signing of new attacker

By Mehdi Gokal -

Following Richarlison’s injury, Tottenham Hotspur might move more quickly to sign a new attacker, according to transfer reporter Dean Jones, who spoke with GiveMeSport.

After suffering a hamstring injury upon his return from the World Cup, the 25-year-old is expected to miss a number of Spurs matches.

According to BBC Sport, Richarlison sustained an injury during Brazil’s World Cup quarterfinal loss to Croatia and is anticipated to be sidelined for several weeks.

His tournament in Qatar ended in disappointment due to his country’s elimination and a hamstring injury. But on an individual level, he had a fantastic world cup, scoring two of the best goals of the tournament and being the key player in the Brazil squad throughout the tournament scoring three in four games.

Richarlison’s injury has made Tottenham more motivated to make a move in the transfer window, according to Jones, who spoke to GiveMeSport. He said:

“It might accelerate that need for one more attack-minded player. That’s what I’m told we really need to look out for now.”

Richarlison was signed by Spurs for a club-record £60 million during the summer, and Antonio Conte would have preferred to have him available for the second half of the season which resumes on Boxing Day.

Conte would have hoped to see more of the form he displayed at the World Cup over the course of the upcoming month. Unfortunately for the Italian, Richarlison’s absence in January now appears to be inevitable.

This leaves Spurs with Harry Kane, Son Heung-min, and Dejan Kulusevski as the available options upfront. And with a pile of fixtures ahead, any more injuries could really hamper Conte’s season which is perhaps why he wants another attacker signed quickly.
