    I'm totally with you in viewing our business as a whole.
    But we're not Gonna sign Deeney plus Daka! We'll not sign TWO strikers this window. It will be one, or perhaps none.

    It's not the strikers being unwilling to join, it's the club being unwilling to invest good money into a position in which we already have Kane.

    The forward positions are the more difficult to fill than others due to the need for quality and a willingness to pay the money required.

    I agree with that. As for signing a new striker i think I think that I am a better football fan than the rest of you fail to understand its not just about the amount of money we are willing to spend, there are not many players who will be content to accept that they will only be seen as a back up for Kane and only used mostly to have sub chances and the odd game when Kane gets rested ( something i doubt Kane would be happy with anyway).

    He worked hard enough but never seemed to get that second chance

    This season money is the issue
    We tried to signed Morata... he said he wouldn’t sign because of Kane and said that publicly
    That would have been a £50m deal so money wasn’t always the issue... players ambition can be

    I don't think anyone wants to play second fiddle to Kane and unless they are prepared to do that or can play out wide as well they won't come here. We want a proven central striker not a replacement for Son or Lucas.

    A capable player will get opportunities

    The striker name being bandied around today by socalled ITKers and also media in Portugal is Carlos Vinícius from Benfica.

    Dont know much about him, apart from being a Mendes client...

    @Denmark Spur he's tall and had a good goalscoring record last season. Wolves were linked with him earlier this summer which is not surprising considering he's a Mendes player.

    He also didn't play professional football until he was 22, which may speak to an especially strong mental fortitude.

    Benfica may not be a bad source for a striker. Raul Jimenez came from there, wikipedia tells me with not as good a record as this guy, and he's fared well enough. The Portugese league is a reasonable one for striker to prove himself in.

    At least he had the consolation of picking up some silverware after we offloaded him.

    3 goals in 5 appearances so far this season and looks like his footwork still ain’t too shabby...
