“That doesn’t bother me” – Graham Roberts drops big Spurs transfer verdict ahead of deadline day

Graham Roberts doesn’t believe that Tottenham need to bring in another striker now Harry Kane has committed his future to the club.

After months of uncertainty and an ongoing saga with Manchester City, the 28-year-old confirmed that he’ll be staying at Spurs for least this summer after Pep Guardiola’s men failed to meet Daniel Levy’s asking-price.

But following Carlos Vinicius’ return to Benfica, Tottenham are back to square one, with Kane their only senior striker, although Dane Scarlett should play his part in the UEFA Conference League.

Spurs had been heavily linked with Danny Ings and then Fiorentina’s Dusan Vlahovic but are on the verge of heading into another campaign with the England captain as their only option at the top end of the pitch.

Heung Min Son has already shown his ability to play through the middle this season, Lucas Moura can play up front and Dele Alli has previously played a false nine role, which all options for Nuno Espirito Santo should Kane get injured.

When asked whether he’s confident heading into the season with just one striker, Roberts exclusively told Football FanCast:

“Yeah, I am, that doesn’t bother me. If you’re going to wait for someone like Vlahovic, why do you want to rush into it? If he wants to stay there for another year, then let him stay there.”
