Jamie Redknapp urges Tottenham to sign a striker


Former Tottenham midfielder Jamie Redknapp insists his former side need to secure the service of a proven striker if they're eager to cement a top-four spot in the Premier League.

Tottenham have relied so much on Harry Kane this season and the 21-year-old has been in good form for most part of the season for the North London side.

And on occasions, Kane hasn’t been able to prevent Pochettino's side from a defeat like their most recent clash against Crystal Palace which they lost 2-1 at Selhurst Park, despite Kane scoring the opener.

However, Redknapp reckons Tottenham Hotspur need to sign a top goal scorer in this January transfer window if they are to have any chance of getting a Champions League spot.

“I still feel they need another forward or two,” Redknapp told Sky Sport. “If you compare them to the other sides competing for the top four that’s where they are short in that area.

“I really fancied Tottenham to go there and win, they had the capability, the ammunition, all the players in great form….But they looked like they are still one or two short.”

The Sky Sports pundit also gave his take on Alan Pardew's team after they came from a goal down to secure a win and said it was a huge result for the Eagles.

“To go 1-0 down, without (Mile) Jedinak and (Yannick) Bolasie, and win that game is a huge result for that club and the manager,” he added.

“You could see when he was walking off that he was delighted with that, there’s a bit of desire and appetite now and they have their tails up.

“It’s going to be a tough place to play now because you can tell Alan Pardew has got the confidence up straight away.”
