According to former Scotland midfielder Graeme Souness, the risk of Spurs getting eliminated of the Last-16 in the Champions League is bigger now.
Tottenham Hotspur attacker Harry Kane was injured in the 1-0 defeat against Manchester United.
He will be out of the action until at least early March, which means he will miss both legs of the Last-16 fixture against Borussia Dortmund.
And for former Scottish footballer Graeme Souness, this injury is dangerous for the Spurs.
“Without Harry, they risk not qualifying for the Champions League. It might force them to do something they thought they could do in the summer and who’s available at this time of year?” he told Sky Sports.
“All of a sudden, you’re buying under pressure. Clubs will know that Tottenham are under the cosh so the premiums will go up again. It’s not a good place to be when you’re trying to buy players under pressure.”
“They definitely need to get someone in, I would say in this window for a bit of back-up if he’s out for a few weeks,” he added.
“You’ve got Llorente who is a great pro and he’ll do a job for you but he’s not a prolific goalscorer. Maybe it’s time that Daniel [Levy] does something to help the squad out.”
