Chimbonda has regarded Oliver Giroud as a worthy replacement for Harry Kane.

Jose Mourinho, although not saying in exact words, confirmed that Tottenham could miss Harry Kane for an extended period.

Harry Kane was seen limping on the pitch during Spurs’ 1-0 defeat at the Saint Mary’s Stadium at the start of the year. While the club is yet to release an official statement regarding the striker’s injury, Mourinho hinted that he was not expecting a positive news.

Harry Kane’s injury could hit Spurs with a major blow as he acts as the focal point of the team’s attack. Having scored 11 goals in the Premier League so far, Kane’s statistics speak for themselves.

In order to soften the blow, former Spurs star Chimbonda has urged Jose Mourinho to make a move for out of sorts Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud. Giroud has been out of favor under Frank Lampard this campaign and moving across town could benefit both parties.

“I do think they need a striker you know,” Chimbonda told as Express reports.

“Harry Kane is out for five or six weeks – who is going to score the goals? Dare I say it, but I think someone like Olivier Giroud fits the bill. It’s obvious Frank Lampard doesn’t fancy him at Chelsea. I’m sure Giroud wants out, so why not him?

“Yes, he’s a former Arsenal player, but he’s also a World Cup winner and presumably he’s available.”
