The previous two summer transfer windows have been very busy for Daniel Levy and his Tottenham team. Spurs fans however would argue that the money has been spent in entirely the wrong way, as Tottenham have failed to produce a top-class striker.
Roberto Soldado, who signed for Tottenham in the summer of 2013, has scored very few goals in the Premier League aside from the penalty spot.
Former manager Andre Villas-Boas placed a lot of faith in Soldado and played him weekly, however the expensive striker was unable to produce what Spurs so dearly need; goals.
Emmanuel Adebayor has also failed to impress in the recent months after such a brilliant start under Tim Sherwood, and he was even left out of the squad that lost to Manchester City.
In his whole career Adebayor has drifted in and out of form, but with the lack of class that Tottenham have in attack it is vital that he scores more goals, or else Spurs will find themselves dropping even lower in the Premier League table.
- Erik Lamela has begun the biggest season of his career
- Mauricio Pochettino faces huge challenge at Tottenham
Harry Kane, a striker that Tottenham produced through their academy, is the only player who really looks like a figure who will get goals, evidenced by his first senior hat-trick against Asteras Tripolis in the Europa League.
He seems a fan favourite, but he has rarely started in Spurs' Premier League matches, which leaves Tottenham fans asking questions of their manager Mauricio Pochettino as to why their top scoring striker isn't getting the chance from the off.
Blame on Levy?
The finger is then pointed at Spurs chairman Daniel Levy, who has somewhat failed to produce a top quality striker, and instead has 'bulk bought' midfielders.
It is vital for Tottenham that they bring in a goalscorer or work Adebayor and Soldado into the talented Spurs team, otherwise the already sinking side may in fact find themselves gone without a trace.
