Igbayiola reportedly told the Special One that Osimhen’s chances of first-team football will be limited unless Harry Kane departs the north London outfit.

However, Mouirnho’s recent comments about having limited natural strikers in his squad, the Portuguese gaffer claims he will not sign a striker who is afraid to compete with the club’s topscorer, Kane.

“The point is not me convincing the striker, it’s the striker convincing me,”Talk Sport quoted the Portuguese said.

“And if the striker is afraid to come to Tottenham and the striker is afraid of competition then I don’t want the striker.

“So it’s not for me to convince him, it’s for him to convince me. If he says I don’t want to go because I don’t want to be in a squad where we have Harry Kane and Sonny, (Erik) Lamela, Lucas (Moura), I don’t want to go to that squad then goodbye.

“So a striker to come here… I know that we have the best striker in this country, there is no doubts about it, but the striker that comes here has to come with his own ambitions.

“If he doesn’t have ambitions, he doesn’t belong to us.”

Meanwhile, Bioreports had earlier reported that Jose Mourinho who is the handler of Premier League side Tottenham has angrily slammed his players branding them lazy following their defeat against Everton on Sunday, September 13.

But they have started the campaign on a disappointing note losing against Everton who will have Dominic Calvert-Lewin for scoring the winner in the 55th minute.
