Despite the recent arrival of Clinton N'Jie at Tottenham, Mauricio Pochettino remains keen to add another attacker to his ranks.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that he is keen to add another centre forward to his squad after his side were stunned by a late Stoke City comeback at White Hart Lane on Saturday.

Two goals in the closing 12 minutes of the game from Stoke City denied the Argentine his first win of the season as the Lilywhites were forced to share the points with Mark Huges' Potters.

The hosts had established a commanding lead courtesy of goals from Eric Dier and Nacer Chadli. However, a Marko Arnautovic penalty and a Mame Biram Diouf header secured a share of the spoils for the visitors.

However, when asked if the Lilywhites would be making an further attacking additions, he responded, "I think so, yes."
