Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino admits Spurs need to add players

Tottenham WHL

Spurs are yet to find a genuine alternative to Harry Kane, while central midfield also remains an issue.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed that the club are still in the market for attacking additions, following the signing of Clinton N’Jie, but stressed he is happy with the current squad at his disposal.

"It is obvious we need to add some more (players) in our offensive positions. We identify our targets and the chairman (Daniel Levy) is working very hard to bring new players in this position, but I am happy with my squad," said the Spurs boss, in quotes published by the Irish Independent.

"We have (signed) N'Jie this week, an offensive player and I am happy with my squad."

While their start to season hasn’t been ideal, there has been plenty of positives to take from Spurs’ first two performances.

Pochettino’s men were unlucky to leave Old Trafford pointless and were in complete control for much of the game against a dangerous Stoke side.

The Argentine reflected on Tottenham’s start to the season and feels that there is no need to panic, despite the disappointing results.

"We played the last two games at a good level and I am not worried about the future or our situation. Our situation is good."

The positive signs are plain to see for Spurs but the fact remains – they are still a couple of players short of having a realistic shot at a top four finish.

One possible target who has long been linked with a switch to White Hart Lane is Saido Berahino, and Pochettino kept his cards close to his chest when asked directly about the Baggies striker.

"I am not going to speak about our private business," he said.

The West Brom forward would be a fantastic addition to a Spurs squad still light in attack, and fans will be hoping for more than just the one arrival in the next two weeks.
