Spurs have spent much of the campaign as Leicester City's nearest challengers for the Premier League title, and look to be in with a strong chance of finishing second in the table.
And ahead of a crucial summer where the Argentinian will be looking to make the additions to his squad that will help the side clear that final hurdle, Pochettino has conceded that looking to provide greater support for Harry Kane is the main priority.
"It's obvious we need to improve our offensive area. We don't need too much," he told The Sun.
"We play with one striker, Harry Kane - and it's true that Nacer Chadli, Heung-Min Son and Clinton Njie can all play this position.
"But we need a proper striker to improve our squad. It's a big challenge for us to fight again for a second season."
Though Kane has been sensational this season, there are still concerns regarding whether the side would be anywhere near as threatening if the 22-year-old pick up an injury. Apart from the England forward and Dele Alli, no player in the Spurs squad has reached double figures in terms of league goals this term.
And with the squad gearing up for a Champions League campaign next year, Pochettino will be extremely wary about putting too much of a burden on Kane's shoulders as it may harm their chances of making an impression in Europe and may scupper their hopes of mounting another title bid.
