Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has admitted that he is still looking for another striker to sign before the deadline of the summer transfer window.
On the morning before kick-off against Stoke- Spurs’ first home game of the season- the North London club announced the capture of former Lyon star Clinton N’Jie, their fourth signing of the summer alongside Kevin Wimmer, Kieran Trippier and Toby Alderweireld.
You may think that this could be the last of Tottenham’s business in this window, with a forward now on-board, something Pochettino has been striving to do throughout the summer.
However, the Argentine boss has said that Spurs are still looking to sign another striker before the summer is out.
Pochettino also stated that Kane lacked fitness for the game against Stoke, leading to his substitution part way through the 2-2 draw with The Potters, and the Lilywhites now seem to lack options up top with Emmanuel Adebayor out of the frame, Roberto Soldado sold to Villarreal and Harry Kane lacking fitness.
Clinton N’Jie may seem like the answer, but Pochettino has said that the Cameroon international is comfortable playing out wide, so may require another striker.
“N’Jie can play in different positions. Centrally? He can play there but I think we need another centre forward,”
“We need to add some more players to the squad but don’t worry, I think today we deserved to win – it wasn’t a problem about the strikers.”
