Tottenham Hotspur: Club do not need to sign another out-and-out striker

Tottenham Hotspur: Club do not need to sign another out-and-out striker - Tottenham

Mauricio Pochettino appears to still be unsure what Spurs’ striker situation will be at the end of the summer transfer window (Sky Sports).

Harry Kane looks to be the only recognised out-and-out forward at the club due to departures which have left the north London team without a supplementary option.

Tottenham released Fernando Llorente after his contract expired at the end of the season, although it is now being rumoured that he has been offered a new one-year deal.

And the side’s other striker, Vincent Janssen, was recently sold for £6million to Mexican outfit Monterrey after a disappointing spell which saw him bag just six goals in 42 appearances.

But despite a lack of options when it comes to strikers in the Spurs set-up, Pochettino has said any dealings which may or may not be done are not down to him.

If the Lilywhites do not find a more established back-up to Harry Kane before the deadline day for English clubs on Thursday, August 8 then an option Pochettino admits he will have to explore is bringing through 17-year-old Troy Parrott from the U18’s.

The Irishman scored 15 goals in 12 U18 Premier League appearances for the youth side last season.

But while it may seem as if Pochettino is lacking a second choice centre forward to kick Spurs on next season, they do already have two players who have performed in that role for him.

Heung-min Son has scored 25 goals in 47 appearances as the man through the middle, while Lucas Moura has also proven himself pretty capable, netting seven times in 15 games.

Add to that the possibility of Llorente signing a new deal and playmakers Giovani Lo Celso and Paulo Dybala potentially joining the set-up, the men from north London will have more than enough firepower to compete on all fronts again this season, whatever happens in the final two weeks of the window.
