Pochettino Wants New Tottenham Striker

share on:

Tottenham manager, Mauricio Pochettino has revealed he is looking to sign a natural striker to partner Harry Kane.

Kane has progressed since his slow start to the season, scoring nine in his last seven matches in all competitions.

Pochettino brought in Son and N’jie during the window, but it seems he is still looking for a more central forward.

“We have offensive players who can play like Harry,” Pochettino said.

“There is Sonny or [Nacer] Chadli or Clinton – they can play like a striker. But I recognise they are not specific strikers, so maybe we work to try to find such a player we can add in the next transfer window or in the summer. We are trying to follow players now but it is very difficult.

“What is most important is that we do not rock the balance of the team. It is important we find someone who is very specific.

“For me, always, you want to find a striker that scores a lot of goals and who has good physical condition, good characteristics, who can press, work hard and is a nice guy, too.”

Spurs came close to securing the signing of Saido Berahino in the summer, a deal breaking down on transfer deadline day due to strained relations between the two clubs.

And, ahead of Tottenham’s upcoming clash against West Brom on Saturday, Pochettino believes the 22-year-old could find extra motivation to produce a strong performance.

“You never know because it is impossible to be in that player’s mind,” he said.

“In football, you need to have big motivation in every game. We are very focused on our team and we know the way we want to play.

“West Brom have a lot of good players. You can’t be more worried about some players because of rumours or what happened in the summer.”
