Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has hinted that Harry Kane's European form could be enough to prevent the club acting in the final four days of the summer transfer window.
Kane netted for the second Europa League game in succession against AEL Limassol and also missed a penalty during an eye-catching display as Spurs eased into the group phase.
Attacking trio Kane, Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado have all found the net already this season, in stark contrast to the problems endured by Tottenham's strikers during the last campaign where they all suffered poor runs of form.
But their runs of goals has handed Pochettino a selection dilemma ahead of the Premier League visit of Liverpool this weekend and the Tottenham boss has suggested Kane's form in particular could prevent further additions.
"Which people? [say I need more strikers] The most important people are the chairman, Franco, me," he said. "We have a lot of players of unbelievable quality. We need to give balance to the team.
"It is possible always we find to give balance to the team and add some players but not too much until he end of the transfer window. I always believe in Harry."
The 21 year old ended last season in impressive form, scoring three times in the club's last six matches before a decent pre-season prevented him being sent out on a fifth loan spell of his White Hart Lane career.
The England youth international reacted from a missed penalty to lead Tottenham into the Europa League group stage on Thursday and Pochettino was impressed by his determination.
"That's football it is possible to miss the penalty but it is not important," he added. "The important thing is he follow the ball to score and did not let it affect his performance.
"It was good. He always showed the character. He is very strong minded and he is a very good player too."
