Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed that the club will be making more additions before the end of the ongoing summer transfer window.

The north London club have had a difficult start to their Premier League season, following a 1-0 loss to Manchester United on the opening day of the season, they threw away a 2-0 lead to share the points with Stoke City in their first home game, which sees them with just 1 point from two games.

Spurs are facing a shortage of forward players and the manager is reluctant to depend on Harry Kane, who was last season's top scorer with 31 goals in all competitions, to shoulder the goal scoring burden yet again.

Roberto Soldado has left the club and the Argentine manager has made it clear that Emmanuel Adebayor is not part of his plans for this season, that has left the manager with just one recognised striker in the squad.

The White Hart Lane outfit have brought in Clinton N'Jie from French club Lyon, and the Cameroon international can operate in any of the forward positions, but Pochettino has indicated that the club needs to sign another centre-forward, with the Independent reporting that a £15m ($23m) bid for West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino is in the pipeline.

The former Southampton manager has confirmed that the club will add more players this window, but insisted that it was not the reason for their disappointing performance in the latter stages of the game that saw Stoke mount a late comeback to snatch a point.

"N'Jie can play in different positions. Centrally? He can play there but I think we need another centre forward," Pochettino said, as quoted by the Independent.

"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," he added.

"This is the beginning of the season. It is true we have taken only one point from two games but the performance against Manchester United was good, today was very good in the first 70 minutes, but we need to be more consistent over 90 minutes," the Argentine explained.
