Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino said it was "obvious" the Premier League club needed to add to their striking options but refused to say whether they would make another bid for West Bromwich Albion forward Saido Berahino.

West Brom rejected an offer for Berahino from Spurs on 18 August and their chairman Jeremy Peace said the club had "no interest" in selling the England under-21 striker. Pochettino told a news conference on Thursday (August 20) he was not going to speak about the club's private business.

"I think it is obvious that we need to some player, we the (a) different target (but) this is private," the Argentinian said.

"We know, we identify our target, we are working very hard, the chairman is working hard for (to) bringing (a) to the new player in this position but yes, I am happy with my squad."

Harry Kane, who netted 31 goals in all competitions last season, is Tottenham's preferred choice in attack as Emmanuel Adebayor has fallen out of favour while Roberto Soldado was sold to Spanish side Villarreal.

Attacking midfielders Christian Eriksen of Denmark and Argentine Erik Lamela have been linked in media reports with a move to Juventus but Pochettino played down speculation the duo would leave.

"Yes, Christian is happy here, he has a contract but today maybe change this situation and we keep the best players for the present and for the future to be a very good squad for (to) try to in the next few years, try to fight for the top four and try to win the Premier League one day," Pochettino said.

"All the people spoke and will speak that we need offensive player but we need to be more consistent because we conceded a lot of goals last season and it was not our problem to score - the problem is that we conceded a lot of goals that we need to improve for the season," he added.

Spurs have just one point from their opening two matches and travel to face Leicester City on 22 August who have six points from two games.
