Kane isn't able to do it on his own, claims Pochettino

Mauricio Pochettino admits Tottenham could do with buying another out-and-out striker in the January transfer window to help Harry Kane.

Spurs failed to land a centre forward in the summer, despite making a series of bids for Saido Berahino, leaving Kane to shoulder the burden almost single-handedly so far.

Kane has played in all of Tottenham's 20 fixtures this season and started every game but two, coming off the bench in Europa League matches against Qarabag and Anderlecht.

Pochettino has previously argued that Son Heung-min, Clinton Njie, Nacer Chadli and even Erik Lamela could step in up front, but all those players are more comfortable playing wide as attacking midfielders.

Kane's excellent form and fitness have made light of Tottenham's vulnerability, but Pochettino admits it is an area the club may look at again.

"We have offensive players who can play like Harry. There is Sonny or Chadli or Clinton, they can play like a striker, but I recognise they are not a specific striker so maybe we work to try to find such a player we can add in the next transfer window to help the team," said Pochettino.

"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, can press, work hard and is a nice guy too."
