Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane showed no signs of a lack of sharpness in front of goal on the opening weekend against Aston Villa.
The Spurs goal scorer slammed home two solid finishes to earn his side a 3-1 win over the newly-promoted team, despite going 1-0 down early on.
However, Pochettino only has the one senior out-and-out striker to choose from this season, after Fernando Llorente was released and Vincent Janssen was sold.
Heung Min Son and Lucas Moura can both cover the striker position, Lamela has played there in the past, and Troy Parrott is an academy option.
However, as a free agent, Llorente could yet be brought back into the fold for another year, with Spurs offering him a contract with reduced terms earlier this summer (Standard).
A new report from Corriere dello Sport suggests that Llorente is looking for a three-year contract on £70,000 per week from his new club though, something Spurs are unlikely to offer.
