Harry Kane remains Spurs’ only recognised first-team striker from last season, with Pochettino having opted to play Heung Min Son or Lucas Moura in advanced positions during Kane’s injury absences.
But Pochettino is waiting to find out if chairman Daniel Levy will complete any more signings before turning to 17-year-old forward Troy Parrott, who started in Spurs’ pre-season win over Juventus on Sunday.
“He’s still so young but we will see what happens at the end of the transfer market,” said Pochettino.
“If we still have the squad we have today of course he’s going to have the chance to be part of the first team.”
Pochetitno reiterated he is not in control of signings at Tottenham, who have broken their transfer record to bring in £53.8m midfielder Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon this summer.
“Always the club signs players, not Mauricio,” said Pochettino.
