Kane finished the season as the second most prolific scorer in the division-behind Manchester City's Sergio Aguero-and quickly became a transfer target of many football clubs throughout England. Ultimately, Kane pledged his continuing loyalty to Tottenham Hotspur, and based on the growth he exhibited from the 2013 2014 season to the 2014 2015 campaign, it was tough not to imagine what kind of amazing accomplishments he could record at White Hart Lane this year.

The Disappointment of Harry Kane

Now, though, two matches into the 2015 2016 campaign, it looks like the Spurs may not be able to rely on Harry Kane to push them into the top three or four slots of the Premier League. Indeed, Kane has looked tired and uninspired in the first two weeks of the new Premier League campaign-suggesting that Tottenham might want to bring in some new talent as insurance, before the summer transfer window closes on September 1st.

Kane played all 90 minutes in Tottenham's week one away game at Manchester United, but didn't manage to score as the Spurs lost to the Red Devils thanks to a woeful own goal from defender Kyle Walker.

In week two, during Hotspur's big 2015 2016 season debut at White Hart Lane, Kane was substituted at 64 minutes, with manager Mauricio Pochettino citing tiredness as the reason. Fourteen minutes later, the Spurs gave up a 2-0 lead as their opponents, Stoke City, netted two goals in the space of five minutes. The soccer game ended in a 2-2 draw, leaving Hotspur at 14th place on the Premier League table.

New Transfers

So what's the solution? Does Harry Kane need to spend a bit more time in the Tottenham Hotspur navy training top 2015 2016, building up his endurance once more? Or does Pochettino need to hit the transfer market to find another striker who can fill in for Harry, if Kane continues to disappoint in the coming weeks?

Luckily, Pochettino has brought some new blood aboard this summer. Tottenham's five new transfers were officially welcomed to White Hart Lane before the August 15th Stoke City match. The slate of new talent includes Clinton N'Jie, Toby Alderweireld, Kieran Trippier, Dele Alli, and Kevin Wimmer.

The most promising of these new transfers is Clinton N'Jie, who arrives at Hotspur from Olympique Lyon. The Cameroon forward has been with the French football club since the 2012 2013 season, but he wasn't Tottenham Hotspur Navy Training Top 2015 - 2016a starter until last season, when he scored seven goals in 30 appearances. At 22, N'Jie still has room to grow, and could become a potential substitute for Kane if the Spurs star continues to exhibit "tiredness." With that said, N'Jie wasn't available to play in Saturday's match, as his transfer is still awaiting "international clearance."

Other transfers, such as Alderweireld (a 22-year-old defender who spent a loan season at Southampton last year, from Atletico Madrid), Trippier (a 24-year-old right-back transfer from Burnley), and Alli (a 19-year-old midfielder from the Milton Keynes Dons) did get some play time against Stoke City. The two defenders, at least, did not impress, as both were on the field as Stoke City made their comeback late in the game.

Kevin Wimmer, meanwhile, is the other transfer we didn't see play on Saturday. A 22-year-old center back, Wimmer is transferring in from Germany's FC Koln.

None of these transfers is particularly big for Tottenham. Alderweireld and N'Jie were linked to transfer fees of £11.5 and £12 million, respectively, but neither is really a "big name" in the way that notable transfers for other Premier League soccer clubs (Raheem Sterling to Manchester City, Petr Cech to Arsenal, etc.) have been. Does Pochettino need to invest in a big name striker, winger, or midfielder before the summer transfer window closes, to remove some of the pressure that's on Harry Kane?
