Reports had suggested that Spurs were in the market for two forwards, with Jermain Defoe currently the only recognised frontman on the White Hart Lane books.
However, with his preferred 4-2-3-1 formation, Villas-Boas believes two proven goalscorers and a young prospect gives the squad a perfect balance.
Considering that, the Portuguese tactician is poised to place his faith in 19-year-old Harry Kane, who featured regularly in pre-season.
"Normally there is one that doesn't get enough time that he feels he should be credited with," said Villas-Boas.
"That's not because you don't rotate enough, but because when you play a system with one striker it is very difficult to get the third one to play enough.
"Normally on my teams I like to promote the third one as a young striker who is competing for that place a bit more aggressively."
Villas-Boas revealed on Thursday that talks to sign Adebayor were ongoing.
