Spurs skipper Hugo Lloris has asserted that Tottenham are fully committed to challenging in the Premier League at the top level, irrespective of transfer business over the next month.

Over the last few days, while on tour in America, both players and staff alike in the Spurs camp have been bombarded with questions concerning Tottenham’s lack of signings during the Summer transfer window.

In response, Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino stated that he was ‘calm’ and not about to rush into any deals despite Tottenham’s top 4 rivals having already splashed out large amounts on reinforcements.

Although Spurs have over £50 million in the bank following the sale of Kyle Walker, Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris has revealed that, much like his team-mates, he feels it is more important to keep the current team together, than to bring new players in. According to SkySports, Lloris said:

“After the last two season’s we’ve built such a confidence in the squad. We’ll try to keep the same way, with the same attitude and the same energy and try to be as competitive as possible.”

“Honestly I don’t care about that (transfers). It belongs to the chairman and the manager. I’m just a player and I’m committed to my team.”

“We trust each other. We’re used to working together for a while now and we will be ready to be competitive again this season.”

Tottenham are the only Premier League side not to make a single signing so far this Summer, however SkySources suggest Spurs are in the market for an attacking midfielder and a right-back.
