Pochettino provides some unconvincing words over transfer activity

Just over one week remains until the transfer window slams shut until January 2019 and Tottenham Hotspur are yet to add to their squad.

Spurs have been linked with the likes of Jack Grealish, Wilfried Zaha and even Gareth Bale over the summer but have failed to secure any signatures.

During Mauricio Pochettino’s press conference in Minneapolis ahead of their clash against AC Milan the 46-year-old boss remained unsure if Spurs will, in fact, make any signings:

“Last season I told you some numbers, but this season we don’t know. I don’t know if we are going to sign or not. We’re working on that.”

“I cannot tell you if we’re going to sign one, zero or two or three or four,” the Argentine added.

The issue surrounding the club’s lack of summer spending has caused much disgruntlement with the Tottenham faithful who believe there is clear room for improvement.

Daniel Levy’s case has not been helped by the current midfield injury crisis which has struck the Tottenham camp.

Erik Lamela, Moussa Sissoko and Victor Wanyama have all suffered injuries whilst on pre-season duty in the USA – a position in which Spurs fans felt needed to be improved anyway.

With just days remaining of the transfer window, will Daniel Levy secure any signatures?


Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Where was the ,I want all transfers done early gone ,that’s what Poch stated months ago, don’t blame translation problems, he has been in English football long enough to state things correct,and if Grealish is the big one spurs fans were going to get ,what about the others ,are they from div 1/2, no hope,there then ,and yes sure do need some new players, because of the six p!where she to leaves leave ,then they will have a weak squad, for all the games ahead, what if Kane gets a long term injury,who is to do his job ,no one,yes spurs will get by, but realistically a Europa league spot is best chance,as most teams are strengthening their squads,but not spurs

  2. Ray is voicing the concern of many Spurs fans, seems we have not been told the truth by Poch or Levy.
    However the financial facts , if anyone is looking, reveal that we are not in a financial position to actually sign anybody without some high priced sales the other way. So far, with a few days to go, no ins or outs, cutting it
    very thin to make any deals. With the exception of Janssen, no deals for any of our deadwood. On the plus side
    looks like we get to keep Toby, barring last minute changes of mind. If Poch mends the bridges and plays Toby we have, once again, a very strong back line. Recent events have indicated that Llorente & No Cluedo can actually contribute. Maybe we are all about to be suprised.
    Truthfully we are behind the top six other clubs in revenue (306m) as opposed to Liverpool with 364m & Chelski (368m) while our wage bill is the smallest at 127m. We truly needed a larger venue in order to increase our revenue stream.This will eventually allow us to compete with the deeper pocketed teams.
    The price we have to pay, it seems, is another season or two before we can realistically spend to improve our squad. Only other way is to sell our stars and rebuild once more.
    Neither scenario gladdens my heart but maybe , just maybe, our team will benefit as there will be no newcomers to fit into the system. We have a very strong squad of players who are very familiar with each other’s strengths and weaknesses. In addition we have seen the improvement in Trippier & Sanchez. Lucas looks the real deal and No Cluedo is showing promise while we have some useful additions coming out of the
    development squad. Things may not be so bleak after all.
