Sky Sports say Mauricio Pochettino says he will look for “quality” signings in the final days of the January transfer window.

It’s well known that we have not signed a player in the winter window since Dele Alli back in 2015, when the midfielder was immediately loaned back to MK Dons to finish that season.

It adds that Pochettino recently said that Tottenham would not recruit in January, but after Saturdays 1-1 draw with League Two Newport in the FA Cup he admitted they do have some options before the transfer deadline at 11pm onWednesday night.

Poch said: “Of course we have some options,. We are going in the last few days to see if we can add players that add good quality.If not then it won’t happen. But it’s about in the next few days to see if we have some possibilities with some players.”

We are in talks to sign Lucas Moura from Paris-Saint Germain on a permanent basis and Sky Sports News say it is understood the two parties are some way from agreeing a deal, with the French champions demanding a fee in the region of £23m for the winger.

Pochettino was asked about Moura, and the Argentine tactician replied: “There’s a lot of rumours about different players and I never talk about rumours.But we’ll see what happens in the last few days.”

The article adds that it was thought that Spurs’ prime target in the January transfer window had been another Brazilian winger Malcom but his club Bordeaux have so far refused to budge on their £45m valuation of the 20-year-old.

The youngster signed a new contract last summer that runs until 2021, while Moura’s deal at PSG expires in 18 months’ time.
