Mauricio Pochettino hopes that now the uncertainty over his future at Tottenham Hotspur has been put to bed, it will help to attract some key additions to the squad.
The Spurs boss was quick to insist that he will only be in the market for players who can add value to his existing squad as he continues to build for the future.
With Champions League football on the horizon, there’s no doubt that we will need to bring in some key additions. Most notably a proven striker who can help take the burden off Harry Kane as we look to compete on both a European and domestic level to ensure that this season isn’t a one-off.
We have a fantastic core to our squad in the likes of Hugo Lloris, Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen, Dele Alli, Eric Dier and Harry Kane and it’s exciting to think of who he will bring in to make us even stronger.
Pochettino told reporters: “I think it is important for the players and the potential players that
will come that they don’t hear rumours about whether Pochettino will be here or not,”
“I think that is very important. We are ready to compete in the market and try to add the players that can help us in the future. Not that we need much because we have a good squad already.”
Pochettino insisted he did not ask for any assurances about players coming or going this summer.
“I did not need assurances. I didn’t ask for anything,” Pochettino said.
“In the moment that the president wanted to extend my contract he showed his ambition. The players are very happy here. I want to be involved in the future of the club.”
