It has been well reported that Tottenham Hotspur failed to sign a single new player in the summer, becoming the first Premier League ever to do such a thing.
Spurs have also been inactive on the purchasing side of the winter window, with their only dealing coming in the form of a Mousa Dembele sale to China.
Pochettino and Levy instead opted for a settled squad, a decision that was working wonders for Tottenham until recently.
Despite the success on the pitch, injuries have ravaged the squad from day one, and are now finally catching up with Spurs’ form and ability to win.
Against Fulham last weekend, Tottenham were without their four top goal scorers, something that has left many begging for transfer activity.
Pochettino now has the likes of Lucas Moura, Victor Wanyama, Eric Dier, and Moussa Sissoko back from injury, as well as Heung Min Son back from the Asia Cup, but he still insists they are working on a few transfer options.
Poch said (Football London): “I think we are going to explain after 100 times the same. I always say that I am more than open to improve and to add players to the squad. That is so clear. You can find on the on the internet, from all of my press conferences, I always say the same. I am more than open. Different thing is if we can find the right player who is going to help us to improve the team, the squad. But never was closed, always open.
“Always, we’ll see. Still six days. We are working. A few options. We’ll see if we are capable of delivering, but in the same way of course we have the squad. Now we have maybe one space because Mousa Dembele has gone. But we need to be careful because for the Champions League I think we are not going to….if it’s a player that is not an English player we don’t have the space, because it was Juan Foyth and that is so important to be careful about the decision. But we are always hoping to try to add quality and try to improve the squad.”
