Tottenham Hotspur manager, Mauricio Pochettino, managed to sign four new players in the summer transfer window this year, exactly four more than he signed in 2018.

After a near-18-month drought without any incoming players, Tottenham signed teenage winger, Jack Clarke, from Leeds United. However, the Lilywhites then loaned him back to the Championship side for the season.

Next came new club-record signing, Tanguy Ndombele, who has settled nicely into the Spurs squad, racking up a couple of goals already.

Ryan Sessegnon and Giovani Lo Celso were added on deadline day, with the latter coming in on loan from Real Betis.

However, Sessegnon has yet to make an appearance for Spurs due to a hamstring injury and Lo Celso only managed a few games as a substitute before he picked up an injury on duty for Argentina.

The Daily Star now report that Pochettino is set to have a meeting with Daniel Levy in the next week about the January transfer window, and the Argentine has his eyes on two players.

It is said that he wants to go back in for Paulo Dybala after Spurs had a £64.4m bid accepted in the summer (Sky Sports), and he is also keen on right-back Youcef Atal from Nice.

Spurs Web Opinion:

Two top-class players who would add so much to Spurs. They also come in two positions Tottenham need to strengthen badly. My only worry is that Levy will sell a number of first-team players in January to fund deals, leaving the squad even thinner.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. I saw a report stating players could face a pay cut if we fail to make top four. Will Levy and the board also take a pay cut for their part in not getting us the correct players and leaving the squad thin which is the real cause of these problems at the moment.
