Pochettino comments on transfer business so far, hints at future

WH Lane

In the latest Tottenham Hotspur transfer news and rumours, Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino comments on his signings to date and comments on future plans.

After a summer of upheaval last year, Tottenham Hotspur have spent rather modestly in the current transfer window with just £7.5 million spent on the combined purchases of Ben Davies, Michel Vorm and Eric Dier.

All of which have been offset by the combined sales of Jake Livermore to Hull City and Iago Falque to Genoa for £8 million and £4 million, respectively.

During a period of market activity where clubs like Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea are either spending lavishly or adopting an aggressive recruitment policy, Mauricio Pochettino has claimed that he is content with the business Spurs have completed thus far as it has brought balance to the squad.

He said: "Ben Davies, Michael Vorm and Eric Dier give balance to the squad. The profile they have is a very good profile for us.

"The most important thing is to get success altogether as a team. This is our principal idea, our principal thought. We are ambitious and we put a lot of pressure on the players.

"They believe in us and I believe in them. Tottenham is a big club and why can we not compete for the top four when we arrive at the end of the season? And, one day, to win the league, why not?"

In order to achieve that top four dream, the club still need to return to the market according to Stan Collymore, who identified the perfect candidate to help them do so - Wilfried Bony.

Perhaps in a hint that there are more deals that could be done in the near future, Pochettino concluded by saying: "I am very happy with the squad but you always want to improve."

Tottenham Hotspur have also been linked with moves for Mateo Musacchio, Morgan Schneiderlin and Memphis Depay.
