Pochettino suggests Tottenham have had a better window than Arsenal, explains why

The Tottenham Hotspur boss remains tight-lipped on specific targets but suggests he is happy with the north London side's window so far.

Whether you believe him or not, Mauricio Pochettino remains adamant he is pleased with Tottenham's transfer window so far, according to Sky Sports.

And, to help aid his point, the Argentine has made a comparison with great rivals Arsenal.

Indeed, while Tottenham's need for new players is still glaringly obvious, Pochettino has suggested he is happy with his side's transfer business so far as four players have been signed.

Arsenal, meanwhile, have made no new outfield signings. While the Spurs boss has commented on Chelsea's signing of Pedro, then, he seems to be suggesting he would rather be in the position of having four players in already at such a late stage - even if the White Hart Lane outfit still need a few more.

Pochettino told reporters: "We have time to bring players in. Chelsea sign a striker like Pedro. Arsenal still nothing. I think we are happy because we've brought in four players in this transfer window."

The Gunners can easily argue they have far less of a need for new recruits outfield but, in order for Arsene Wenger's men to progress to the next level, the same accusations have been leveled at them year after year - that they are short of a striker and dominant central midfielder.

Tottenham also need new players in those positions but have strengthened in more than one area, as opposed to Arsenal's sole signing of Petr Cech. That appears to be Pochettino's argument.
