Mauricio Pochettino claims Tottenham could make a signing before the Everton game

Spurs are yet to finalise their squad with time running out before the close of the window.

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has admitted that the club could make a signing before Saturday’s game against Everton, but stopped short of speaking on specific targets.

“…in football you never know. We don’t sign today but maybe tomorrow,” said the Argentine, in quotes published by the Ham & High.

Spurs have left it late to strengthen and Pochettino hinted at possibly more than one new arrival, adding: “It is obvious we need one striker more, maybe one player more and we are working hard,” said the Argentine.

“This you know and this is what we need to provide the squad with [to have] the right balance to compete for the whole season. I’m happy because it is close to the end of the window and we need something to happen.

“We have different targets. We have our targets but I cannot manage the rumours and the names that are in the media. I never speak about the rumours, this is one of my rules.”

Spurs fans will be hopeful that their manager's claims come to fruition, in what has turned into a frustrating summer of transfer activity.

Early business saw Toby Alderweireld, Keiran Trippier and Kevin Wimmer strengthen the defence and suggested a more decisive approach from Tottenham this time around.

Clinton N’Jie was added to the ranks two weeks ago, but not in time to feature in any of Spurs' opening three Premier League fixtures.

Pochettino’s men have stuttered in their first few games and a lack of options in attack has no doubt played a part in their struggles.

Recent days have seen the likes of Saido Berahino, Heung Min Son and Victor Wanyama linked with moves to White Hart Lane - by the Daily Mirror, among others - and each of those would add much needed quality to a youthful and inexperienced Spurs side.

It’s set to be a busy few days at Hotspur Way and while targets have clearly been identified and sounded out, fans will be hoping proceedings haven’t been left too late by the notoriously difficult Daniel Levy.
