Daniel Levy describes the type of player that Mauricio Pochettino wants Tottenham Hotspur to sign

Tottenham Hotspur made a few tweaks to their squad during the summer transfer window.

According a report in the London Evening Standard, Daniel Levy has said that Tottenham Hotspur are prioritising signing players who can perform multiple functions under the advice of Mauricio Pochettino.

Tottenham were reluctant to bring too many players in during the previous transfer window, so as not to disrupt their momentum, but the players that they did sign were all versatile.

Pochettino only wanted players who could play in a number of different positions, and Spurs were able to recruit well.

The likes of Heung-Min Son and Clinton Njie, who were brought in to improve the side's forward ranks, are all able to play in any of the front-four spots in Spurs' favoured 4-2-3-1 formation. 

And, even some of the defensive recruits that were brought in have experience in other positions. Toby Alderweireld has played at full-back and centre-back, while he also has had a stint in defensive midfield. Kieran Trippier also played in right midfield for Burnley for a time. 

It is a policy which appears to have served Spurs well, as they have made clear progress during the 2015/16 campaign so far.

Tottenham are unbeaten since the opening day of the season, and they are currently just two points off the Champions League qualification spots.
