Mauricio Pochettino hints at upcoming Tottenham Hotspur transfer activity

Tottenham Hotspur could look to make additions in the January transfer window, according to Mauricio Pochettino.

Mauricio Pochettino has hinted to the Independent that Tottenham Hotspur may be active in the January transfer window.

Spurs currently have a number of players out injured, with Heung-Min Son and Nacer Chadli two of the more important forward players on the treatment table.

It leaves Pochettino short of options in the attacking positions, but the Argentine head coach has suggested that Spurs could enter the market to add more players to their squad in the new year. 

“It is difficult with the Europa League and the Premier League in November and December," he admitted. "In England you always play a lot of games. Son will be out for three weeks maximum and Chadli maybe for four, five, six. They will both be back before January but if we get there and we believe we need to sign some players, we will decide.”

Tottenham were very prudent over the summer, where they simply made minor tweaks to their current squad.

Spurs signed just five players in the most recent transfer window, but every player they brought in added value to their team, and they have benefitted from Pochettino's eye for a player.

The Lilywhites have pieced together a very impressive start to the season, and are currently unbeaten in eight matches in the Premier League.

Tottenham's next domestic fixture comes against Bournemouth on Sunday, but they will be focused on the Europa League at the moment, as they prepare to take in a continental fixture against Anderlecht later this evening.
