Mauricio Pochettino coy on Tottenham’s January transfer plans

Pochettino

Tottenham Hotspur are going to be careful with any transfer business they complete in January.

Speaking at Tottenham Hotspur’s fans’ forum, Mauricio Pochettino has given an indication of his January transfer plans with Spurs, being quoted by the official club Twitter account.

Pochettino has certainly not ruled out players arrive at White Hart Lane in January, but the head coach has admitted that transfer business in the mid-season window is much harder to complete.

Transfer values are inflated with selling clubs having control over deals, and there is a sense that a player brought in may not be able to show his true ability until the following season, due to adaptation times.

Pochettino has admitted that it will be difficult to find a suitable transfer for Spurs, and he needs to ensure his team are only bringing in players who match, or improve, upon the current quality in the team.

Considering Spurs have one of the best starting XIs in the Premier League, it will be hard to find a player who would be a wise signing, and fits in the price range that Daniel Levy will be willing to sanction.

The only area of the squad that seemingly needs improvement is upfront, with Harry Kane still the only out-and-out striker in the Tottenham squad.

Heung-Min Son and Clinton N’Jie can play upfront, but neither of them are natural in that role, and a real front man should come in to provide cover for Kane; both in case of injury or loss of form to the English forward.
