Tottenham Hotspur are still in the market for new signings, according to Mauricio Pochettino.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has told Sky Sports that he would like up to three more signings before the transfer window closes in less than two weeks.

Spurs have made two additions to their squad this summer, with midfielder Victor Wanyama joining from Southampton before Pochettino swooped to land Dutch hitman Vincent Janssen from AZ Alkmaar.

Both players featured on the opening day of the Premier League season as Spurs drew 1-1 with Everton, and will provide greater quality depth for Pochettino, giving that Tottenham will be balancing league commitment with their Champions League campaign.

Other clubs in the upper echelons of the Premier League, such as Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United, may have spent more this summer, but Pochettino is being careful in the transfer market.

He has though admitted that he would like more signings. A deal for Marseille winger Georges-Kevin Nkoudou has been resurrected according to the London Evening Standard, whilst The Mirror claim that a loan deal for Espanyol goalkeeper Pau Lopez may be on the cards too.

However, Pochettino has now told Sky Sports that he hopes to bring in up to three new signings before the transfer deadline later this month, but noted that he would be okay if Tottenham didn't make any more additions to their squad.

"I am very happy [with Tottenham's transfer activity this summer]. I know this is difficult in this crazy business that today is football," said Pochettino. "We have our philosophy and we follow our way and I think that makes us different to the other clubs."

"We try [to bring more players in]. We hope to sign one, two or three players - or maybe no-one. It depends on many things that will happen. We will try to find some players to sign," he added.

Another attacking midfielder could be on Pochettino's radar if the Lopez and Nkoudou deals manage to be completed, but Pochettino's right in saying that Tottenham's philosophy sets them apart from other clubs.

Whilst their rivals are taking advantage of the new Premier League TV deal by splashing exorbitant amounts of money on new signings, Tottenham are making calculated purchases; young players with potential with fees under £20m.

Pochettino knows how he wants his team to play, and snapping up young players - more impressionable, open to ideas and generally with better fitness - is perfect for his system at White Hart Lane. It may not grab headlines, but after last season's third place finish, the results speak for themselves.
