Hugo Lloris insists Tottenham's quiet window will not hurt Spurs' confidence

Tottenham Hotspur are still awaiting their first signing of the summer despite the new Premier League season being just a few weeks away.

Hugo Lloris has insisted that he is not bothered about Tottenham's lack of transfer activity during the summer window, insisting that there is enough confidence that the team will be successful whatever happens, Sky Sports reports.

It has probably been a frustrating window for Spurs supporters with no players so far brought in despite the £53 million that was made following the sale of Kyle Walker to Manchester City - as reported by the Guardian

With just a couple of weeks to go before the new Premier League season, Mauricio Pochettino would have surely preferred to have any new signings through the door by this stage to allow them to adapt to their new surroundings - but Lloris is adamant that the lack of business will not hurt the team.

"After the last two season's we've built such a confidence in the squad. We'll try to keep the same way, with the same attitude and the same energy and try to be as competitive as possible," he said, as reported by Sky Sports.

"Honestly I don't care about that (transfers). It belongs to the chairman and the manager. I'm just a player and I'm committed to my team.

"We trust each other. We're used to working together for a while now and we will be ready to be competitive again this season."

Having some so close to challenging for the title in the past couple of seasons - and coupled with that league performance was a run to the FA Cup semi-finals and a Champions League group-stage campaign last term - it would not be a surprise if Tottenham fans were urging the club to add to the squad in the very near future.

Although Lloris appears to be confident that signing players is not necessarily essential, the fact that they have come so close to glory in the last two years but just fallen short hints that they simply need the final piece of the jigsaw.

Though that is, of course, much easier said than done, and Pochettino may argue that the progress the squad has made could mean that they themselves could be that final piece in time, falling short once again during the coming season will surely be an even tougher pill to swallow if this summer has passed without a new signing coming in.
