According to The Telegraph, Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino's comments about January are actually geared more towards sales than signings.

Spurs lost at Colchester United on Tuesday night, crashing out of the Carabao Cup on penalties in an embarrassing defeat to the fourth-tier side.

After the game, Pochettino spoke about his players, and told Sky Sports that he was already looking to the January transfer window to fix some of Tottenham's problems.

 

Some fans were baffled by those comments given that the summer window only closed last month, but reports are now emerging about what he actually meant.

It's claimed that his comments were actually referring to trimming his squad rather than bringing in new signings, which may be a little disappointing for fans to hear.

Pochettino may well be feeling that the likes of Victor Wanyama, Christian Eriksen and even Danny Rose could be moved on, with question marks over all of them.

Additionally, it's stated that chairman Daniel Levy will be slapping a £250million asking price on striker Harry Kane, in an attempt to ward off Barcelona, Manchester City and Real Madrid.

With his contract running until 2024, Tottenham are in a strong position on Kane, but their talismanic striker may well end up feeling he needs to leave in order to win trophies.
