Tottenham Transfer: New Signings Will Arrive - Pochettino

Kieran Trippier

They finished third in 2015-'16 and second in 2016-'17. They asked, "Who is in your house?' I'd say 'Ginola" and they'd all come because they wanted to see him.

Pochettino has tended to refresh his central midfield pairing every year, so Winks can make the position his own by the end of the season.

That is an excellent back five and Tottenham will expect to have one of the best clean sheet records in the league this season.

He has done so well in getting these young players to believe in his footballing philosophy and getting them to play in such a high-intensity style both in and out of possession. If that pattern is maintained, they will win the Premier League title this season and that surely has to be the aim of the club.

"It's a big challenge for us", the Argentine told TalkSport on Wednesday. But this season seems different. It's very rare a transaction doesn't go through eventually, as we saw with Neymar.

Injuries. Tottenham's first choice team is fantastic, they have the best back four in the league returning (minus Walker), and they should be able to hang with any team in the league.

The club have also cashed in on Kyle Walker, squeezing £50m out of Manchester City for the England worldwide.

But in football they say, "buy when at the top". Tottenham still have three weeks to strengthen their squad.

They have made some serious ventures into the transfer market on a relatively small budget, Watford have also brought in a very experienced manager in Marco Silva. It is the players' perspective that ultimately matters most.

"We need players that can challenge our starting XI".

Erik Lamela is an ideal fit for Spurs if he recovers from injury. Kane, though, was sidelined twice during the campaign and that directly affected their results.

There have been 14 goals scored in the last three Premier League meetings between these two clubs at St James' Park.

However, Kane has never scored a Premier League goal in August (10 games).

This shows how thin Tottenham's squad is. "Or Dele Alli or Kante".

The issue, though, might be financing. In addition, Spurs are building the newest, biggest, and best club stadium in England, which will open in fall 2018. Arsenal faced similar issues from the mid- to late-noughties.

Wembley has not proved to be an easy host for Tottenham. The hand-wringing about playing a season at Wembley may be overblown, but Spurs were undefeated in the last season at the Lane, and it's always tough to adapt to playing in a new place. They played four European matches at Wembley and won only one of them. That means bona fide superstars like Dele Alli, Harry Kane and Hugo Lloris will still call Tottenham their home club when the season commences.
