Pochettino reveals he’s ‘open’ to January signings

Mauricio Pochettino has said that he is ‘open’ to bringing new players to Tottenham Hotspur in the remaining days of the transfer window, adding that there is a ‘chance’ that the club could do business.

Last summer, Spurs became the first side in Premier League history to fail to sign a single player in the summer transfer window, and with over three weeks gone in the January market, the North London side still looks no nearer to strengthening their squad.

However, the need for reinforcements has been further highlighted in recent weeks, with Mauricio Pochettino losing Harry Kane and Dele Alli to injury, all while Heung Min Son is away on international duty at the Asian games.

With, Fernando Llorente the only recognised striker available to the Argentine manager, he hasn’t ruled out the possibility of new arrivals in the final week of the transfer window.

“I am more than open to improve and to add players to the squad. You can find on the internet or my previous press conferences that I always say the same thing,’’ Pochettino told the press ahead of his sides FA Cup clash with Crystal Palace.

“If we can find the right player that is going to help us improve, then we will…but we were never close. There is always a chance. We have still seven days [of the transfer window].

“We have more spaces because Dembele has gone, but we have to be careful.

“We are always open to try to add quality. We have plenty of young players who can play and cover some space.”

Spurs were dumped out of the Carabao Cup semi-finals by Chelsea on Thursday night, despite going into the game with a 1-0 lead from the first-leg.
