Tottenham Manager Talks About January Transfers – Waiting For A ‘Special Player’

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino claims that the club will not be signing any new player in this January transfer window unless he comes across someone special. Tottenham have not signed any player in this window, which is surprising considering that the club have been criticised for their summer recruitment. However, recent form appears to have changed the mind of Pochettino, who would have otherwise looked at the possibility of bringing in a replacement for Vincent Janssen. Spurs are also not actively linked with any other signing.

When asked about the possibility of seeing new faces at White Hart Lane before the window closes on the next few days, Pochettino said that he is unlikely to do so unless a special signing is available. As reported by the London Evening Standard, Pochettino said

“I told you from the first day of the month that we are not thinking to sign players. If some special player becomes available who is a very good option, then maybe, but it hasn’t happened yet.

“Nothing is impossible because a player can arrive at the last moment but I don’t believe we will sign anyone.”

Spurs certainly have one of the best starting line-ups in the Premier League, but there is a widespread consensus that the club do not have enough strength in depth should any of the players get injured. One of the major names who may not have a good replacement is Harry Kane, who has scored bulk of the club’s goals in the last few weeks. The striker has scored 13 goals in the league this season and is certainly on his way to retaining the Golden Boot award that he won last season.

The club will learn more about the defensive squad strength as Jan Vertonghen will be unavailable for up to 2 months. Midfielder Eric Dier is likely to be called into this position, while Tottenham also had Toby Alderweireld injured during the game against Manchester City last week. This meant that youngster Harry Winks had to play in place of the defender.

The transfer window was seen as a great opportunity to strengthen the team in a number of positions. Squad strength is extremely important for a club which is competing on three fronts – Premier League, FA Cup, and Europa League. However, Pochettino been reluctant to enter into the transfer market does appear to be mystifying.

Construction works are in full swing on the £ 750 million stadium. Construction of a brand-new stadium is thought to have severely limited Arsenal’s ability to spend big in the transfer window for almost a decade. There are concerns that Tottenham could be heading down the same road, as Pochettino has been reluctant so far. Yet, the former Espanyol and Southampton manager has a history of not concentrating heavily on the January window. He tries to focus his purchases only in the summer, and the current situation may be more of the same.
