‘Daniel Ley is very keen to sign players’ – Pochettino Clears The Air Around Latest Reports

Even though we have not signed a single player in the summer transfer window, Mauricio Pochettino still claims that Daniel Levy is not holding us back in our attempts to bring in fresh talent. As most of us are aware, we are the only club in the Premier League not to have bought a single player in the summer window, even though we have been linked with a number of players.

Levy had also recently stated that the club wants to promote players from the academy and not spend ludicrous amounts in the transfer market for players. When our Argentine manager was asked if Levy was a reason why we have not signed any players in the summer, Poch clearly denied such a reason.

Speaking to the Mirror, the former Espanyol manager said:

“That is a very wrong perception. In three years, my experience with Daniel has always been trying to find a player to improve the squad. The difference is were they the right or wrong signing? But I think Daniel is very keen to sign every season in my experience.

“When I first came, the transfer discussions were with Franco Baldini and then later Paul Mitchell. We have a lot of meetings, spontaneous meetings, talking every day on the training ground. I think we are all involved in the process, Daniel included.

“Of course the last decision is between Daniel and me if we sign the player. But we are all involved in the process to try to find the right player for us. But the thing is Daniel is very keen to sign players like me.”

Big Money Spent By Clubs In The Premier League

It is perfectly alright to worry about the side not continuing in the same vein of form as last season. We finished second in the Premier League behind Chelsea but have seen the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal and even Everton spend big to overhaul their squads.

While our manager still speaks about getting the right players in, he does make sense given that we should not be wasting money on the wrong kind of players. Moussa Sissoko and Vincent Janssen are a couple of examples of this and that is one reason why we are so cautious this time around.

Not bringing in fresh talent would be criminal to our chances of going one better in the Premier League and hopefully, Levy and Pochettino have a plan to ensure we get another batch of great players starring for us this season.

  1. If he’s that keen to sign players then sign them, no one else has the problems Levy has, he only has the problems he brings on himself.

  2. What a piece of nonsense. We have plenty of time and will be adding 3 or 4 additions who will help us move forward. The only signing that Levy needs to hurry with is Alderweireld. Janssen will “come good” this season. So will Sissoko if he stays. Just because Spurs are better staffed than most is no reason to rush into the market or pay ridiculous fees. We will be ready and have more depth before the window closes.

  3. The recruitment policy is obvious, youth with potential to improve. Some of those type of players won’t officially become available until the circus of players we can’t afford anyway are bought and block out others. Iheanacho being prime example. We can’t realistically or legally compete yet with wages so have to convince players into our bonus incentives. Other teams have gaps that need filling, we’re strong from 1 to 11 in every position so there is no panic so long as we do buy a few decent young lads in the right positions. Barkley sounds obvious but we’ve been here before with Berahino and Benteke! Wander if Bale would consider taking a paycut and coming back lol Iheanacho would have been a good buy for us, i’m less fussed about adding to midfield as we have some good young lads to lighten the load on cup games and would much rather look at bolstering the defence numbers.
