‘We need some new faces’ Tottenham Manager Admits That He Wants New Faces Before The Window Shuts

Tottenham Hotspur remain the only side in the Premier league not to have signed a player this summer. Going by what happened in the season opener, there isn’t a strong necessity to sign someone immediately but manager Mauricio Pochettino feels that new energy is required for his squad (Evening Standard).

Spurs’ transfer business is a cause of heartburn for the fans as the lack of signings is frustrating, especially after selling right-back Kyle Walker to Manchester City for a record £50million. To make things worse, left-back Danny Rose gave an explosive interview about the club’s ambition and the low wages being offered. The timing of the interview couldn’t have been worse and was seen to be rocking the boat.

Credit to the players though as they were clinical in their job against Newcastle United in the weekend, brushing them off 2-0, with goals from Dele Alli and Ben Davies.

However, Pochettino expects the club to make reinforcements soon, although he warned that any action may have to wait until the dying moments of the transfer window. As quoted by the Evening Standard, the manager said:

“We need some new faces to bring new energy in the team. It’s always important to challenge your best players. It’s true that we are calm and we are strong enough to compete in the same way we did last season.”

The Argentine then went on to add that he recognizes the importance of injecting fresh blood into the squad, more so with the club involved in the UEFA Champions League. He said:

“But for me we need to sign some new players before the end of the transfer window. I think it’s always important to refresh the squad and help the competition between us. We have 10 months ahead of us and we are involved in four competitions.

“The Champions League demands a lot of energy. We need more competition, more quality and more players that can help the team to keep the level that we want to show in every game.”

Who Can The Signings Be?

Spurs remain keen on signing Everton playmaker Ross Barkley although that interest has been alive all summer. The Toffees are ready to climb down on their asking price which could well mean a deal being concluded in the coming days (Telegraph).

There are question marks over Barkley’s consistency although his potential appeals for Pochettino who believes that he can be a quality addition to lift his squad.

Another name doing the rounds is that of Ajax defender Davinson Sanchez. The young Colombian defender is one of the best talents in his position and signing him would be a real coup.

With the sale of Walker and the injury to Kieran Trippier, Pochettino is left with only the promising Kyle Walker-Peters in his squad as the lone fit right-back. Signing Sanchez would definitely add value and competition to Spurs, which is what Pochettino is aiming for.

It is crucial that we start signing players for key positions and continue to challenge on all four fronts. Over the last couple of seasons, Tottenham were the most consistent side in Premier League. Not building on that would be criminal and Pochettino wants to address that by signing new players this summer.

Hopefully, we end up signing our desired targets!
