“It’s impossible to bring players”: Pochettino claims Tottenham have to sell before signing new players

Mauricio Pochettino Tottenham

Mauricio Pochettino has stated that Tottenham have to sell players before they can buy in the winter window.

Spurs were the only side not to sign someone in the summer, and the boss highlighted that we did not have the capacity to bring players in unless some cuts were made (h/t Mirror):

“In case we don’t sell players, it’s impossible to bring players [in]. And to find the capacity to bring [players in].

“Of course, we are going to create again the system to work in the last part of the season in the best way, trying to give our best for this club.”

The Mirror adds that Spurs are looking to offload several players including Mousa Dembele, Fernando Llorente, Victor Wanyama and Georges-Kevin Nkoudou.

The Argentine went on to suggest that he would not be disappointed if the club did not sign anyone in January.

“In the same way, if you find some player, look what happened to different players that arrive in January. Last season. It takes time to understand and to perform, to fit with the team.

“Sometimes it’s better not to sign if you don’t find the right player. Sometimes it’s better for the team spirit. But not in general.”

Pochettino has done a wonderful job this season given that he is using the same squad as last season. We sit third in the Premier League just six points behind leaders Liverpool, are in the knockout rounds of the Champions League and have a two-legged Carabao Cup semi-final against Chelsea.

Spurs could do with some signings to increase the strength of the squad given our fixture congestion in the coming months.

Our manager has been fantastic in ensuring the team keeps pushing on this season, despite a few bumps on the road, and hopefully, we can ship out some of the deadwood and replace them with quality soon.

Spurs transfer news: Real Madrid slap €50m price-tag on Dani Ceballos

AS (h/t Metro) reports that Real Madrid have slapped a €50m price-tag on Tottenham target Dani Ceballos.

The Spanish star is currently away on U21 Euro duty, and the report claims that the 22-year-old is expected to leave the La Liga giants.

The report adds that Madrid will sell the youngster to balance their books as they have already spent more than €300m in the market. Real Madrid president Florentino Perez rates Ceballos highly, but it seems that the youngster has not impressed manager Zinedine Zidane.

Ceballos started several games under Julen Lopetegui but Zidane’s return saw the Spaniard fall down the pecking order.

The Frenchman is happy to let the attacking midfielder go, and the report adds that Ceballos is a priority for Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino.

The report claims that Spurs have already held preliminary talks with the Real Madrid star, while Arsenal and AC Milan are also interested in the 22-year-old.

Spanish star seen as Eriksen’s replacement

Christian Eriksen had spoken of a desire to face a new challenge, and the report adds that Ceballos is seen as the Dane’s replacement.

Real Betis star Giovani Lo Celso is the other player touted as Eriksen’s replacement (h/t Metro) and is also on international duty.

Tottenham star could end tough time at North London as Belgian giants are keen on the 25-year-old

Spurs transfer news: Belgian side Anderlecht interested in Vincent Janssen

Vincent Janssen’s horrible time in the Premier League could come to an end. The Dutch striker joined Tottenham from AZ in 2016 but struggled to make a mark in the Premier League.

The 25-year-old was one of the brightest talents in the Eredivisie before he moved to Tottenham, but things have not gone well for Janssen.

The Dutch striker only made 42 appearances for us across three seasons and scored just six times. Janssen also spent the 2017-18 season at Fenerbahce and could be off to Belgium.

Het Laatste Nieuws (h/t Football.london) claims that Anderlecht are interested in signing the 25-year-old.

Selling Janssen seems to be the right move for Spurs

The Dutch striker does not seem to be in our plans and getting rid of him as quickly as possible would be good for all parties involved.

Janssen just could not fire at Tottenham, and it is a little upsetting that he wasn’t able to complete the transition from the Dutch league.

Selling Janssen should have been a part of our transfer plan for a while, and we need to make some moves in the summer window.

Tottenham need to sign a cover for Harry Kane as the English striker missed chunks of the season last time around.

Tottenham offer £17m to sign Turkish league starlet – willing add 25-year-old flop in the deal

Spurs transfer news: Tottenham offer £17m and will offer Vincent Janssen for Elif Elmas

The Guardian claims that Tottenham are interested in Fenerbahce starlet Elif Elmas.

The 19-year-old is now a regular for the Turkish giants and is a Macedonian international.

The attacking midfielder scored four goals for Fenerbahce in the league last season and even played seven Europa League games. Elmas is one of the brightest prospects in the Turkish league and the report claims that we have offered £17m for the 19-year-old.

The report further claims that Spurs are willing to offer Vincent Janssen in any deal to land the Macedonian starlet.

Elmas can play in a deeper role and also played out wide last season at Fenerbahce.

Forgotten man to land us a youngster?

Janssen has struggled since arriving from the Netherlands and selling him off is the best course of action for Spurs.

Including him in a deal to sign a fresh face would be a decent bit of business too.

The Dutch forward made three substitute appearances for us last season and even struggled with injuries.

The 25-year-old does not seem to be a part of Mauricio Pochettino’s plans and hopefully, we can sell him in the summer.

Janssen was also sent on loan to Fenerbahce a couple of years ago, and that could work in our favour as we are interested in Elmas.

Tottenham choose Leeds starlet over 22-goal Championship star as they look to finalise the deal

Spurs transfer news: Tottenham chose Jack Clarke over Jarrod Bowen for possible summer deal

The Sun reports that Tottenham are close to landing Leeds United’s teenage winger Jack Clarke.

The 18-year-old scored two goals and provided a couple of assists in the last Championship campaign, and was primarily used as a sub by Marcelo Bielsa.

Leeds missed out on Premier League promotion, but Clarke impressed in several outings and would be a great addition to the Tottenham side.

Football.london’s Alasdair Gold spoke to Leeds Live regarding the possible move for Clarke, and claimed that Tottenham eyed another winger too:

“They’ve been scouting him for a while now and from what I understand Spurs were looking at Jack Clarke and Jarrod Bowen closely in the Championship last season and it was the younger Leeds man who eventually became the sole focus of their attention.”

The journalist added that Clarke could be sent back on loan to the Championship side, but that depends on how much we pay for the 18-year-old.

Bowen would have been a good call too

The Hull City winger was one of the stars in the Championship last time around, as he scored 22 goals and provided four assists for the Tigers. Bowen is older than Clarke by four years and seems ready for the step up to the Premier League.

However, Mauricio Pochettino has a penchant to work with young talents and Clarke seems to be a perfect fit.

It will be interesting to see if Spurs do send Clarke back on loan if he is signed. The Englishman will receive a lot more starts in the Championship than he would by staying at Tottenham.
