Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has claimed chairman Daniel Levy is working hard with chief scout Steve Hitchen to deliver signings before the transfer deadline.
In quotes published by The Independent, the Spurs boss admitted the transfer window is difficult due to the club’s philosophy, but reassured supporters that there is a plan in place.
He said: “It is so difficult when you have a very good team and at a club like Tottenham you have a very clear philosophy and a plan that you want to follow.
“It is not easy to find right footballer. I think we are working and we’ll add some players to the end of the transfer window.
“We need to bring some new energy and strengthen our squad. I think everyone knows that – and first of all our chairman, Daniel [Levy], knows that.”
The Argentine added: “He’s [Levy] working hard with the chief scout Steve [Hitchen] and we are working hard too to deliver it and to add and strengthen to the team that we need to fight for competitions next season.”
Some Spurs fans will question just how hard the club is working to sign players. But Pochettino seems pretty certain new recruits will arrive shortly.
