Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino admitted that he is expecting a quiet January despite the club’s woeful start to the campaign.
Pochettino was left massively frustrated in the summer after making just four signings and didn’t get the overall in players he was expecting – with the likes of Toby Alderweireld, Serge Aurier, Danny Rose, Victor Wanyama and Christian Eriksen all remaining at the club.
This January transfer window represents Tottenham’s final opportunity to sell Eriksen for a fee, who will be available on a free is he isn’t sold, and have already been linked with a number of star names to replace the Danish international, including Real Madrid ace Isco, Bruno Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon and Juventus’ Paulo Dybala, who they came close to bringing to North London on deadline day back in August.
However, when asked this afternoon about his plans for January and whether he expects to make any signings, the Spurs boss said: “I don’t believe so. I believe in the players that we have at Tottenham today. If it’s my decision I will stick with my players. They have the quality. We have great quality to fight for the things we expect to fight.”
