Mauricio Pochettino says Tottenham are unlikely to do any business in this month’s transfer window – unless a “special player” becomes available.
Spurs have not added to their title-chasing squad this month, after just two defeats in 22 Premier League games.
They did allow midfielder Tom Carroll to join Swansea City for £4.5m but Pochettino says he does not expect to sign anyone before Tuesday’s 11pm deadline.
Speaking at a press conference ahead of Spurs’ FA Cup tie with Wycombe Wanderers, the Argentinian said only an exceptional talent could tempt him to spend this month.
“I told you from the first day of the month that we are not thinking to sign players,” he said.
“If some special player becomes available who is a very good option, then maybe, but it hasn’t happened yet.
“Nothing is impossible, because a player can arrive at the last moment, but I don’t believe we will sign anyone.”
Spurs did sign French duo Georges-Kevin N’Koudou and Moussa Sissoko on the last day of the August transfer window, from Marseille and Newcastle respectively, only wrapping up a £30m move for the latter in the closing hours.
But Pochettino is adamant that he does not expect a repeat this time around,
