Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino targets three more signings before transfer deadline

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino targets three more signings before transfer deadline

Danny Rose, Erik Lamela, and Georges N'Koudou are ruled out for the home side but right-back Kieran Trippier is expected to start. "He was the best keeper last season in the Championship, at Rayo Vallecano in Spain, and I think there's no doubt about signing him and creating more competition in our goal".

In what has now grown into something bordering in the territory of "strange obsession", Giles took aim at the Spurs midfielder in his column for The Herald [via Independent.ie] as he pointed out the failings of Mauricio Pochettino's side against Chelsea last weekend. Still awaiting Sanchez's forthcoming work permit, the club isn't sure if it will be approved in time for Sunday's match.

Sanchez, 21, completed his move to North London from Ajax on Wednesday - with Spurs having agreed terms with the Eredivisie side earlier in the month.

Rose has been out since way back in January due to a serious knee ligament injury that he suffered last season and Pochettino says the left-back is still a few weeks away from returning to training. "He's got a lot more to his game as well, he's got a great strike on him, keeps the ball moving all the time and is a fantastic player, it's a pleasure to play alongside him".

Regarding Gazzaniga, Pochettino said: "I think we needed another 'keeper because we have Hugo Lloris and Michel Vorm".

I thought it was very telling how Spurs struggled with the possession they had against Chelsea, given room to play and would point firmly at the change from the tight confines of White Hart Lane to their temporary new home as the reason. He is one of the most important and talented young players in Europe.

"He trained with us yesterday and will train with us again".

"He is so aggressive, so fast, and he loves to play with risk at his back", added Pochettino, referring to Sanchez's ability to play in a high defensive line.

Tottenham will be looking to get up and running at Wembley just 24 hours after rugby league's Challenge Cup final is played at the stadium. I think they know. "Today, I was talking for one hour with Toby". Davinson is with us because a lot of clubs were interested in him but he made a decision to join us.

Tottenham will attempt to break their Wembley-hoodoo when they host Burnley at their new home on Sunday.

"You can record and see in the morning when you wake up".
