Mauricio Pochettino has admitted that Tottenham Hotspur are open to signing "one or two players" before the end of the summer transfer window. The north London club completed only two signings so far as midfielder Victor Wanyama and Dutch forward Vincent Janssen have moved to the White Hart Lane.
Everton host Tottenham in what will be their first Premier League match of the 2016/17 season on 13 August. The Argentine manager is open to the idea of further strengthening his side, only if they can improve the existing squad.
"We are open to adding one or two players or maybe no one. But if we have the possibility to sign a player that can improve us, we are very open," Pochettino said, as quoted by Sky Sports.
Wanyama joined Spurs from Pochettino's former club, Southampton. Janssen arrived at the Lane from Eredivisie side AZ Alkmaar. They were signed by Tottenham for a combined fee of £28m ($36.3m).
Manchester United and Manchester City have spent heavily in the current transfer window. The Red Devils resigned Paul Pogba for a world-record fee of £89m ($115.4m), taking their overall spending above £140m ($181.6m) mark.
Pep Guardiola has also brought in eight new players to City's squad this summer. They include quality players like Ilkay Gundogan, John Stones, Leroy Sane and Brazilian Gabriel Jesus. The Etihad outfit have also spent close to £150m ($194.5m) and Pochettino has taken a dig at the Manchester clubs by suggesting that both United and City are "desperate" to improve their squad.
"I am very happy with my players, I think it is very difficult to find better players than we have. That shows when you spend a lot of money it is because you are not happy with your squad or your players and you are desperate to improve your squad," Tottenham manager added.
