Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has spoken of the challenges the club will face during the January transfer window.
Having exceeded their limit for foreign players in their Champions League squad, the North London club will face a struggle to make new additions.
The Argentine coach has warned that signing players in January could be near “impossible” given the restrictions.
Pochettino: “It’s impossible to sign players if we don’t have the space”
Pochettino was questioned about the possibility of returning for Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish during the winter window.
Whilst he refused to directly speak about the 22-year-old, he commented on the possibility of new signings.
Pochettino told Football.London:
“Look, I think there were plenty of players linked with Tottenham, not only last summer but in the previous season.
“You know it’s difficult to talk about rumours, about names.
“We’ll see what happens in January. We have a full squad, we have 28 in the squad.
“It’s impossible to sign players if we don’t have the space.
“We don’t have enough space at the moment.
“I think it makes no sense now to talk about signing players.”
Tottenham fans discuss January transfer plans
GKN and Janssen need to move on ASAP. Dembele, if recovered from injury, may be sold. Llorente could be sold as well. Maybe KWP to go on loan somewhere. Incoming, funds willing, Rabiot or Barrios. Maybe a striker.

Leave: Janssen, Llorente, Dembele, GKN, Vorm, maybe Rose
IN: Rabiot or Barrios, Tierney or Grimaldo, Van De Beek/ De Jong, new striker

GKN + Janssen out.
Dembele (I love this guy) also sold – too many injuries. From combined money: Ndombele
Llorente sold – In his place Calum Wilson
Vorm sold – any English player on his place (to do not keep space for the foreign player)
1 place for non-HG available.
