Mauricio Pochettino discusses what Tottenham must do in January transfer window

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 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.”
