Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has hinted that he won’t be dipping in to the transfer window this month, as reported by talkSPORT.
The Argentine has instead admitted that he is more likely to look to the club’s youth prospects to strengthen his team in January.
Pochettino has already seen that strategy work this season, with Harry Kane taking advantage of an extended run in the Spurs first team by scoring 17 goals in 27 games so far this term.
He told talkSPORT: “I am very focused on my players in our squad, we have a strong side.
“It is important to recognise the players that have come through the club’s academy.
“We have some real talent and they are starting to knock on my door and this is important for our squad.”
Spurs have been in impressive form recently, leaving them just three points adrift of four placed Manchester United after 22 games.
This has been largely down to the performances of 22-year-old midfielder Christian Eriksen, who netted the winner in Spurs’ 2-1 home win over Sunderland on Saturday.
It emerged earlier that Spurs had been boosted by the news that Paris Saint-Germain aren’t confident of keeping young midfielder Adrien Rabiot beyond this month.
