Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that Tottenham Hotspurs are only interested to bring in the right players despite their recent injury crisis.

Spurs are yet to sign a player since they last secured the services of Lucas Moura a year ago.

However, Pochettino believes they would only do business if they identify the right talent irrespective of the loss of key duo Alli and Kane.

He told Sky: “I always say I am more than open to add players to the squad. That is so clear. A different thing is if we can find the right player that is going to help us improve.

“We are working on a few options. We will see if we are able to deliver. We have one space now Mousa Dembele has gone.

Iwobi hopes Spurs lose the Champions League Final

According to the Arsenal footballer, his team is not thinking about that game, but their own final match against Chelsea.

“There’s two different things. One thing is to try to improve our squad with the right profile. Another thing is if you have some problems with players who are injured, and you try to replace them.

“We are going to sign if we identify the player that can improve us. We are not going to sign because we have some injuries. We have enough players to cover injuries.

“Of course, if you win, OK. But if you don’t win, maybe you need a different way to operate.”

Tottenham will face Crystal Palace in the FA Cup Fourth Round on Sunday, just three days after their Carabao Cup hopes were ended in the semi-finals by bitter rivals Chelsea.
