Tottenham gaffer, Mauricio Pochettino has once again stated the transfer window could close without new additions to his squad, but he is not the man to reveal why.
Spurs are the only club in the topflight yet to make any addition to their squad, despite being linked with Martial and Grealish.
Pochettino has reiterated his previous comments that Spurs could end the summer window, which closes next week, without making a single transfer, and appeared to hint that chairman Daniel Levy is struggling to get deals over the line.
“Yes. We are working so hard but still we are like it’s the first day of the transfer window – with no signings,” he told a press conference.
“I think I am not the person to explain it.
“Of course, people expect the manager to explain that but, for different reasons, it’s been difficult to add players who can help us. But in the last week many things can happen.”
“I’m not relaxed because I’m a coach and you cannot be relaxed,” he added.
“I think you need to be confident and trust in the people we have and the way that we work.
“Of course, football is all about adding more quality every season like our rivals are doing.
“If we cannot do that, we need to try to be creative and, of course, the help of younger players will be amazing and they showed they can help us if, in the end, we cannot sign players.”
