Tottenham boss Pochettino insists he will sign players

"Obviously, we had some games that were not the best but I think there were games where we played really good", Dembele said.

But, I almost fell off my perch when I heard Poch talking to Jim about just how many players he (Poch) and the club are looking to bring in before this summer transfer window closes.

The London-based club may see a £25 million price tag, as reported by the Daily Mail, as too steep - and he may demand too high a wage - but having missed out on several potential transfers already this summer, the risk of Tripper's injury leaving them short at the back may force their hand.

"If you look at the history of Tottenham in the last few years, we always spend at the end of the window".

"So I think what's happened is definitely that Kyle Walker has told him what he's getting and he's saying "well I'm 27 now, I'm going to do what a lot of other player do and want a move".

"I am reaching my peak and have probably only got one big contract left in me", he said. During the 2015/16 season, Spurs finished 3rd and they went one better during the last campaign.

Spurs' reluctance to spend while its title rivals have invested heavily in new players has prompted concerns it will be unable to challenge in 2017-18, but Pochettino has promised that there will be new arrivals before the window closes on August 31. There is no doubt Spurs have come a long way mentally and are now considered one of the most resilient teams in the league, but Tottenham will need to focus on the task at hand on Sunday, and not get carried away with the electric atmosphere on Tyneside.

Spurs have done next to nothing in the summer transfer market.

"We are working (towards signing players), and we were working before, to try and find a solution".

However, Trippier pulled up with an injury in Saturday's friendly against the Old Lady, meaning the Londoners may begin their Premier League campaign next weekend with 20-year-old Kyle Walker-Peters, who has yet to play a competitive match for the club.

Cancelo, or at least a player with similar panache, would go some way towards solving what is rapidly becoming a problem position for Tottenham.
