Tottenham will announce a new signing ‘in the next few days’

first_imgMauricio Pochettino says Tottenham will announce a new signing in the next few days.Spurs have signed three defenders in Kieran Trippier, Toby Alderweireld and Kevin Wimmer so far this summer, but with Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor both expected to leave the club, Harry Kane is at risk of becoming their sole senior striker.“We have our target, I think in the next few days maybe something [will] happen,” said Pochettino, ahead of Tottenham’s trip to Old Trafford on Saturday to face Manchester United in the opening fixture of the new Barclays Premier League season.“No worries about that and the people won’t worry about the team because we have a lot of good players that can play like a striker.“We need to be [more] solid than last season because we scored a lot of goals but the problem was we conceded a lot of goals. If we are more solid maybe we can reduce the gap with the top four.”Pochettino continues to be linked with transfers for Stuttgart’s Timo Werner, QPR forward Charlie Austin and West Brom’s Saido Berahino.The Spurs manager also insists that midfielder Mousa Dembele has a future at White Hart Lane.The Belgian international was often left out of Pochettino’s first-choice midfield and was widely considered unsuited to the Argentinian’s preferred intense, high-pressing style of play, but the Tottenham manager believes the player can be a success at the north London club and is working on inspiring an improvement from him.“Yes, he’s in my plans, Dembele,” said Pochettino, whose team begin the Barclays Premier League season at Manchester United on Saturday lunchtime.“I think we need to try to provide him [with a platform] to show his real quality here. It’s true the last season was difficult for him, but [not] only was it difficult for him at Tottenham – with his national team too.“It’s for that reason we need to try to provide him the best position on the pitch or try to find the best position for him, to show the quality that he has. 1 Mauricio Pochettino last_img
