Despite not signing anyone during the transfer window Mauricio Pochettino has admitted that players may still leave the club this summer.
Due to the Premier League transfer window closing earlier than normal this summer, it felt like there was a lot more business done. Really there was about the same amount of action as there normally is but it was just packed into a much shorter space of time. The saga revolving around the Chelsea trio rumored to leave and the transfer record for a goalkeeper being broken twice were the highlights.
Meanwhile, Tottenham Hotspur was watching everything happen and didn't act on it at all. In fact, the club became the first in Premier League history to not make a single singing during the summer transfer window. On the plus side for Spurs fans though, their team didn't lose any big names over the summer either.
Well, until now. Even though the transfer window has closed in England, it is still open elsewhere in Europe which means non-UK clubs are still allowed to sign players. Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has admitted to Sky Sports that some of his players might still leave the club this summer. "If some player is not happy because he needs to play or believes he can play more at another team...I told them that I am open to find the solution," Pochettino revealed.
The two biggest names that could leave North London before the end of August are Toby Alderweireld and Danny Rose. The former was rumored to be leaving Tottenham for Manchester United, however, now that can't happen Bayern Munich is apparently interested in bringing him in. England international Rose, on the other hand, has reportedly caught the attention of French champions Paris Saint Germain.
Even though Pochettino didn't add anyone to Spurs' ranks over the summer, his side still got off to winning ways against Newcastle United last weekend. That was without the possibly departing Alderweireld and Rose too. Whether they can keep that going for an entire season is yet to be seen, and if a few losses come soon then that January transfer window will start to look awfully far away.
