Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is resisting calls to spend money on a striker; he would rather promote an Academy player than buy the wrong player.

Harry Kane is Tottenham’s only out-and-out striker and he has played all but 42 minutes of Tottenham’s Premier League campaign, but there is no chance of the Argentine sanctioning a panic buy.

He does insist there are no shortage of options, saying: “There’s a lot of players and names that want to come to us because Tottenham is a big club.

“I think the project is very attractive – the philosophy, how the team plays. There’s a lot of players that want to come and it’s important for us to pick the right players. If it’s not possible now it’s not a big problem for me.

“Maybe the people or you are worried or concerned about different things but I’m happy with the squad we have.

“I’ve always told you we need to add the right profile or people or players to improve us. If we don’t find the right player that can improve us, then why do it? To bring a player just to bring him in? This is not our philosophy. We have enough quality, we have younger players in our academy with a lot of potential like Shayon Harrison and Kazaiah Sterling.

“I can give a lot of names that are very young and are hungry and can help us to achieve everything.

“It’s ok and you are right that we can add some players to help us and improve the squad, but if we don’t find this player we have enough youngsters to help us.”
