Pochettino expects 'complicated' transfer window for Spurs

Tottenham Hotspur's Argentinian head coach Mauricio Pochettino looks on during the English FA Cup semi-final football match between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United at Wembley

Tottenham Hotspur's Argentinian head coach Mauricio Pochettino looks on during the English FA Cup semi-final football match between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United at Wembley

Spurs had won just one of their previous five games as a late season slump threatened to cost them Champions League football.

However, Pochettino expects a hard off-season as Spurs will have to compete with the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool to lure the best players to north London.

They could finish third if they beat Leicester on Sunday in their final league game at the national stadium and Pochettino said he would enjoy their success before plotting a Premier League title challenge for 2018-19.

"We progressed well from the last season".

Harry Kane is the only player that has come out publicly to state that his desire is to see out the rest of his career in London with Tottenham. Then of course if you have a strong financial side you can go buy some players.

"But of course it is not new for us". I want the project, I want to work to develop the play and the squad. "It will be a fantastic stadium, but you need to make the stadium your home". Sometimes you need to sign opportunities when you can't get your top priorities.

"To be sure it is complicated". The improvement is there and it is shown that they can continue to grow, but the only thing needed to be fulfilled is a trophy after four years in charge of Tottenham, and what other way to do it than in their inaugural year in their new stadium.

He said: "Sometimes we can not have success or we do not have the good result or reward, but about the performance and desire, we have to put on the pitch our best performance, collectively and individually".

"Only you know in football that everything can happen".

"In transfer windows, you can never put your finger on it. It won't be easy but we are going to try".

Take a look through the gallery above to see the Premier League top scorers ahead of Gameweek 38. It's important with the new stadium. There is only hope by fans and board members for the team to win any type of silverware even if it's only a league cup or the FA Cup.
