Mauricio Pochettino: New signings must be able to challenge Spurs stars

Fans are desperate to see some new faces at White Hart Lane, with Everton playmaker Ross Barkley a potential arrival.

Tottenham have been excellent for the last two seasons and have been extremely unlucky not to have a trophy to show for their efforts. They also lost the FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea at the same ground. He was injured at the start of the season and Tottenham made a slow start. I keep hearing "we're good enough" but I'm sorry, they're not good enough at the moment.

It's explained that Tottenham, being a Premier League club, would be attractive financially for the transfer, and competition to other interested parties, like Juventus, can only help.

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

The North London side are in the market for a right-back following Kyle Walker's big-money move to Manchester City, with Spurs not making a first-team signing yet this summer.

The aptly named Kyle Walker-Peters has been touted as that possible replacement, but despite impressing in the preseason, the 20-year-old is still yet to play a single minute of senior football. "They do need a couple more squad players before the end of the window, however".

Levy has stated that he believes Spurs now have the squad to compete for the Premier League title, and do not need to spend big money like other clubs have in this window. If that pattern is maintained, they will win the Premier League title this season and that surely has to be the aim of the club. But that doesn't change the fact that Spurs haven't bought any players - whether they be big-name ones or bargain buys to bolster the first-team squad - so far.

It was a twist of fate involving the misfiring Roberto Soldado that gave Harry Kane the opportunity to become Tottenham's first choice striker back in 2014 - and after taking that opportunity with both hands, the Englishman has never looked back.

But Son returned to training last week and although he didn't feature against Juventus on Saturday, he has a chance of being fit for Newcastle.

There are a few reasons why that will be hard and their current position in the pre-season odds reflect that the general mood in the game is that Spurs will struggle to challenge at the top end of the division again this season.
