However, with less than 24 hours to go before their season opener against Newcastle United, reports from France have indicated that Mauricio Pochettino has lodged a bid for Manchester United'sAnthony Martial.
That news seems to have alerted Spurs that Martial could be available and a bid was made but rejected straight away, according to RMC Sport.
Martial has been a key player in Man United's pre-season matches, even providing a wonderful assist against La Liga giants Real Madrid.
Although Mourinho has insisted on numerous occasions that he intends to keep the French worldwide at Old Trafford, it hasn't stopped some reports this summer that he could be set to leave. Per Bouhafsi, Italian side Inter also made an unsuccessful offer.
"I am reaching my peak and have probably only got one big contract left in me", the England defender was quoted as saying by Press Association last week.
"I don't see much opportunity for Martial, I think he might have to be squeezed out".
"I'm not saying I want out, but if something came to me that was concrete, I'd have no qualms about voicing my opinions to anyone at the club". The player scored 8 goals in 42 appearances last term, and will hope to better the statistic this season. He has not played for the club since suffering a knee injury in January but is expected to return to action before the end of the month.
