Pochettino laughs off Bale links but admits Spurs must strengthen

first_imgSpurs are yet to make any new additions to their squad this summer, and while the manager remains relaxed about their lack of transfer activity, he admitted the club must strengthen.“With or without injuries, I think that’s our target [to bring in players] after finishing last season,” said Pochettino. “We want to add some quality who can help us to achieve the goals we want.“We are going to see what happens in the next few days.”When asked why he was so relaxed about the situation, Pochettino said: “Nothing is going to change if you have different moods or humour.“You need to be relaxed and my focus is on helping the team and to deliver the way we want to play and to arrive in the best condition for the start of the season.”One player Tottenham could sign is highly-rated youngster Jack Grealish, but their hopes have been dealt a blow after the 22-year-old was told he cannot leave Aston Villa this summer.
