Danny Rose issues Spurs apology even as Chelsea tempt with double wages

Joao Cancelo in action for Valencia against Juventus

Asked if Rose had a future at the club, Pochettino said: "Yes, of course".

Spurs are now the only team in the top-flight that have yet to make a new signing this summer.

Therefore, the Pochettino project has been based on maximising the young talent coming out of the Tottenham academy.

Giles also discussed Conte' s unhappiness at Chelsea and the other contenders for the Premier League title.

Pochettino said Spurs "need to bring new energy and strengthen our squad, everyone knows that", adding: "If you look at the history of Tottenham in the last few years, we always spend at the end of the window".

With the likes of Hugo Lloris, Jan Vertonghen, Mousa Dembele and Dele Alli as well as the aforementioned Alderweireld, Dier and Kane, Tottenham still have an impressive side - but Martin Keown believes that it's actually playmaker Christian Eriksen who is Tottenham's key player heading into the new season.

Tom Collomosse of the London Evening Standard (h/t Metro's Mark Brus) reported the Premier League champions and Manchester United will target the England global if he becomes available on the transfer market.

But they have struggled at Wembley in recent years, with the larger pitch not suiting Pochettino's preferred high-pressing style while the distance of the 90,000 fans can result in a less intense atmosphere than at their old stomping ground.

As in 2015, when he was Bournemouth's talisman during their promotion-winning campaign, Ritchie was Newcastle's most influential player last term, scoring 12 times and providing a further seven assists as they won the title.

"I think if that was to happen now it would be catastrophic for Newcastle, especially on the eve of what is going to be an incredibly tough season for them".

The London club continued to impress people finishing second last season, behind runaway champions Chelsea. Short: No significant hiring, and the headline move the departure of Kyle Walker, sold to Manchester City for over £50 million (Dh239m), a record-breaking sum for a right-back. Tottenham's starting XI (when all healthy) is still one of the best in the Premier League, but players can start to plateau if they know there's no one behind them that pushes them to keep their place. Plus, this is his chance to prove to the rest of the league that he's more than just a three season wonder. "This was important and good", Pochettino said.

Pochettino on his way to success?

If Spurs want to continue on their path to victory in both the Premier League and on the European stage then this season is crucial, they must still at least finish in the top four, get out of the Champions League group stage and aim to win one of the domestic cups.
