Alvaro Morata rejected Spurs move because of Harry Kane, claims Mauricio Pochettino

Alvaro Morata rejected Spurs move because of Harry Kane, claims Mauricio Pochettino”

It is often said that teams with real ambitions can not afford to stand still, yet there is a strong argument that Tottenham's refusal to enter the market place is testament to the quality already at manager Mauricio Pochettino's disposal.

Criticised for their lack of activity on the transfer market, Spurs could be set for a late rally with reports linking the Premier League to two new reinforcements.

Tottenham begin their Premier League campaign away to Newcastle on August 13 and the Argentine will want more personnel in place when they do to take some of the pressure away from the likes of Harry Kane who is heavily relied upon for goals.

Tottenham are armed with cash, following the sale of Kyle Walker, and Pastore would surely be one of the best players available to them.

Meyer is an attacking player who can play an advanced role in midfield or as a forward and that versatility would certainly be appreciated by the Spurs boss as he looks to bolster his options ahead of the new campaign.

There are some concerns for Tottenham, however.

And former Manchester United defender Neville believes that the Lilywhites are likely to drop out of the top four next season. "Tottenham's back-up could be stronger. One signing would change it".

Last season at their now-demolished White Hart Lane stadium Tottenham were unbeatable, dropping only four points at home. "Their home form was near ideal last season and the move to Wembley will affect that".

No arrivals have stepped foot through the doors of Tottenham this window, whilst Premier League rivals have gone above and beyond in ensuring their respective teams are ready for the forthcoming Premier League season.
