Tottenham make £25m bid to sign 22-year-old

"But when it is not possible, why create a problem that can only disturb or not help the club and your teammates?"

With 11 caps for his country, the defender is clearly talented but was overlooked for the World Cup squad this summer, missing out on Les Bleus' triumph. "Some people make a drama in football and drama for me is another thing", Pochettino added.

The Gunners went from one of the best teams in Europe to Premier League also-rans in the aftermath of their move to a new crib, due in no uncertain terms to the financial restrictions placed on them as a result, and the worry for the Tottenham faithful will be that they are following a similar pattern. "We hope he's still our player by Friday", Villa manager Steve Bruce told BBC West Midlands earlier this week. Then with Brexit it's worse because the cost is 30 per cent more.

They crave new signings in the same way five-year-olds crave presents, but imagine the scene if those children found out that good old Kris Kringle hadn't visited their house.

Pochettino and Daniel Levy are playing a risky game and they will be praying that the young and talented squad they have built over the last few years can improve again to keep pace with the fast paced of the Premier League. The people at Tottenham who manage and decide and take the way to act is the board and is not the players'.

Alderweireld's teammates Danny Rose and Mousa Dembele were also expected to leave the club this summer but failed to get their moves over the line before the transfer deadline. Pochettino has warned the trio they must now buckle down. It's a massive challenge for us to try to deliver the best tools for them to get fit and then to prepare them for the whole season, not only for one, two or three games or for one month.

"We are always open to finding the solution when it is possible".

The Tottenham Hotspur Supporters' Trust has called on the club to explain the absence of transfer activity. We didn't sell players and with 25 in the squad it is hard to add. "We believe a lot in our players".
