Mauricio Pochettino sheds light on Tottenham’s pursuit of a new striker and Harry Kane’s future

first_imgMauricio Pochettino expects Tottenham to respond from Wednesday night’s loss to Leicester and insists any of the Premier League’s top 10 can still win the title.Spurs conceded a late Robert Huth goal to fall seven points behind the Foxes and Arsenal in fourth place.Pochettino, who again reiterated striker Harry Kane is not for sale, has backed his charges to bounce back against Sunderland on Saturday, stating: “We missed a great opportunity to establish us on the top and you feel disappointed but you need to carry on and keep working hard.“It’s a very open league. So far anything can happen. All [clubs] in the top 10 have the possibility to win the league.“We played well, we deserved more, but in football you need sometimes to have some luck. It wasn’t for us last night.“In the way we played last night it’s nothing to worry [about] for the future.“We have a quick game on Saturday. It’s very important. We must react, play well and take the three points, because we need to keep our position in the table.”Spurs spurned opportunities and Pochettino remains in search of a striker to ease the burden on Kane.Kane was recently linked with a move to Real Madrid, who on Thursday, along with city rivals Atletico, were hit by a FIFA ban on incoming players in the next two complete transfer windows.Real, banned over transfers involving under-18s, can sign players this month, but Kane will not be among them.“Harry Kane is not for sale,” added Pochettino, who is looking for a player to complement the talents of his talisman.“We cannot change after one result our plan and our view about our squad.“I’ve explained a lot of times that if we find the right profile and the player that can improve our squad, we work hard for that.“If we can add some player, we are open [to it].” Mauricio Pochettino and Claudio Ranieri 1last_img read more
