Mauricio Pochettino has revealed Tottenham are in the market for up to two more signings before the transfer window shuts.
Spurs have made only two senior signings this summer, with midfielder Victor Wanyama joining from Southampton and striker Vincent Janssen being prised from Holland.
Wanyama played the full 90 minutes of the opening-day 1-1 Premier League draw at Everton on Saturday, while Janssen came off the bench after 56 minutes as a replacement for Eric Dier.
Pochettino admitted his team were below par in the first half but was more satisfied by the second-half display and praised Janssen following his introduction.
Tottenham have been working on a deal to sign attacking midfielder Kevin-Georges N’Koudou from Marseille and Pochettino strongly suggested the 21-year-old may not be the only new arrival before the transfer window shuts.
“I have spoken that we may get one or two,” said Pochettino on Saturday evening, as quoted by the BBC Sport live blog (5.10pm). “We are very open, it is not easy to bring in players who can help us but we are trying.”
The words of the manager will be of encouragement to supporters, who will have noted the lack of experience of the substitutes at Goodison Park.
Rookies Josh Onomah, Cameron Carter-Vickers and Harry Winks were all on the bench even though they have minimal first-team experience.
In other Tottenham transfer news, the club hope to agree three new deals as a fourth is already in place.
