Anyone who thinks this is primarily for money, that is not the case.

Asked about Levy's comments on other clubs spending big, Pochettino said on BBC Radio 5 live: "My knowledge of business is very low, and of course I respect his opinion".

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has assured fans that they will sign up to four players before the end of the transfer window. "I don't want to compare us with other clubs who have made signings before us in the previous two seasons and we have finished above them".

But Robertson is unlikely to be a game changer, while Salah's last taste of the Premier League with Chelsea was utterly forgettable. In England we are not used to playing with half a stadium empty.

With Rose and fellow long-term absentee Erik Lamela sidelined through injury and Kyle Walker sold to Manchester City, Spurs have depleted options to choose from at St James' Park.

"Then there is a second tier of Spurs, Arsenal and Liverpool... with Tottenham at the head of that pack filling the fourth-place slot".

Spurs are yet to buy any new players in this transfer window and Rose, 27, told The Sun they needed to sign "world-class players" and "not players you have to Google and say, 'Who's that?'"

On paper, City have by far the best squad in the division and boast a manager who is not only considered one of the best in the business but of all-time. So can they fill it in every game? The pair would likely be rotated on a consistent basis which might be at odds with Rose's ambitions of being a key player.

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 worldwide if he becomes available on the transfer market.

Turkish outfit Trabzonspor are understood to be interesting in securing his services, but for the time being he remains at Spurs. The deal shows the influence that the richest club have over the rest of the league.

Publicly, Pochettino backs chairman Daniel Levy's cautious approach in an historically expensive market.

"When you have young players with a good understanding and another year of experience, they have to be better, so I don't think it will be a problem for them because they have the same manager, the same staff, the same players and more experience in the Premier League, so they will be even more unsafe".

Rose broke ranks this week in an explosive interview in which he said he is worth more than Tottenham are paying him and would consider an offer from another club. "Time is running out and I do want to win trophies".
