Spurs boss says Harry Kane finds his praise 'boring'

They have lost Kyle Walker at right-back to rivals Manchester City, and while Kieran Trippier is considered just as good, they have been left with very little in the way of a replacement if the 26-year-old becomes injured or needs to be rested. If we do what we have to do and do it in a professional way, thinking about football as a priority, we can improve.

Pochettino said Spurs would make signings before the August 31 transfer deadline but warned: "It's not an easy job".

BT Sport pundit Jermaine Jenas told Express Sport: "Where Arsenal have been very good and very strong is they've had the ability to sell their stars and still move in that direction".

Mauricio Pochettino has publicly stated that he wants to sign players before the end of the transfer window, but it appears that chairman Daniel Levy is of a different opinion.

Giles also discussed Conte' s unhappiness at Chelsea and the other contenders for the Premier League title.

Who are Tottenham Hotspur most likely to sign during the summer transfer window?

The South Korean star played a pivotal role in Tottenham's title challenge last season, and despite injury picked up on worldwide duty last month, the 25-year-old is in contention to be fit to start on Sunday.

With this additional time to reach greater levels of fitness and regain match sharpness, could Kane start the season in the same sort of fashion which he has finished the previous three?

"For a long time there was the big four, but nowadays there are six teams competing for those Champions League slots and I see it as two groups of three", Jenas added. Possibly the worst signing Spurs have made in recent years. "Or Dele Alli or Kante". Anything above that would be gravy.

Whilst the likes of Toby Alderweireld, Eric Dier and Harry Kane have all stayed with the club, left back Danny Rose has caused a storm in the build-up to tomorrow's kick off against Newcastle United by suggesting to The Sun that he feels underpaid and may look to leave if the right offer arrives. If two-time golden boot victor Kane misses significant time this year like he did last year, Spurs will be relying on players like Vincent Janssen, Moussa Sissoko, Kevin Wimmer, and Georges-Kevin N'Koudou. Will Spurs challenge for the title again this season under him? "I don't know. A full Wembley Stadium is fantastic".

Spurs will play all their home games at the national stadium this term while the construction of their new stadium, which replaces White Hart Lane, is completed. A few clunkers at "home" next season could force Spurs off the rails.

Harry Kane. He is Tottenham's talisman, their home grown superstar, and the best striker in the Premier League two years running.
