Pochettino keen to reverse Tottenham trend

May 4, 2017 - 10:12 PM Mauricio Pochettino wants Tottenham to be the hunters not the hunted when it comes to attracting the world's top talents.

Kyle Walker is the latest Spurs player to be attracting interest after Dele Alli, Danny Rose, Toby Alderweireld, Eric Dier and Christian Eriksen have all been linked with moves away.

Tottenham have been forced to sell their star names in recent years and they still cannot compete financially with the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea.

But Pochettino, whose side sit second in the Premier League, wants Spurs to become a club that players want to join rather than leave.

"We want to move the club to the last level," Pochettino said.

"At the moment if we are capable of moving the club in the next few years to the last level you will see maybe the rumours will stop because when you compare Tottenham to - I don't know I want to be very respectful - to Manchester United or this type of club, you do not see the same sort of rumours as down here."

Spurs have the chance to crank up the pressure on Chelsea this weekend - they can reduce the gap at the top to one point, before the Blues face Middlesbrough on Monday.

They must first, however, beat West Ham at the London Stadium, where the Hammers have struggled for form this term.
